Alaskans Have Spoken And This Is The Absolute Favorite Burger In The State

This iconic purple food truck in Alaska’s Capitol City has been reigning supreme since 2014. They serve up hearty portions of hot, saucy foods that you can eat without a fork in the Juneau drizzle. The acclaimed hamburgers are the star of the menu, with a smattering of other options and sensational daily specials. They were voted best burger for 2018 in the reader’s poll by the local newspaper, The Juneau Empire. They were also visited by Guy Fieri and have been listed as serving Alaska’s best burger on national rankings since their debut. They have two locations: one downtown and one out in the Valley. Wherever you find their tasty burgers, you’ll agree that it’s the best burger in Alaska.
