1.) You don't leave the meat sitting in water to keep it moist it will lose the smokey flavor from being slow cooked in a smoker or how ever they cooked it - my first thought was they baked it and then put it in water to keep it moist since you could taste the excess water. 2.) Boxed and... More

This place has awesome BBQ. We first became a customer at Arctic Man where there mobile kitchen churned out delicious ribs. The staff was polite and informative and at no cost packed a bunch of food for us to take on the road. Great Place!

The food here is amazing. There slogan is "sauce on the side cause the meat don't hide" I love that because anything tastes good with enough BBQ sauce on it and this place wants you to taste and enjoy the meat. I've dined here over 20 times and never had even a single bad bite. My plate goes into the... More

I was a little doubtful at the gas station add on for BBQ, but was pleasantly surprised. Pulled pork was very good. Baby Back ribs were fall off the bone tender with nice flavor. Brisket was a little disappointing by comparison, but overall very nice.

Everything is delicious here. The brisket and the ribs are my favorite. Good price and excellent food!!! Best pulled pork I've had. The ribs are great, the French Fries are great. Try and make it in for BBQ fix! The ribs are mouth watering and fall off the bone! The vinegar and sweet and tangy sauce are the best and... More

We pulled up at this gas station to get gas after our long trip to Fairbanks from Anchorage, when we discovered this eatery. We could see this place getting some business especially from travelers like us looking for a quick bite. We ordered the brisket and we are sorry we did. It was tasteless and burned. The price was not... More

Just an awesome BBQ. Nice small place with good service. It's all about the food here, One of the best ribs I have ever eaten, the meat just peeled from the bone.
