Slipping back in time with a Root Beer Float!

My family and I were on the fly and had a hankering for something sweet. One of my sons spotted this old time diner along the way and so we swung on in to give them a whirl. Very friendly wait staff and the Root Beer floats were spot on! The place was filled with aromas of grilled goodness, but... read more

The onion rings on their sign caught my attention; unfortunately the ring were frozen box, not handmade. Our steak sandwich was good. The 50's decor is fun to read while waiting on your food. Service was good, she my soda glass full.

Finally, a burger, and fries joint with the perfect balance of cleanliness and comfort -- not to big or small, everything is just right! Ever had a raspberry shake? So good! glad I changed my mind from strawberry. My wife had chocolate. Compared to other places we've tried in Fairbanks, the prices are good too. The waitress was friendly and... More

We've eaten here several times. We've never been disappointed although we have heard many bad things. I love the Texas straws and I've had many sandwich options and have been pleased every time. I hear their shakes are great!

The service was friendly and our lunches were tasty (BLT, Fish Sandwich, Fries, and Onion Rings). We enjoy finding friendly diners when traveling, and C&J's hit the spot.

Sooo disappointing. I was feeling peckish so I ordered their top of the line Alaska Burger. The meat patties were wafer thin with NO flavor whatsoever. I may as well have eaten the wrapper! The bacon was transparent, dry buns with very little condiment, and the lettuce, tomato, and pickles were skimpy and wilty. Now, the fries - standard out... More

I was very disappointed in the food here! After reading some reviews and they state that it is good food, it really isn't. I got their Alaska Supreme Burger, which is the most expensive burger and it was SMALL!!! It tasted ok, but it wasn't special. It was 3 patties, bacon, and cheese on a hoagie style bun. You would...
