Artic Roadrunner was started by Richard Sanchis in the mid-1960’s.  He recently passed away and one of his last wishes was to have the location on Arctic Blvd. to close.  However the location on Old Seward Hwy. would continue, so even if you can’t go to the location where we did you can still get the food.  It was a funky place with a drive-through window and indoor eating area.  It was a ‘line up and order’ and then they call your number when your food is ready for you to pick up, system.  There was a condiment bar where you could dress up what you get as you wish and I bet the system is similar at the other location.  They offer a variety of burgers, specialty sandwiches, fried foods and ice cream drinks.  No checks or credit cards were accepted.   Continue reading

Super Duper Burgers is owned by the same company that owns The Bird but this spot is way better.  It is also an approach-the-counter-and-order place but the crowd here included more variation in age groups.  There was also more seating and a better beverage selection.  Here iced tea is served in glasses not cans.  You get a buzzer to let you know when your order is ready to pick up instead of having to hear the person yell your number.  The menu includes ice cream drinks and cones as well as salads, chicken and some breakfast options if you don’t want a burger.  Most importantly, though, the burger is delicious.  Drippy, cheesy and full of beef flavor on a nice fresh, soft bun, the burger is a superior version of a standard.  The fries are crisp and taste of potato.  I would visit here again.
