This is one of the must see and eat places in Ketchikan! Depending on the port your cruise boat comes in, it's either across the street or just a mile down the waterfront street. Definitely a hole-in-the-wall place. The milk shakes are amazing and have over 30 flavors. Seattle burger with all grilled veggies and jalapeños on it is so... More

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.

getting here take like 10-15 mins walk maybe less from the docks. But it is worth it. You will not be disappointed. Made fresh and quick, and very filling. the staff are funny and love to chat. :) if you are ever in town go and grab one, you will fall in love.

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
