Big Jud's has expanded their seating capacity and the facility appears new. Their menu has also expanded but they continue to offer good food at a reasonable price. Of course they are known for their burgers and rightly so. However, I personally recommend their finger steaks. Portions tend to be larger than we would normally order but there is always... More

If your man has a huge appetite when it comes to burgers, you won't be disappointed here. They serve a burger that is huge, that even a man with a huge appetite can't eat all of it. I myself ordered the regular size Hickory burger and thought no way would I eat all of that, but it was sooooo good... More

Big Judds is a local favorite. They serve great hamburgers, and can satisfy any appetite. Their fires and tater tots are very good, and the portions are big enough for two people. It is a must place to eat in Boise.

Big Juds is a great, iconic burger joint in Boise. The meat is very good quality, the buns are fresh, the taste is fantastic, and the service is heartfelt. I've tried 3-4 burger places in Boise and this place is the best so far. The prices are quite reasonable and you will want to come back.

On a quick visit to Big Juds I ordered a Hickory Burger. It was classic! Fresh toasted bun, barbecue sauce, onion rings, bacon--hmmm. It was piping hot, a perfect burger, one of the best that I have had in some time. Another time we will have to talk about the 2 pounder!

We had heard great things about this place. It is way over rated. We had to wait way too long just for a burger. They were alright, nothing special and for sure not worth how much they charge. We are only here for the weekend so I felt like it was a waste of one of the meals we get... More

The burgers were huge, delicious, and hot when served. My wife had a regular jalapeno burger, I had a double mushroom-bacon burger and we shared an order of tots.... sadly, too full for desert. And the bill was under $25 for both of us! Definitely a do over!

Say hello to your tastebuds, but kiss portion control goodbye when you walk in the door to Big Jud's. "Health conscious" only applies to you if you're still coherent after overdosing on an enormous burger. Fresh juicy toppings, thick slabs of bacon (yes, on the burgers), and hefty fries the size of Lincoln Logs make this place a stumblingblock for... More

Very friendly and really good eats. I picked up a jalapeño burger and tots to go and it was wonderful with fresh jalapeños and some fry sauce for the tots. Great milkshake too!

I enjoy a good burger and every place I travel to I try and find a local burger place. I have to tell you this burger makes my top 10 list, and that is hard to do after all the burgers I have eaten. The meat was freshly ground, the condiments and veggies well matched and the french fries were... More
