Anchorage Restaurants

Arctic Roadrunner

Updated 08/19/2014

Fodor's Review

The no-frills decor is mostly 1950s Formica, but if you prefer made-to-order burgers to industrial fast food then this is the place for you. Eat in or drive through at the Arctic Boulevard location and head to nearby Valley of the Moon Park for a sack lunch with the kids. Ultrathick milk shakes and crunchy onion rings are also on everybody's list of favorites. The South Anchorage location (5300 Old Seward Hwy.) has an outdoor deck on Campbell Creek, and in midsummer you

can watch spawning salmon swim past.

Ok, for a quick bite, but nothing special. There are so many better choices in the area. I ate there for lunch, it may do better as a bar/pick-up night spot.

One of the best

I am writing this review for the Old Seward and International location ... downtown is okay but the experience does not compare in any way. It is just like stepping into an old burger restaurant from the 1950's ... the walls are covered in history of AK. My favorite time to go is during the summer. You can eat outside if you want... there is a cute little creek that runs by and it is just a good old alaskan time. Their burgers are very tasty and

VERY large you you must bring an appetite. Now even though I love the burgers here I have discovered one place in town that makes the BEST burger in town, the atmosphere isn't as fun but if you want the best you should definitely try the Burger Stop. The Arctic Road Runner is a definite must though.

I'm "Running" Back

Although I am fond of the burgers at the Lucky Wishbone, Roadrunners has them beat by far. I grew up frequenting Roadrunners and have always loved the unique atmosphere at the Old Seward and International location. There is no comparision to any other "local" burger joints and to even mention Arctic Roadrunners in the same sentance as McDonalds is a sin...
