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

I expected it to be unbelievable and huge. The burgers were good but not amazing. First off its a pain in the butt to find and get to. It's in such a random location. The food was good but nothing I would crave to go to again. The food size we ordered was average. They do have a monster of... More

Given the reviews I think I expected to be blown away but the burgers were just average. We ordered burgers as well as sweet potato fries, which were quite good as well as fries which were good as well. If you're close by and hungry it's a good place to try but not one I'd go out of my way... More

I never fail to eat here when I am in town. They serve some of the best burgers money can buy. They were voted the top place to get a burger in Idaho by Travel Magazine a few years ago. They have just built a new store so everything is brand new. Great Ice Cream too!

When you are in the mood for a great burger this is the place to go. You get more then what you pay for. We usually order and pick it up from here.

My wife and I went to Big Jud's a while back based on the review on Travel Channel's #43 of the top 101 places to chow down. In it they said “Has giant, creamy centered crispy french fries and Frisbee-sized burgers!" They were right on both counts (not really the size of a Frisbee, but very large), and this was... More

Burger was really good- not some frozen slab thrown on the grill. My son got the Big Jud and only finished half. The fries were excellent. They just moved into their new building ( same location) but there was still a line. Service was friendly and not rushed.

Ate here for dinner one night and it was a good burger. Nice friendly service and very reasonable prices. Place is a bit small and dated but they are opening a brand new building right next door. Definitely stop in if you are looking for a great burger.
