I went with a friend who loves the place and eats there regularly. I ordered the so-called halibut and chips, when it came it was pollack and chips. I'll never eat there again. The lousy food took forever to be cooked and the place wasn't busy. I don't know why people like the place. But that's my town for ya.

If you're looking for a good ol' America burger, dripping with great toppings, hot off the grill - don't go anywhere else. Fries are also fantastic and the milkshakes are out of this world, come in dozens of flavors and are made with real ice cream. They offer chicken burgers as well - seafood options and salads. The t-shirts on... More

Had the grilled chicken with cottage cheese. Very good food with great service. They actually cook their meat on an actual grill. Will return for sure.

Very small and very classic but people rave about the burgers. My friends did anyway. I had a milkshake. Hmmmmm. Don't be in a hurry even if it ISN'T crowded... there's only a couple of tables and a few outdoor picnic tables... don't forget you're in a rainforest. Very walkable and close to city center.

The Seattle burger is the best! Great milkshakes as well. Try the huckleberry cheesecake shake...so good! Wasn't a huge fan of the fish and chips, but burger queen definitely has the best burgers in town! Seating can be difficult when busy and when busy food can take a while (they'll warn you before you order) but not an issue with... More

Great selection of food, not to mention a diverse selection of cheeseburger options. Speaking of cheeseburgers, they were pretty good. Not fantastic, but pretty darn tasty. Staff was friendly, but not over the top - a bit of what you'd expect walking into the place. Not a complaint, as I enjoyed the staff. They even took our large order close... More

We went there because it was close to the ship and the name seemed to be a rip off of Burger King. At first, I was a little leery as there wasn't any empty tables in the little room and they also said it would be a half an hour before the food would be ready. We ordered anyways and... More

Had a great burger this evening before i left the town of Ketchikan, and to say it was to my liking would be an understatement. The prompt service and the juicy burger were just what i wanted to finish my day here. The milkshakes phew!! , its a winner .... Definitely recommend to my friends and family...

Ketchikan can be funny, after all the Cruise ships leave, a lot of places simply shut down. On a high recommendation, we went to Burger Queen. Not a tourist place and it was excellent. Real Burgers, and all food, was prepared well and was yummy. Very small, very busy place that cooks food to order, so don't come if you... More
