Was in the Asylum next door and ordered fish and chips, they were delicious and a decent size portion. Another time we ordered the halibut burger, REALLY good. Great combination, good beer at the Asylum and good food from Burger Queen.

This Little Gem has Awesome Burgers, it is a Small place and you may have to wait for a place to sit. I take my Orders to go and eat on the Water Front just across the Street. They have really good Shakes too. I Say Yes to Burger Queen!

A local friend took us there and we had a hamburger that was out of this world. It was big and juicy. We also got fries and ate out in our car. If you are hungry for a good burger, this would be the place to visit.

The location of the venue is very convenient, on the main road. Unfortunately, this makes it very noisy with all the traffic passing by. To eat on the open terrace is to inhale the exhaust gases and fumes. On the other hand the food is excellent. Not too long to wait on the order although it is a very popular... More

Came here to celebrate our last night in town. Was here for SE Environmental Conference and this was so worth dealing with the weather. People Deal with the Rain to Check this Burger out. Also just FYI I am sitting at The Asylum, they will deliver it next door so u can enjoy a adult beverage with this

Just across the road from Sockeye Sam's and the burger was very nice, after the wait. It was great to support a local business.

Fun, small place. But not to worry if you cannot get a table at this little burger joint, they will deliver your food to one of the local bars. That was fun, because we all know Beer goes with Burgers, right? Staff was hardworking and super friendly. Also accommodating as we want to pay 4 different tabs, but they made... More

We heard about this place through Trip Advisor prior to sailing to Alaska. It was first on our list to eat after a long day of sight seeing. The building is pretty unassuming so don't let that deter you. The food is great. The service suffered a bit because two staff members had not shown up to work on our... More

After reading all the good reviews, I have to say my visit was NOT GOOD. I ordered the halibut fish and chips. The breading on the halibut was heavy, with a lot of absorbed grease and completely obliterated the delicate taste of the halibut. I want to stress the halibut was breaded, not battered, which makes a big difference.

My husband and I went to check out Arctic Bar. They work in cahoots with Burger Queen since they have no food on premises. Really good burgers, fries and onion rings. Prompt and courteous service.
