“Best burger in Kenai!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Tucked away behind the visitor center is the best burger joint in Kenai or Soldotna. During lunch the wait can be long but well worth it. Good old fashion burger and fry joint. Nothing on the menu has ever disappointed.

“The best!”
Reviewed July 20, 2012

Don't miss this place when you're in Kenai! Great burgers and fries. We accidently discovered it after walking out of another nearby restaurant due to poor service. Boy, were we glad. Took our burgers and went to a nearby park to eat them by the ocean.

“Best burger on the penninsula”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

You have to try this place. It's a little hard to find, and there will most likely be a wait if you get there right at lunch time, but it's well worth it! Large portions and good fries too. The owner is super friendly - what's not to like?

“Best fast food in Kenai!”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

This is a favorite with the locals. The food is always delicious & the lady who always hands it out to you, ALWAYS has a smile and a cheerful greeting. She knows the regulars by their names. This location is tucked away, on a back street, so it is difficult for new customers to find. I was taken there my first time by a person who lives here. I had trouble finding it on my own the next several times I returned. The setting may not be of 5 star restaurant quality..in fact, it may frighten the fastidious ones. It is after all, just what the name suggests: a bus converted into a kitchen...but! the food is wonderful fast food..try their fresh halibut burger..and their prices are fair. My favorite story about this place: a couple of years ago, the seafood gumbo soup was on the posted menu. I tried it once and found it to be WONDERFUL! So, I was looking forward to my second bowl on the next trip to the Burger Bus. The smiling lady told me she was so sorry but they had to take it off the menu: they could no longer make it for a price that customers would want to pay & they would not compromise the quality of the gumbo. Try this place; you will like it!
