Granny B’s : 1201 W Tudor Rd, Anchorage

“Chicken Fried Steak”.  Three words that, strung together, meant absolutely nothing to me before moving to the States.  Read “chicken-fried” as the modifier here and you get a beef steak that has been crumbed and fried (think southern fried chicken), usually served with eggs and gravy….eaten for breakfast.  At Granny B’s, it gets even better, with a blanket of Granny’s country-style gravy and crispy hashbrowns.  Plus a side of pancakes.

Head to this hole-in-the-wall eatery off Tudor Rd and it’s just like visiting grandma’s.  Every inch of this tiny space is covered with knick-knacks, from old photographs and vintage Alaskana to Iditarod memorabilia and an impressive collection of souvenir mugs.  No room for all the plush toys? No problem, just hang them from the roof in between the snow shoes and flags.  And, just like at grandma’s, expect there to be no shortage of food.

Lunch is burgers and french fries (cheese, jalapeno and chili burgers, extra patty optional) and the full shebang of cheesy, triple decker and malibu (read : deep fried) chicken sandwiches, also with fries, along with salads and soups.  When we’re talking bacon cheeseburger salads though, might as well get a burger.

But breakfast is where the real fun is.  Fuel up on fatly filled omelets and fry-ups, and if pancakes on the side don’t cut it, there’s a triple stacked pancake, egg and bacon sandwich.  A daily specials board of Granny’s country style breakfast favorites delivers your steak, buttery biscuits and eggs benedict, all with that meaty, sausage gravy, which is a surprisingly tasty alternative to the standard hollandaise.

Pop in on the weekend for blueberry pancakes; Granny’s fluffy griddled cakes, generously studded with sweet, juicy berries, served with crispy bacon strips and reindeer sausage, but perfect just with sweet syrup, maybe some whipped cream.  You can also trade your side of pancakes for blueberry goodness if you really can’t pass up that chicken-fried steak.
