First Review by Brevity

Best, most authentic Mexican food in Anchorage - Edit

UPDATE (2016): While this is still our favorite Mexican restaurant in town, in fairness I have to update this review by noting that the portions have diminished noticeably over the past few years. The burritos, enchiladas, and gorditas all have gotten quite a bit smaller, to the point where we have to order more food now to be satisfied. It won't stop us from eating there (yet), but I can sympathize with folks who feel the amount of food they get is no longer worth the already-high prices.

ORIGINAL REVIEW (2011): Anchorage has quite a few Mexican restaurants, but the vast majority of them are not vegetarian-friendly (lard in the refried beans, etc.). Fortunately, the best in town, Mexico In Alaska, has an extensive vegetarian menu. My family and I eat there frequently, and we always have plenty of options to choose from. We've tried many of their offerings, and everything has been delicious -- I especially love their mole sauce. As another reviewer pointed out, they don't serve your typical Americanized Mexican fare; it's much more authentic. (How often will you find a cactus dish on the menu?) Aside from the food, the decor is pleasing, and the service is generally very prompt. The prices are fairly high, even for Anchorage, but the servings are ample -- and, of course, the food is worth it.

Highly recommended!

Tea lovers - Edit

Mexico in Alaska is not "Tex-Mex." While it offers the standard beans, rice and corn in most meals on the menu, etc., it also has a few unusual things like homemade chocolate mole sauce. It's a cut above other Mexican restaurants in Anchorage. The best thing in the whole place is the ice tea though. The owner created this blend and guards the recipe zealously. It's like breathing in and drinking flowers at the same time. If you like tea, you must try this one.
