REVIEWS OF Serrano's Mexican Grill IN Alaska

shahab aria

Quality of the food was good and servers were polite. Prices was reasonable in compare to quality and quantity. Location of the restaurant is not the best.

Theresa Philbrick

Not bad. Not much different than other tacos offered around town If it was my place, I'd turn it into an all you eat taco bar. Focus on that. Charge 10 bucks. Lettuce tomato cheese w cheap hard taco shells.

Kessashun Arthur

This is an excellent place to get some authentic Mexican food. The menu isn't huge, but they cover all of the bases. What sets them apart from your average Mexican restaurant is the amount of flavor packed into their meats. No matter what you get, you can expect nothing on your plate to be boring. Their freshly made corn tortillas and salsas are also excellent additions to any meal. From my experience, service is friendly and fast. I'd certainly recommend Serrano's if you're in search of Mexican food in Anchorage.


The food is so fresh and delicious. My order was correct and spicy like I love it. Southwestern egg rolls are too die for. The much much dinner is more than enough food. Great place and will be ordering again soon.

Lex Roberts

Fast service and a nice place.

James Fagan

The dance music was jarring. It was not a nice atmosphere for eating lunch.


Bit pricey but very good

Jason Tomberlin

Good Mexican food is hard to come by in Anchorage. This place has food flavor and is quick enough for a lunch stop. Coworkers and I frequent this place.

Steven Campanella

Used to think this place was hands down the best. However, I now can't go in without a major change taking place. Used to give two amazing tortillas with tacos, changed to one. had jalapeno spears, changed to wheels. Carne asada is greasy and inconsistent, and most recently the layout was changed. The booths by the windows were changed to tables. Privacy is gone.

Jason Murray

We had our department holiday get together there. The catered food was simple, and delicious.

Aubergine Queen

For the price, I was expecting better quality food. We were set down at a table with no silverware (we had to hunt down another table that was free since there were no wait staff in sight) and when we sat down, our food was cold. Again, for the price we paid, it should have been better.

Matt Cope

Good Mexican food and great staff. Fast service, great place for lunch

ron cummings

Tacos great, staff friendly. Food prepared quickly.

High Quality, Low Prices This place is on my short-list of favorites in Anchorage. It’s the best value for your buck if you want good Mexican food. Prices are similar to Taco King but the food quality is noticeably better at Serrano's and it feels a lot less like fast food. It's an order-at-the-counter-then-sit style dining room, with self-serve fountain drinks and salsa bar (also similar to T King, but they bring food out to you instead of yelling at you to come get it). The atmosphere is superior to what you would expect at this price. They have outdoor tables in the summer so you don't have to miss a minute of the rare warm afternoon in AK. Let's not forget the beer. Yep, they have beer. When I go out for Mexican, I can’t think of a reason I would go any other place in town.

Rich RUssell

Had green enchiladas tatted ok


Great food with big portions for very reasonable prices.

Elisha Waugh

I've been going here since they opened and in my opinion they are the best Mexican food in town! Highly recommended!!!

Taylor Kelley

Best Mexican food since I left Cali. Street tacos are delicious, great draft beers and super friendly staff, very clean too. Good prices, great jobs amigos!

Steve Voeks

Great food and clean place!

Adm Fa

Great Mexican food! You order at the counter and the food is delivered to your table. Self-serve Salsa Bar and Self-serve soft drinks. Definitely going back!

Thomas Greenman

Tasty, Trendy & Fast! A quick serve and sit down restaurant with a limited but strong menu of favorites that are sure to please your Mexicano cravings. With a tailored selection of beer and wine, this is a good spot for a nice sit down meal or a quick bit to eat. My favorite was the street tacos - which were fresh and bursting with flavor from the cilantro, onions and carne asada. With some lime to squeeze over the top, it's a quick bite that is my absolute favorite. Rice and beans on the side that were probably some of the best I've ever had (I swear the rice was made with a chicken stock - very flavorful). They also have a salsa bar with some very nice mild like chipotle sauce to some 911 that will literally make your lips feel the heat straight away! Serrano's - I'm coming back!

