Great hamburger with wonderful fries. Best Dr Pepper in Town Hand Scooped Milk Shakes Drag Racing Trophy and decor Pinic tables outside in summer you can still sit at them in winter but you may have to brush snow off seat and table.

This is my favorite place to go when I'm craving a big, juicy burger and some really good fries. They have other types of sandwiches, both hot and cold, but I love their hamburgers. It's not a fancy place, very rustic, but good food.

Good old fashioned greasy spoon food. It is made fresh with plenty of grease. Most everything is fried. Nice nostalgic meal every once in a while.

This review is for the second location in Wasilla. The burger was big but bland. The fries were so limp and under-cooked they bent in half on the way to my mouth! The cash and carry system does not lend itself to one dropping in at any point - i don't carry cash. The only thing I can say on... More

Old time alaska place... Old log cabin not fine dining but it's not supposed to be ... Great burgers and fries... Exactly how they should be.

I have been going by this place for over a year now and decided to give it a try. The staff was friendly, service fast . The food (I had a cheeseburger-n- fries) was good. I would stop in again, it was pretty much what you want in a local burger place.Keep up the good work!

I do not Carrie Cash on me, but they do have an ATM inside. Burger was ok at best. Just like the other Burger Places. Nothing Special here...

First trip to Red Robin and our hamburgers were delicious. Wish RW was closer to home in the lower 48. The staff was pleasant and the service quick.
