Not far from Airport (5 minutes) 5 minutes to St. Luke's Hospital. 8-10 minutes from State Capital building. They also have a burger that will feed a whole family for... read more

My next visit to Boise my grown children took us to Big Juds, the hamburger was a GIANT and tasted good!! Two of us shared the Big Burger, but we also took home a fair amount!! What a... More

A rather large Hamburger, weighing in at 1lb, 1lb fries ...rather too large for my gastronomic capacity, How ever a bit of fun to say one has eaten where the Big Jud Hamburger Challenge takes place..(first saw this on UK TV)..Quite a popular eatery.Only opens till 9pm, so early evening arrival gives more elbow room.

One of the best burgers I have ever had. I had the Hot Buff Burger. The service was great. Do not visit the city with stopping at Big Juds.

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
