My idea of travel and sightseeing is largely based on food. This is something I inherited from my family, particularly my maternal grandfather, who would meet guests at the airport with three dozen fresh bagels. He was convinced that without an immediate bagel infusion we would starve to death on the drive from the airport to his house, and I’ve never been entirely sure he was wrong.
There are many things to see and do in Fairbanks, particularly in summer when the days are endless. You can hike the trails, float the river, pick blueberries, party all night. But you can’t do any of those things on an empty stomach. So for the hungry traveler who has just arrived in Fairbanks, here are some small, local eateries that offer delicious and convenient meals.
