Sully's Sourdough Inn

Alaska "facts" placemat popular in old time Alaska restaurants like Sully's Sourdough Inn at Mile Post 51.5 on the George Parks Hwy. While you are sitting at the table waiting for your burger you can see how big "the Great Land" is. Six states within a state according to this map.

Burger and a brew is what I went for on a menu offering breakfast at any time. $6.95,, until I realized all the patrons were paying cash. I only had my debit card with me and 3 bucks when I asked the waitress if they took cards. She said no, but there is an ATM machine in the bar. Not wanting to do the dishes or "dine and dash" I used the machine. Cost me $3.50 to get a 20 dollar bill. Paid for my food and drink plus tip. Later I checked my bank account and First National Bank of Alaska added a $2.00 transmission fee to the ATM withdrawl. Now, if I'm doing the math right this burger stop cost me $14.95.
Not worth it if you don't carry cash.
