M.A's was my go-to place for hotdogs. M.A.'s death was a sad day for anyone who had the opportunity to try his delicious food, knowing they never can again.

Once you have tried one of Mike's reindeer dogs you will be back. The owner is a great character and he has a great (actual) dog with him. This must be one of the MUST TRY things to do in Anchorage. Highly recommended.

These are good but there's another vendor within a block (I know there are many) that is even better.

Don't understand the hype. My hotdog was average. I wouldn't rush back for another. I was a bit put off by a sign that said something like - "say hello and dont be rude and use your phone. " I said hello but didn't get...More