Michelle Mitton

It favorite place for Mexican food. Great taco salad

Christina Brewer

Great food. Reasonably priced and quick enough to be a good lunch option on a work day.

Beda Warrick

Meh. I've been here a few times now and am still not getting what the buzz is about. It's basically a wraps place. And that does nothing for me. It's also usually not the cleanest place I've been in either, with tables that need cleaned, etc. I occasionally get dragged back with friends, but it certainly would not be my choice.

Philip Weedin

Foods great, atmosphere is great, chips and salsa is great, workers are great, everything at Serrano's (if you haven't already discovered) is great. If you like Mexican food, I recommend this place.


I go here almost every time I happen to be in Anchorage. They are great at accommodating large walk-in parties, and the food is always top quality. The servers are also very quick to take your plate once you are finished which leaves the dining room constantly clean and welcoming. It's hard to try other restaurants because Serrano's always has great food at what I would consider to be a cheap price

Mishelle Johnson

Great food and good value

Carrier Bookkeeping

Good Food

NoneOf YourBusiness

Love this place! They grew their own jalapeños this summer...gotta love that! Food is delicious, service is friendly and the outdoor seating is charming.

Kristine Kennedy

Excellent flavor, fair prices, clean and friendly were my 1st impressions. Hoping return visits will prove consistency too!

Glen M. Allen

Good Mexican grub, made fresh, not microwave food like so many other restaurants... we'll no the one's that do?!!!

Martin Marshall

Solid Mexican food in Anchorage. Nice combination of counter service ordering with a great salsa bar and a nice sit down and relax environment.

Jose Morales

The outdoor dining area was awesome Our family dinner was great here. The food was delicious.

Brian Welch

Tasty socal mexican food with good selection. Taco Salad had a lot of meat and "taco" portions and not too much of the "salad". It was a good balance.

M Tauf

Bomb food and great service. Caught the end of a world cup game here. The restaurant looks very nice and clean.

Alyssa Wade

Absolutely amazing! Food was terrific and the atmosphere was great! We went has a big group with lots of little kids and had a great time! I would recommend this place to anyone!!

Sarah Allyn

A chain restaurant that tastes and feels like a chain restaurant.

Gwen Forestal

I went here for the first time this week for lunch. When you go in there's a chalkboard menu and an area to order where they give you a number to take to any table you like. I ordered the traditional enchiladas and they were great! They came with beans and rice as well. It was pretty quiet on a weekday at 1 and I was able to order, eat, and leave in under 35min which I appreciated! I would recommend a try.


Very good food. Not a texmex place.

Evan Schiltz

Good enchiladas and rice, beans were pleasantly not heavily seasoned. Salsa goes from mild and flavorful to hotter-then-I-prefer. Quality smoked poblano used for the Chile relleno. Real queso fresco in use. Owner is straight from East Los Angeles and cares that you are satisfied. I'd go back.

Jon Lindquist

This place has the best Mexican food 8n Anchorage. Service was good and the food was excellent.

Phil Samson

The most expensive Michelada ($10) in town and also the worst. Tall stein filled with ice, waters down the drink to a pink drink...Macho dinner ($14) should be called a nacho dinner, small potions-carne asada seemed boiled; definitely wasn’t grilled steak...girl at the counter was very slow and rude...not many diners in the restaurant and now I know why...adios serranos

Walsh Brown

Good food and good service...everything was fresh...try the horchata with your meal

S Duvall

Food is delicious or maybe I was hungry but either way good food & also speedy service! 5stars n my book!

Jamie Thorne

The perfect Mexican restaurant. Exactly what you would expect. Steak tacos and burritos all day!

Audrey Morris

Really good authentic Mexican food. Great salsa bar. Fast carryout.

