“Among the best burger places in Alaska”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

The Burger Queen has a lot of disadvantages - the place is rather small and not fency, the outdoor seating is right besides the street with heavy traffic, smoke is coming out of the building often due to preparing the food and the waiting time can easily exceed the 45 minutes mark. However, all that is worth the pain since the burgers are just fantastic. Home made and highly customized with fresh ingredients - they beat all burger chains easily and most of all other places that you can find in Alaska. Highly recommended !!!

“Best local burger in Alaska ”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Ok, they got their act together for 2014. Hot, juicy and just plain awesome. Onion rings are also thick and juicy. It's a heart-attack on a plate, but worth it for the occasional splurge. Cheeseburger and large rings come to $14.64. (I brought my own drink...) if they were only FASTER. The wait time cost them one star.

“Very good burger”
Reviewed July 31, 2014 via mobile

It's a real small place and very limited seating but the food was excellent. The burgers are huge so my wife and grandson had the kids burger which was perfect for them.
We ate next door at the Asylum bar which had 3.50 beers.

One thing I didn't expect was they put parmesan cheese on the onion rings. It wasn't bad but not what I would have done.

It looks like a lot of locals eat there so that is a good sign.

Prices are a little high but you are in Alaska.

We would eat here again.

“Best Burger in Town”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

Really good burgers right next to the tunnel. If you want a beer with your burger go next door to the Asylum, they will deliver there.

“Dont think we will order/eat here again”
Reviewed July 20, 2014 via mobile

We are locals even have our own business we called to ask for an order for pick up. The girl on the phone was extremely rude I suppose since they were closing up in half an hour. We were trying to order for pick up and we live a 10 minute walk 2 minute drive away. Needless to say the attitude of the girl on the phone has caused this business to loose our business not the first time the person on the phone thier made it seem as though it were an inconvenience to do thier job............ Locals......... Not the business you want to loose
