Classic Diner, Wasilla Style

The atmosphere is the typical classic diner with booth and table seating. If you head there on a Sunday, be warned that you maybe have to wait a while for a seat and then for your meal, even after you've place the order. This place seems to be the local hot spot for the Wasilla area. Good... read more

My wife and I visit Wasilla and our daughter's family a couple of times each year. With four adults and three kids Mat-Su Family Restaurant is the perfect place to bring the family. They have an extensive menu which that suits all all of us including the fussy children. The restaurant is clean, roomy, the wait staff attentive, and the... More

I have eaten here and liked it a lot. Your good basic home made food. Well worth a visit. I love menus & this place has a nice one to study and to choose from. I always love seeing it's still there when I drive into Wasilla on my not too often travels there.

The restaurant overall was okay, nothing fantastic but not horrible. They offered your average diner menu with burgers and sandwiches.

I am a regular for breakfast. I have tried several different breakfasts, but I always fall back to my favorite - the Alaska skillet. All their egg breakfasts include three eggs. I like my eggs basted easy, and in all the years I have eaten here I have never been disappointed with how my eggs were prepared. The service has... More

The Mat Su Family Restaurant is just what it says...a good family style restaurant. Good food, with large servings, fair prices and good service. There is plenty of seating of all sorts including, booths, tables, and counter stools. There is an extra attached room for bigger groups with large tables. I would recommend this restaurant for a relaxed, family style... More

This restaurant never fails to deliver - it is by far my all time favorite chicken fried steak restaurant!! OMG WOW!!!! I really think this is the best place that makes a breakfast a feast. The chicken fried steak is cooked just right, the home fries are crispy, the sauce on my cfs was perfect, the eggs - yummmm! The... More

Come one, come all to this comfortable and clean restaurant. The food is consistently good and free from grease and the place is always in good repair. There farmer's omelette is a staple of my weekend breakfasts.

We had our morning breakfast here on the recommendation of a local. I was interested to see what we would encounter as the name did not imply American restaurant to me. We were really surprised and found we were quickly seated, the service was fast, the staff were awesome, there was a great selection to choose from, the portions were... More