Marie Rowan

just checking out the menu

Megan Roderigues

Went here for dinner and it was awesome! The southwest egg rolls were the best I had ever had and the authentic enchiladas were made with a delicious sause that tasted homemade.

Yael Cruz

I just love this place

Brady Kuenning

We had a blast on cinco de mayo.

Jacob Foster

Such great Mexican food. high quality, and reasonable price

Reese Delavan

Food is great, service is good, place is clean; but I dislike the find your own table, grab a menu, and then go back to the bar to order and pay system.

Dana Bryan

Reasonably priced. A young atmosphere with good food hot and fast.


I have always loved their Southwestern Egg Rolls and their rice is so good but a while back I received rice that was dried out and egg rolls that were still cold in the middle.... I stopped going for a long time after and when I finally gave it another try it took 2 and a half hours to get my order delivered and the food was room temperature... (I was still charged for the entire order including the delivery charge)

Tom and Roberta Hurt

Enjoyed our meal. Flan was excellent!

Timothy Jansen

If im hungry for taco salad this is the place where u find delicious taco salad

fireAK ems

The best Mexican in Anchorage. The proprietor is a real nice fellow, and remembers faces, which I enjoy. Has a good salsa bar, though it is a little small. The salsa selections are homemade, and there is also as much sour sour cream as you could need. The food though. Man is it good. I've had 5 different dishes there so far, and each one was off the hook, with large portion sizes. Highly recommended.

Carla Garza Beckerley

Authentic and fun flavors.

Jia Hui Sim

Favourite Mexican food in town ! Beef tongue taco is my favourite

beautifully_blended By Yours Truly

If you come from the lower 48, you'll appreciate this resturant

Miguel Hernandez

Was pretty good. Wish it was open later.

pyrex and baking soda

Never disappoints.

Emily M. Taylor

Good Mexican food and Great service! We are from Texas and has the barbacoa, rice and beans with an Horchata. Plus chips, salsa and guacamole. If you need some good Mexican food in Alaska, this is your spot!

maia arnesen

I just went here last week for the first time since the renovations. Excellent restaurant; great service; really cool decor! The southwestern egg rolls beats Chili's hands down. Homemade and fresh to order; it's awesome. The cilantro fries are good as well.

Jace Toney

Surprisingly great. The exterior of the building was dark which made me question if it was open. Love the different homemade salsas.

Chris Walker

Very good but a bit too salty for me.


Excellent Mexican food. Only bummer is you have to buy your own chips and salsa. But totally worth it!!

Xavier Orozco

Best tacos in Anchorage. They changed the tortillas and that was a major win decision. They taste even better now. The meat (carne asada) is so juicy and tender. Sauces are great and they have two brews that are made for them by someone else I think. Very good beers. I've only had tasters but they will work well with tacos. If I could give them 6 stars I would.

Steve Miller

Good food - bit pricey. Surprised to see it is not a full service restaurant.

Scott Martin

The food is good and I continue to go back I would recommend it did anybody who likes Mexican food

Bonnie Davie

Amazing food! The Carne Asada fries are delicious! Tasty salsa selections, fast friendly service, and a great location. Highly recommended, we will certainly be back for more!

Phil Izon

Amazing food, great location, some of the best Mexican in Anchorage. Highly recommend and I have been multiple times. It is great for the lunch crowd or to take your gf or wife out on a date. The food is very well prepared and tasty.

Eric N

Ah yes. Delicious food. My wife loves it here as well. Great staff. The ordering process is a bit different but just grab a menu, decide what sounds good and walk up and order. 8/10

Michael Lewis

Clean, friendly, fast! It will be one of my regular stop places.

Carmin Beck

This place is decieving from the outside. The inside is cute and clean with a nice vibe. There are chili plants growing in pots near the windows (I saw serranos and jalapeños). They have a nice selection of local beers on draft. The enchiladas we're amazing. There were two and served with refried beans and rice. There is also a salsa bar! I highly enjoyed my food.

marta zegzdryn

Always delicious and satisfying. They have the best rice and beans I’ve ever had. The street tacos are perfect every time, the ceviche is fresh and tasty. There a salsa bar with a full selection of house made salads and sour cream, and the whole place is always clean and the staff is always friendly.

