Now that's a tasty burger!

Really, what a great burger joint this was, the food was fresh off the grill and super tasty. Don't order more than one small basket of anything on the side per two people because it will go to waste, it was large! The service was good, a bit slow but the day we went the place was slammed with... read more

Took three generations of family here and everyone loved it. Got the HUGE one pound burger and split it. It was juicy and hot. Personable waitstaff. We had a blast!

This place is a must-go because of their challenge - it is fun to see those huge burgers coming to people trying to eat them with their combo. But if you are looking for a place for a good meal, it wouldn't be my first suggestion. More expensive than other restaurants in town that have better quality. But if you... More

Excellent old fashioned plenty of meat and fixins. Most friendly staff eager to make your visit the best. Have not tasted anything that was not good and milkshakes too! Prices are good because you get lots of food, you will be full 😀.

We had driven by several times. We have friends that have gone there. But since it is across the valley from where we live... it took a trip to the Boise VA to stop by on a Wednesday at lunch time. In fact we waited in the parking lot for 15 minutes until they opened at 11:00am. We knew NOT... More

Welcome to Bronco Nation! These different burger bot regular size and a HUGE 2 pounder, will satisfy most appetites. Get a burger for 1 or for 6. Your choice! They are good burgers with that "old fashion" feel! Polished stainless table tops. Local wall decorations and proud of the Boise State Broncos! It shows. Take-out is available and the kids... More

Do Idahoan's have a warped sense of what constitutes a really delicious burger? Big Dud's served me a very, very dry flavorless sandwich with soggy French fries. Amazing when I consider I'm visiting the great potato state. I had my burger with pastrami. Big mistake, the pastrami was right out of a package. You people need to head south to... More

Be warned: A regular single patty is 1/3rd of a pound and that's a LOT bigger than what you would get at an average fast food joint. Had the Cheeseburger single patty with Bacon and our son had Reuben Burger and we shared a large fries. Fries are like Dick's fries in Seattle giant-sized. Fresh potato fries, not real crispy...

I have eaten at Big Juds many times with scouts and young men in a church group. They have a huge burger that you get free if you eat it in the allotted time. So far I have never been with any group where anyone could eat this honker. It comes with a massive amount of fries. The food is... More
