“Needs cleaned and updated.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 February 2014

What I expected when I saw the R&W's sign on a quaint log cabin was that the inside would be cozy and comfortable. Instead I was greeted by unclean fluorescent lighting and a cluster of junk memorabilia. R&W is clustered with junk thrift/garage seating that is worn and old which goes hand in hand with the food which seems to have been purchased generically and thrown to the bottom of the freezer for a year or two and then rediscovered only to end up on my plate. The place has potential if the owner's focus on what is important "the inside" and "quality food."

“Awesome burgers, great prices & good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 October 2013 via mobile

We were on our way through Palmer and looking for more than an industrial fast food burger. Found R W's Hamburger House a mile down the Palmer-Wasilla Road. This is a gem in really good burgers and fries for the same price as the big name 'M' place down the road. Service was good and burgers big, juicy and full of fresh ingredients. Looks like R W's is now our families favorite stop when traveling through Palmer from now on.

“Eat like a Local”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2013

If you are from out of town and want to experience a true to alaska local treasure, eat here! Yes it's greasy, cheap burgers, but they are delicious and have been around for a long time. This is my favorite burger joint I've been to so far! My friends and I love it.

“Good food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

Food taste good, but I don't recommend eating there if you have issues with the smell of grease every where on you, included in your hair. So if you order there have the food delivered.

“Delicious Greasy Burgers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2013

If you need a nice greasy burger, there is no better place to go. Their fries are also good, and prices are very reasonable and service is fast. Make sure to check out their delivery service.
