More than I was expecting

As most truck stops go the food is adequate but not great and the service lacks sometimes. I was expecting the same here but was pleasantly surprised. As for an Alaskan truck stop it has the typical gravel lot for parking but inside was very clean. The staff was friendly and helpful and the food... read more

Anyone in the vicinity is encouraged to make a stop.at the Hilltop if you are interested in traditional truck stop food and service. Downhome and hearty portions this is a regular stop for locals in the area, truckers going either direction of the "haul road", tourists, and others. My favorite meal is always breakfast and no one will go hungry... More

I finally had the opportunity to eat at Hilltop Truck Stop. It looks just like the name says, a truck stop. Anyway, I loved the food and the pie. For my lunch, I had sausage, egg, and cheese on an English muffin. It was delicious! Good portion and cheaper than the usual Alaskan menu. For dessert, I ordered the chocolate... More

Very thin crust and full of fillings. They offer many flavors. I tried their apple pie & highly recommended.

We heard the pie was great. We were definitely not disappointed. I had the berry pie. Warm and delicious. My wife had a butterfinger pie. I think it was 5 inches tall. Yum!

Doesn't look much like a restaurant, it's the first truck stop on the Ice Highway (to Barrow), Alaska Rt 6 at milepost 5.5. A group of us stopped off for lunch and all enjoyed it. The menus items (hot & cold) read simple but what arrives isn't. What did were LARGE meat selections on a sub roll topped or mixed... More

We enjoyed a wonderful, HUGE breakfast here! The reindeer sausage was something not to be missed-spicy and delicious! A "must-try"! The home fries are fried to perfection...and the pies, THE PIES!! We ordered several pies to taste with our breakfast, and they were delicious! I recommend the 3 Berry Pie...best I've ever had out at a restaurant! Enjoy the characters... More

This place used to make omelettes that melted in your mouth. Not so much any more. But the pies are great. The potatoes are now premade where they used to be sliced and cooked with bacon and other goodies. The food is good and there is lots, just not like the olds. If you are heading out to Manely or...

While in the Fairbanks area we felt we had to stop at the Hilltop Truckstop made famous on the show Ice Road Truckers. The restaurant was clean and smoke-free. There was a separate enclosed room for those who preferred to smoke. We ordered rhubarb pie ala mode and coffee as we love rhubarb pie. We were informed they were out... More

I've stopped here on three of four trips to the area; this time I had bacon and hashbrowns, which were fine. I had originally ordered the sourdough pancakes--as much as I love sourdough bread, these pancakes were way too sour for me so they took them away (just realized I was still charged for them, though). I originally was going... More