Michael Copenharve

Good food, relatively inexpensive

Benjamin Hutt

Good food, great summer patio, friendly service.

Jorge Perez

Authentic Mexican food! Grilled chicken tacos are amazing, also great salsa selection! Highly recommended

Bree Sandoval

Excellent food! We had the tomato and avocado salad, street tacos, and parmesan cilantro fries. Wonderful service and the portions were filling. Thanks!

kim harris

We had the chicken Chipotle dinner special. It was delicious. The salsa bar was also fabulous. Order at counter and they bring it to youroom table. Very authentic.

Mari Rueter

I absolutely love this place, one of my favorites for Mexican in Anchorage :)They have a pretty simple menu, but it's enough to choose from between Street Tacos and their amazing Serrano's burrito (which I can never finish because it's so filling). I love being able to drink a Horchata (creamy drink with cinnamon and vanilla flavor)! The staff is always friendly and they serve you quick! I love their salsa bar so you can take what you want for your food. It has a fun atmosphere like Middle Way Cafe does! I highly recommend trying this place :)

John Albee

The food and ambiance were both very nice. I will definitely go back again.

Paul Kron

The food is great fast service friendly staff you can't go wrong here

Rich Hamilton

Solid lunch option - good Food - and I am from TX. :)

Marcus Brooks

1 star is for the owner(s), the food it is really good! Owner(s) dont respect the employees ,they don't get paid on time, never, that's really sad.. Hopefully they will gonna change the attitude !

Bill Ryan

They lost their beer and wine license but the food is still great.

Michael Coeto

Great Mexican/Texmex food! Fast service and good prices.

Hilda Mark

It was great and good food

Helene Mark

Learning how to eat Mexican food. Thanks.

gary moore

Gas. Food rx

James Massey

Fantastic food and wonderful customer service! Next time I come I'll try the burgers. I've seen a lot of people ordering them and they look great. The food comes hot, fresh, and very fast. Its also the only place I know own that serves a good horchata in Anchorage.

Deborah J.

Great service!

phyllis griffin

Great ambiance! Great menu and a change of pace from your typical steakhouses.

chaperon rouge

Aficionados of boxing champions, Soccer fans, younger and not so young folks, tourists from all walks of life, all will find a satisfying meal nestled in this GREAT little hole in the wall.

BreeAnna Erickson

Best Mexican food in Anchorage.

Billie Longfellow

Great food, clean, good service, and salsa bar!

Josh M

Super fan of their chimichanga. Everyone that I have brought here thinks it's great.

Sherry M

My family and I decided to try this restaurant for the first time a few nights ago as it was recommended by a colleague of mine. My first impression was that the decor was nice and the place was clean. I didn't know that we had to order at the counter first before choosing a table; however, this didn't ruin our experience here. The person taking our order was friendly and offered suggestions. When our food was served, we couldn't wait to dig in. We ordered the chimichanga, burrito, torta, burger, and asada fries w/pork. All of it was delicious! All seasoned perfectly and not over done. My fave, so far though, is the asada fries w/pork. You have to try this! You won't be disappointed. Overall, great place. We'll be back ;)

Scott Wasmer

Great food and service.

Priscilla Velarde

This place is very expensive for a quick service restaurant. It’s $4 for a very small street taco and additional charges for different types of tacos. It’s was $12.40 for two tacos and a side of chips. The food was good but not worth the price.

Brian Staub

Like homemade! Every item is full of flavor and a decent portion. Very friendly staff and the place has been clean every time.

Jon Brines

Super good food. My new favorite Mexican kitchen in all of Alaska.

Lauren Howard

Got the OG Burrito, pretty tasty but you better be ready for an insane amount of cheese. I usually opt for the street tacos which I am especially fond of.

