The only place amongst all that I have been to which serve the caribou burger which is quite nice. Simple and filled with mostly locals, they offer a $4 pint which is a really good deal. The staff are friendly and service is quick.

I had the stubb's burger. It was delicious. The size was cool. I ate the in honor of Stubb's. Stubb's was the mayor of Talkeetna. He was a beautiful cat that lived a wonderful life thanks to his earth angels who took care of him.

The West Rib has great food, especially delicious 1/2 lb burgers with beer batter fries at excellent prices. It should have been a 5 star, but only gets three from me. Why? The bar seating area reeked of stale beer and the tables felt grubby....More

Great gourmet burgers on a budget! Don't miss the bread pudding! Talkeetna shops may close at 6:00 pm but they are open late!
