We passed by the Hilltop truck stop and my husband recognized it from the show Alaska Ice Truckers and we decided to get in. It is not a luxurious or fancy place but you will eat the best pies ever! I highly recommend it!

Seriously the best pie we have ever had! We ordered the Fatman and it did not disappoint! Michelle was our waitress and she was wonderful! What a great place in Fairbanks.

Visit this diner for the experience above all else and if you like American food you'll be in heaven. The portions are generous but then they are used to feeding hungry truckers who've driven famous the ice road to the north. This is authentic USA...More

One of my friends told me about this place. It is about 30 minutes drive from Fairbanks. Their homemade style desert exceeded my expectations. I loved the "butter finger", "fatman". You should try it if you are in Fairbanks.
