Excellent food served hot and fresh at the counter! Great location in Valdez. Not many food options in Valdez, so it was refreshing to find this corner hot spot across from the harbor. Had the potatohead burrito, chili cheese fries, hummus wrap, and the chugach...cheese steak and the rosemary garlic fries. Everything was awesome! I was not disappointed in any of these items. The food is ordered at the counter and made to order, so if any of the ingredients aren't your favorite, just have them make your food without that ingredient. Went back everyday that I was in Valdez. It was walking distance from just about anywhere in town. The staff is super friendly and personable. Worth the walk for sure! Next time I'm back in Valdez, I will stop by the potatohead again!More

The breakfast burritos are $10 to $14 (depending if you add meat), they were outstanding and huge (could be two meals). We have returned from our trip to Alaska and are missing these burritos. Also spudniks (fries, homemade sausage gravy, cheese) are incredible and a...great deal at $10. But be warned they can run out of these.More

Outdoor seating is available during covid. The service was OK, seemed a bit disorganized. The food was good. Basket of fries was huge. Didn't feel that the restaurant was really up to all of the hype.

My wife had the cheese steak sandwich and I had the pulled pork sandwich. She said the cheese steak sandwich was really good. The pulled pork sandwich that I had was different, not what I expected, but really good. The pulled pork is really good...and they pair it with horseradish slaw, really good pairing.More

Unique offerings in a relaxed setting. Pita wraps, burritos, breakfast wraps, and fries. You can sit inside but the picnic tables outside let you enjoy the great views. Beer and wine are available as well.

I love thin, skin-on french fries, and they do them up right - not greasy and a good amount of salt. My husband had the pulled pork po' boy and pronounced it very tasty, while my burger was a little overdone and dry, but still...very edible. Good selection of beers and reasonable prices. Friendly service.More

Looking for a solid restaurant experience? My family and I stopped at The Roadside Potatohead for dinner after a day of touring Prince William Sound. Roadside Potatohead made excellent burgers and great tasting fries that even my picky kids really enjoyed! The atmosphere was fun...& upbeat and the service was awesome! We will be going again tomorrow for breakfast.More

We stopped here for lunch our first afternoon in Valdez We both had hamburgers and a beer. Pretty basic, but really pretty good. Good enough that we stopped by a second time during our three days in Valdez. Loved the outdoor setting when we had...good weather.More

Stopped in for a quick lunch. Employees were very friendly, service good and the burger and fries was great. Worth a second visit!

Sorry for my last reply- have flu and not thinking straight- they were so helpful at the place they made mine up specially and I would think the burrito without cheese and cream would be vegan and just as tasty- it would be... More
