Wonderful Food +Great Service

Enjoyed the Low Carb Burger with their great salad topped with blue cheese. They serve a great half chicken too! Always great customer relations with the youthful service providers. Their delivery service is always timely and friendly.

The food at Burger Queen takes a bit of time to get, but that is because they make everything after you order, no old burgers or fries that have been sitting under a heat lamp for an extended period of time. Staff are always friendly and make sure that they order is right. I have eaten the veggie burger several... More

Flat out,the best burger and fries in Ketchikan. The half order of halibut and salad is just about the perfect lunch. Everything is cooked to order. They can get busy some times, but it is worth the short wait.

Not for the price-sensitive or health-conscious, but if you want an old-school burger dripping cholesterol from the corners of your mouth, this is the place. It's on the main drag, perhaps a little north of the well worn cruise ship passengers' well-worn pedestrian paths, but not by far. It won't wear you out. It comes up quickly after you pass... More

Always hit the Burger Queen for one of the best burgers in the southeast. It reminds me of the burger joints of my youth. Nothing fancy but the burgers speak for theirselves...Awesome

Arrive early to get a seat or do take-out. The selection boggles the mind and any choice is a good one. This was one of the first places I tried upon moving to Ketchikan, and I visited several times afterwards. Don't miss these burgers!

The food is good although I'm almost positive they use msg in their burgers. It hits the spot when you're feeling like having a naughty burger and fries. Some of the best food in Ketchikan.

This place is pretty good, but sometimes it can take quite a bit of time for your food. Anyone that has not been to alaska before will be a bit surprised at the price, but its about normal for alaska. They have more than burgers as well, like chicken and fish 'n chips. The food is decent but I diddnt... More
