My wife and I stop at Rose's Cafe each time we have the opportunity. We've eaten at most burger joints between Fairbanks and Anchorage and this place is #1. Tasty food and outstanding customer service. Eat here!

The breakfast was generous and very good. They have homemade sourdough bread toast! I usually pass on the bread but this was too good to pass up. They have homemade salsa that is wonderful and spicy! Worth stopping by if you are in town.

Staff was friendly. Food was really good. We sat outside on the screened in porch. I really liked the chilli and it had plenty of cheese on top.

Our group of 20 had lunch there two days in a row. Good food, good service, a friendly, warm spot on a cold winter day.

We were pretty tired and hungry driving up from Kenai and this place was hopping busy! Service was great and food was excellent.

We were staying in Healy, and there aren't a lot of nearby options for dinner. We ended up at Rose's Cafe and were happy with our choice. The food was filling and tasted fine - I tried the chili and my husband had a burger and fries. It's not gourmet, but it worked great for a quick bite.

This is a great place to have breakfast, with a large list of alternatives, and a specially kind staff to help foreigners to decide. Good food and convenient location on the road from Anchorage.

Picture chili with grease floating on top. I could barely eat any of it, and it kept me up for hours afterwards. I would rather walk across burning coals than go to Rose's again. One of the worst meals I have ever eaten...
