We had two fantastic sandwiches before our tour of the mine. We had limited time, so we appreciated that we could order and eat a meal without rushing, and it's hard to beat the view looking out over the glaciers with the mountains in the...background. Great local flavor!More

The meatza wagon was highly recommended by everyone we spoke to in McCarthy so we didn’t hesitate to try it when we finished a morning hiking up in Kennicott. I had the pulled pork but on salad, my husband had the meatball sub. Good portions,...super fresh and very tasty. Would def recommend! And the view over the glacier makes it a pretty spectacular setting.More

Who would have thought some of the best food in Alaska would be found in a food truck at the Kennicott mine? You can smell the food as you tour the grounds. We ordered the squash panini and the 3 little piggies sandwich. Both were...outstanding. Besides that the views of the mountains can't be beat. Stop here for lunch!More

Ate here twice while at Kennicott. Food was good and the services were great. They were a bit slow, but for the quality of food didn't mine.

For the only choice in Kennicott the food truck definitely takes pride in their product, presentation and quality! The food choices are varied, including vegan, veg and/or other beside CARNIVOR (which I fall in) We had lunch and it was 3 different appetites with 3...different orders that were shared. Each selection of pita, sandwhich, salad bowl was delicious and not just haphazardly prepped and thrown out. The pasta salad is a killer taste!More

On the advice of our Anchorage neighbor who splits his time between Anchorage and McCarthy, we hit up the Meatza Wagon for meatball subs. Oh my goodness I'm still dreaming about that sandwich. So delicious--perfectly spiced, great texture, excellent ratio of meat to sauce to...cheese to bread. Highly recommend! and they have a great menu of vegetarian and pescatarian options as well--husband had fish tacos and they did not disappoint. Go!More

After a long day of ice climbing, this really hit the spot. It's a permanent food truck with solid food at a decent price.

We ate lunch at the Meatza Wagon on our first day in Kennicott. It was one of the best meals of our trip! We had the Salmon Cakes and the Three Little Pigs sandwich, both of which were excellent. Sitting at the picnic tables overlooking...the Kennicott Glacier was a stunning setting and the prices seemed very fair considering the remote location. Highly recommended!More
