Random stop while driving through Boise. Food was fresh. Good size portions. Huge drinks. Prices were reasonable. Glad we came across this place!

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

Delicious burgers! I love the French fries made from real potatoes. They are not that frozen stuff. The milkshakes are made with real ice cream! Eat here and you won't want to bother with fast food burger places. My only complaint is how the restaurant has been partitioned. It seems cramped now. No big deal. I'll keep visiting Big Jud's...

I was sooo impressed the first time we visited Big Juds that I gave it an "Excellent". That was three years ago. I visited again this weekend and found they had torn down the little house they were in and moved across the parking lot to a new building that was larger and just as clean as the old tiny... More

Everyone was raving about Big Judds and I was excited to try it. To be fair, I am not a burger eater and that is what all the fuss is about. I had a grilled chicken sandwich that was very average with little flavor. I also had sweet potato fries that were a little chewy. I do not care to... More

Burgers were great as were the fries and onion rings. A bit slow to get seated but once seated service was good. Will definitely stop by again when we are in the area.
