This place just changed ownership. Now called Michael Joe's Cafe. Had good biskets and gravy and the owner was very friendly. Only serving breakfast and lunch with appetizers for next door bar.

Great restaurant offering some good burgers with an Alaskan Flair. Unfortunately for those in Fairbanks, the restaurant is supposedly moving south in 2016.

You have to be a neat eater to eat here. If you are, they have an interesting menu and good food. The prices are reasonable and the service is fast and informal.
