I just got back from a tour of Alaska. Since Fair Banks is considered the northern capital of the state, I made it must see. It was a good thing i did because it let me to the mecca of breakfast behemoths. Order the pancakes, I dare you. When you order a side of bacon you actually are served a... More

It's a bit out of the way and not so easy to find ( behind a car dealership ) but don't let that deter you! Come hungry as the portions are huge. The menu is quite varied so there should be something for everyone. Any breakfast or lunch sandwich you can think of is on the menu - and the... More

The food and service were good, but I did not think anything was over the top. I guess I was expecting more considering Guy Fieri's Dive's Diner's Drive-in's was there at one time. The breakfast was good, but the pie was better. It's not a place I would go out of my way for.

We stopped at the Cookie Jar for breakfast before heading down to Denali. After reading the reviews, we were looking forward to a hearty and delicious meal. Unfortunately, we just weren't impressed. I ordered the biscuits and gravy platter. The bacon was terrific, nice and crispy, but the biscuits were incredibly salty while the gravy was bland. My husband got... More

Walking into the Cookie Jar I noticed how clean it is and how friendly the folks are. Service was good and the restaurant has a friendly feeling about it. The service was good and the food arrived hot and tasty. We've been back there twice because the prices were god and the food is always good.

Went here for breakfast twice and it was very good. Had a Denver omelet with hash browns and toast. Very filling and they have a varied breakfast menu and service was pretty fast considering the crowd. They have large homemade cinnamon rolls. My husband and I asked our server for one to go and she cut it in half for... More

I used to come here all the time when I was in undergrad years ago and i loved it. I was back in Fairbanks for work so I thought I would pay a visit. I went for dinner (which I had rarely done in the past) and it was just okay. I was a little disappointed that our salads showed... More

We tried this restaurant as it had been featured on Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives. I ordered a cup of homemade mushroom soup and Reuben sandwich. My husband had chicken with pasta. Very friendly service, large portions so we ate leftovers the next day, reasonable cost, and the food was delicious. They had huge cinnamon rolls which would have been... More

This is a must try restaurant. We met someone in Anchorage who, when finding we were heading to Fairbanks, suggested we needed to try this restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their food and the service, but I think I ordered the best meal. The prime rib sandwich is just that, it is a generous slice of prime rib on toast. The meat... More

Great food and wonderful friendly service. A little pricey, but then again everything in Alaska is pricey. Once featured on Diners, Drive ins and Dives.
