This is an Anchorage institution specializing in pan-fried chicken. They’ve got something like 4.5/5 stars on Google reviews. We went and tried quite a few things on their menu but I think I’d only give it 3.5/5. The most outstanding thing here were the malts.
The pop set is a 5 pc fried chicken set with fries or coleslaw and a corn muffin. The fried chicken was pretty good! The batter was well seasoned but the chicken itself was not. You can opt for all dark meat or all white meat, and of course we took the dark meat option. This is good for one big eater.
We also shared the bacon swiss burger – I would recommend going for the 1/4lb burger (I think it’s called the Jumbo Bacon Swiss), which is a lot more substantial. This was almost like a kid-sized burger.
The most disappointing thing we ordered was the Halibut sandwich. The fish was not tasty and had a rather strange texture. the tartar sauce didn’t make it more flavourful or anything, and it got progressively worse the colder it got, more so than anything else that got cold.
I’m not sure why their burgers don’t seem to come with fries at all. So we didn’t have a single fry with any of our burgers!
A little underwhelming, I’ve got to say. But I do really like their shakes and their fried chicken. It always draws a crowd, so the atmosphere here is also really nice since it’s full of locals you’d always feel like you’ve made the right decision to eat here. All of this plus tip also came up to $60, which seems a little pricey.
