Old-fashioned lunch counter, great burgers

The White Spot has been in Anchorage forever, and it's still great. Every burger comes with fries, which is nice, because their fries are incredible. The burgers are made fresh, and if you order a bacon burger (my usual fare), they fry the bacon fresh, so it's hot and crispy. We used to enjoy the... read more

Regular user when stationed over here 2006-9 and revisited when back on vacation. Just as good as I remembered. This place is not fine dining but is good value, honest diner food that will keep you fuelled for hours. I've travelled all over the world. This place serves my favourite breakfast of anywhere I've been...

I've been here for 6 years and have always wanted to try the White Spot. My husband and I went in one morning and after we left, we decided that we will never come back. The food was decent, place was clean but we felt like the server was not happy about serving us, I think she had a problem... More

What a perfect Anchorage atmosphere! The halibut is to die for. Service was like throw-back to the 70s. Verbal bills and cash only. Best lunch in Anchorage!

One of the best Halibut Sandwiches that I have ever had. Service is not the best but the food is great.

The White Spot is for locals. It's a small, old diner with a lot of formica and a big grill. The locals come to get their cup of coffee and shoot the doodoo. The cook is slightly grumpy but he'll make you a heck of a breakfast that's an outstanding value if compared with prices throughout summer Anchorage. My favorite... More

Ok sounds pretty dumb, but we live here and have never made it down to the white spot. Stopped in for breakfast yesterday and I'll be back. Great biscuits and gravy, pepper, sausage bits and nice biscuits, not hockey pucks. The bacon was cooked to order and pretty good. I had a blueberry pancake, delicious, and thick and fluffy. Very...

If you love seriously local food,nothing cutesy or fancy,just a really good breakfast,this is the place for you! Best mushroom omelet I have EVER had! Best pancake ever! Yes,a single pancake that TOTALY covered my entire plate. I would honestly go all the way from Chicago back to Anchorage just to have breakfast there again. Don't miss this one!

Okay, this is not a 5-star place. More like 2 or 3 at best. But the fish sandwich is out of this world and I wanted to draw attention to it with 5 stars. It was recommended by a friend who visited many years ago. I am in his debt. The fried halibut sandwich is truly a thing a of... More
