Great Greasy Spoon!

Sent here by some of the crew on our cruise ship. This place is busy. They are great about forewarning you how long the order will take...because they realize they have a tourist population from the cruise ships that may need to meet a timeline. Great burgers & fish and chips. Small indoor... read more

Maybe I would not have been so disappointed except that the place was so hyped up. It was an overcooked hockey puck burger that was too expensive.

This is one of the best places to get a burger in town. They have salads if you are more into the veggies, but if you are a person who enjoys a beef or chicken burger you have found the right place. Their sitting area is small a usually crowded, so make a plan to take out your order and... More

Stopped at Burger Queen on a quick shore leave from our cruise last week. Not a lot of highly rated restaurants in Ketchikan and we were tired of eating seafood every day so this was a welcome change. The Seattle Burger was awesome, but it was even better because I had them add Bacon and Cheese. YUMMY! The shakes were... More

This place had a 40 minute wait to get something to eat but it was worth it. Had a cheeseburger and french fries and was on par with Five Guys and In N Out. Not cheap eats but once again this is Alaska.

Burgers were absolutely amazing! In an area where you are in seafood heaven, it is nice to find a local good hamburger. Lots of varieties and toppings. Also can get milk shakes. Built along the side a mountain and in a historical building really neat place.

We went here for lunch as we work on a cruise ship and this place is recommended among a few crew. The burgers were outstanding. They were so good we went back for dinner before the ship sailed. The Halibut Sandwich was amazing and so were the onion rings. Best Onion Rings!!! The milkshakes are also delicious. Best part is... More

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