Jon Anderson

Another solid choice for Mexican food. Although they weren't serving beer or wine during my visit, I was assured they would be again soon. I have never gone wrong with the special. But I do order the soup on occasion. It is a great place to come in out of the cold to. Very reasonable prices. they have two locations and both are good.

Marcy Peterson

Food was good. My rating is about you responsible for water cutlery and napkins.

Samuel Moore

Consistent and decent Mexican food. And you can enjoy it with a cold beer. (Great salsa selection too!)

Dustin Olson

Serrano's has some of the best shredded chicken and delicious smoked beans.

Brian Hughes

Awesome and delicious food, great staff, and excellent customer service! Highly recommend you come here and eat!

Anthony Girlardo

Best tacos in Anchorage!! Lots of Mexican beers


Great food great service

Francine Dufour Jones

I loved my experience there. Fabulous food served with up beat and happy staff. Now one of my favorite places to eat. YUM

Scott Chow

My favorite place for street tacos and always a fun relaxed atmosphere. I think they should just switch to full table service, they're borderline fast food with the current set up.

Virginia Szablewski

Came twice. Got chilis relleno and street tacos. Delish. Chipotle shrimp burrito which is enough for 2 people. Also taco salad. I would recommend this to everybody.

Drew Cason

Delicious food, helpful and friendly service, laid back but not lax vibe. Both an everyday favorite, and worth a pick on special occasions, like my birthday lunch today :D Highly recommend.

Bre Fox

Always an amazing place to grab lunch! I highly recommend their daily specials :)

Dr A

Maybe it’s that we’ve just drove in from Texas and are used to the food in Texas, Colorado, Arizona, California, Kansas, New Mexico and even Wyoming. This falls far short of all of those states. No vegetarian options. Pork in the refried beans. Probably not a problem for most but it was for us. Order at counter and food brought to table. Staff is friendly enough but they need to retrain in the lower 48 to get the food right. Probably should have moved on when we walked in but gave it a try. Won’t make the same mistake again.

Linda Rusche

This place is a favorite. Consistently good food and good service! The fajita option is veggie only and no skirt steak.

Ryan Butler

Our favourite local Mexican spot. Great food, great service, reasonable prices.

Lisa Tocco

Nice, clean restaurant. Great food! Very hip place to eat out.

Margaret Robinson

Quick service for take out and good food. I usually get the beef tongue or la lengua.

Brian Booth

Service started little slow, had the pork torta, not enough meat, taste and quality good, but seemed like half portion of meat

Staci Duquet

This place is amazing. We personally loved this place better than La Hacienda in town. Our favorite part is they have a salsa bar! They have great beers on tap and the service is fast. It's not exactly a sit down place but a setting where you order first and sit with a number and they bring the food to you. They have the best tacos and it's very affordable

Lana Chesley

When we ordered, the food came almost immediately and tasted like it might have been sitting around waiting to be ordered. It wasn’t disgusting, but it definitely isn’t good enough to merit coming here a second time.

Joe Walk

Nice little place, food was delicious and the staff was great. Would recommend trying it out

Melanie Mangione

I've eaten here since the day they opened, always delicious with friendly staff and owners. My go-to to Mexican food.

Seth Sanderson

Great tacos good prices welcoming atmosphere.

Andy Rodriguez

Update!...Thanks again guys, food s good. I think the ceviche would be better served in a little bowl...but that’s just me...I like thou (Original...sometime early 2018) I love Serranos, their shrimp tostada is amazing, work of art!! My grandma came up for a week to visit me and i took her there to get a quick bite and we ended up going 3 more times after that. I'm grateful to the staff, they were super polite and respectful to her. Thx guys!

Jameson Ahern

Awesome carne asada, and I can't wait to try their El Pastor Wednesday special!

Paris Barnes Olson

Asada Fries

Steven Exelby

Good food, good prices. Try the steak burrito if you're really hungry. Try the 3 street tacos if not. Salsa choices, most are too hot for me but I'm a wimp that way.

