“Interesting menu”
Reviewed July 21, 2014

Went to Loose Moose to try some local foods not available in our area. The menu was interesting - caribou, reindeer, etc. The food was OK, not great by any means, but it was a pleasant experience, food was unique, and the staff was very friendly. If in Fairbanks, it's an opportunity to eat out of the ordinary; give it a try.

“Loved my Burger”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

We had a bit of trouble finding this place, but glad we did. Enjoyed our burgers & fries. The people were so friendly & were glad to help us figure out what to order. I had the Signature Burger which is buffalo, beef & pork. Along with sweet potato fries. Yummy! Take the time to find this place. You'll be glad you did.

“Yum! ”
Reviewed June 15, 2014 via mobile

Great food and friendly staff. Clean little spot near the airport. It's busy too so you know the food is fresh. Cute shirts to purchase during your visit.

“Excellent meat lovers options here”
Reviewed June 1, 2014 via mobile

I had the daily special which is a buffalo burger with cheese and a side of your choice. I went with sweet potato fries. This was a very tasty burger and I'm looking forward to hitting this place once or twice more before I leave Fairbanks.

This place should have a higher rating on Trip Advisor than it currently does.

If you are a meat eater and have a curiosity to taste caribou meat, buffalo or dear sausages, this is a place to stop when in Fairbanks.

“Great food makes up for atmosphere.”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

While this is not necessarily atmospheric, the food was great and the service was as well. I had never had Caribu sausage before, but they definitely prepared it well. It was a little pricey, but so is every other place in Alaska.
