Winter Specials

The Pilgrim and the Reuben sandwich specials this winter are both excellent! Two of us from our sewing group frequently order and pick up our dinner to eat at sewing. The orders are always ready when we get there and taste so good.

They cook your burger on charcoal. Some people even say they have the best shakes in town. My go-to order is the Seattle burger with Swiss.

These are the best burgers in the whole city, yeah you couldn't ask for better burger and the service is awesome and the place is always kept it nice and clean, but there is not much for parking so you driving the car go to park somewhere else. But next to that D's burgers are like the best ever

My wife and I ate there after reading some reviews of the place. It was everything we expected and more! VERY friendly staff (and very attentive). The food was excellent (my wife and I shared the 4 piece halibut basket). we had a milkshake for 'dessert' and it was delicious! It's a quaint little place, but don't let that fool... More

From the outside this little burger bar looks like a shack. From the inside it looks even worse but the food is the best! Family run, it is a favourite of the sailors from the cruise ships and although we only had room for some fries we have to say they were the best chips we have ever had. The... More

Burger Queen was recommended by our tour guide; when we arrived, we realized it's where all the cruise ship crew members go too! Long line = goooooood food! My husband got fish (halibut) and chips and said it was towards the top of his list as far as fish and chips go! I got a chicken sandwich (I know, a... More

It was suggested as the favorite of locals for a great burger. Had a burger, large onion rings, and chocolate shake. $19.97 plus tip. Like everything else in Alaska, not cheap but great memories. I would recommend this place.

Can't really get my head around the love being shown for the burgers from this place. Both burgers we got were way over cooked and didn't even have the same toppings on each. The fries were spot on,cooked perfectly and fresh. I'd definitely try another option next time I'm in Ketchikan.