Roxanne Rohweder

This is our family's favorite place for a casual dinner out. Good food, friendly staff and relaxing atmosphere.

Van Lewark

Food is great. Order then sit down kinda place. Fast and cheap. Loses a star for me because they don't have a liquor license for margaritas. If you don't want one, this is the place to go!

Kasindra Van Meter

The street tacos were on point, I especially loved the pork and grilled chicken ones. The beans and rice were flavorful as well, which was surprising since they are usually just bland sides. The service was great, the restaurant is clean and has a trendy, modern appearance. This will now be our go-to spot for tacos and beer!


Some of the best street tacos in town- and HALF-PRICE on Tuesdays!

Universe Critic

A blend of authentic, signature and original flavor. The serrano salsa is great, just wish they werent so skimpy with some of their ingredients. Great local beer selection.

Kevin Smith

Great food and great service. You can't go wrong with a Monster Bean and Cheese burrito with cilantro and onions.

Gabriela Vieira Clark

The food is delicious!! I love the Carne Assada plates. The staff is adorable, very friendly. I extremely recommend Serrano’s.

Candice Rathbone

Amazing food here. Everything I've tried has been delicious and I've tried about 1/4 of the menu. The cheesecake chimichangas are genius. Great delivery service. My food always arrives hot and faster than expected.

cin cin

Service could be more friendly..Food was okay.

Jae Shin

My go-to taqueria.

Danielle Zeedar

Delicious food! The tacos are my fav.

Tyler Randolph

Delicious Mexican food. The location is super easy to get to. The food is top notch and the service is great. All the staff here make you feel very welcome and you can tell they truely love sharing their great food with people.

Windy Lee

Absolutely phenomenal! We've been searching everywhere for a Mexican restaurant that wasn't afraid to use spice! The food was flavorful and delicious to the last bite! The salsa bar has eight different choices from mild to melt your face off. By far the best Mexican food in Anchorage! This will be our regular place from now on! I can't say enough good things about Serrano's!

Barbara Nydegger

Delicious food, and eager to be helpful and please the customers! All four couples in our party would go back in a heartbeat. But we are visiting from Indiana!

Genny Parshall

Very delicious food, it is on our list of "where do you want to eat tonight?" answers because it is delicious, quick, and my whole family can enjoy themselves.

Mark Francis

Good service and clean! Had nachos and they were delicious.

Pearl Ferguson

Our food was pretty bland except for the beans. They have the best beans!

Austin Mahan

Street tacos were fantastic. Edit: recently came in for a steak quesadilla. Was disappointed with the most grisly, greasy, and gross thing I've eaten here ever. Dunno if it was a fluke or...


Food was decent and not too far off after traditional Mexican fare. They currently can't serve booze so be ready for that (as of 4-17-17). Prices are reasonable for Anchorage and for what you get. Nice salsa bar here too. No wait when we went.

milo eakins

came here for Alaska brews week tacos and taps event but none of the staff were aware of such event. bummer. I got the lingua tacos and they were good! the beans and rice could habe been better but still good. the beer is good though.

Brian Myers

Easily the best cheap date food in town. I've never been less than 1000% satisfied with anything I've had. Very nice people, VERY fast service. The chorizo burrito is amazing.

Emily Messer

Delicious and interesting collection of Mexican food. Fast service and they have a self serve free salsa and sauce bar :) Good for take out too!

Timothy Fisher

Seranos and las marquitas (on Dimond Blvd) are the two best Mexican restaurants I've ever had.

Mickey Noel

Best food and great service.

Serena Dowling

It's always good! Beans and rice are far better than anywhere else. I can get in and out quickly during my lunch break.

yep 100

Love the steak rice bowls i asked then to cook up and serve with veggies (red and green bell peppers and onion) it cost 3$ more but omt sooo soooo soooooo good!!!

4smores ok

Best in Anchorage and they have hibiscus iced tea!
