Little Richard's Family Diner

Reviewed By Steve E - Boise, Idaho

We visited North Pole, Alaska recently and had breakfast at Little Richard's. The atmosphere reminded me of diners in the 1950s. There is nothing fancy here, but the breakfast was very good! The 4 of us tried 4 different dishes, and each of us was delighted with the quality of the food and service. The people there are super friendly. We watched them working hard the entire time we were seated there.

If you want a wonderful breakfast in North Pole, AK, this is the place I recommend!

These ladies are incredible. I was in North Pole for 2 weeks and stopped daily for 2 very different coffees. By day 2 they remembered both orders. They are genuinely interested in why I was visiting and are super nice people. The coffee is exceptional and always nice and hot.

Pagoda Restaurant

Reviewed By Tinnesz - Jacksonville, Florida

We have eaten in the restaurant but this time decided on delivery. They were quick, teh food was hot, and it was delicious! Huge portions that lasted us three meals. Delivery only on dinner, but dinner is so big you can't eat it all. We ordered a variety, Kung Pau, Sesame, Mongolian Beef, soups, fried rice, egg rolls, etc. Everything was fresh and delicious. They drove through the ice and snow to bring it, too.

Country Cafe

Reviewed By moofcdt - Anchorage, Alaska

This was our first trip to this restaurant in the heart of North Pole, AK. The staff greeted us warmly and seated us immediately. The walls are painted with Alaskana to create a warm, homey, cabin atmosphere. The cafe felt fresh and well-cared for. I ordered a veggie omelette sans hashbrowns (they kindly substituted fresh tomato slices). The omelette came fluffy and cooked to perfection with sauteed bell pepper, mushroom and onions inside. My husband ordered his breakfast standard - cheese omelette, hashbrowns, an English muffin, and a side of reindeer sausage. He is usually hard to please when it comes to hash browns but he had no complaints about the hashbrowns or any other part of this breakfast! His omelette and reindeer sausage were cooked just the way he likes them. We look forward to our next breakfast at North Pole's Country Cafe.

Thai Cuisine Restaurant

Reviewed By Mike B - Beavercreek, Ohio

Not sure what to expect, for a Thai restaurant in Alaska. I ordered a curry dish that was to die for. The beef melted in your mouth. I ordered the "hot" and it was the perfect blend of spices.

Wish I had ordered a second helping
... it was that good.

Highly recommend.

Outlaw Tamales

Authentic, fresh & homemade tamales made in the heart of North Pole Alaska. Santa tested and approved!

Reviewed By Go2FunFood

Great tamales made and served by the owner. The tamale lady is delightful. Check her Facebook page for current updates on what's available and what's sold out. We had the pork with the homemade salsa verde. They were warm and tasty. Everyone in our group enjoyed them. There is no seating inside or out. Drive up or walk up tamales only. A must.

North Pole Crepery

Reviewed By CxxxWxxx - Fairbanks, Alaska

Venus and Benny just opened this place recently. Mainly a crepe place, I go there for the best espresso in the Fairbanks region. Most 'fancy' cafes in town serve awful espresso - so sour you can't drink it. Venus pulls perfect black gold every time: fat, rich, smooth with just enough bite (she's from Europe and knows how an espresso should be!). The crepes are excellent too - a wide variety and freshly made then and there.

We were going through a tough time with a death in the family and didn't want to go out. Several nights we ordered pizza, and they were excellent. Delivered them fast, hot, delicious, it was a treat and we loved each pizza we ordered. Supreme, Pepperoni, Sausage, and more.

Service was great food was up to corporate standard's. I would have give them a 4 or 5 but when we sat down the person (girl) tall young, working the drive through went over to the boy who took our order and treated him poorly. Talked down to him and took him off the register. It was loud and very very unprofessional. Today 5-25-17 at noon.
