Great burgers

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.

Simply read the reviews on Big Juds. I need not say much more, about this incredible restaurant whose theme is to overwhelm you with more food than a human should ever indulge in. Our group of six split two hamburgers, and the best frys in the world (my opinion - because they are exactly like the home cut frys my... More

My husband and I were traveling through Boise on our way home and needed to stop for lunch. We decided to try Big Jud's because of the reviews. We were not disappointed. My husband ordered the Bleu Burger while I had the Mushroom Bacon Burger. I substituted Bleu cheese for the Swiss and after one bite I could tell I... More

Order the small size of everything unless you're really hungry. A large size fry for example is really enough for 2 and 1/2 people to share. The reg soft drink size must be about 32oz !

It can get pretty busy and service can be slow, but they have great hamburgers. Wish they'd cut the french fries thinner, but they are fresh cut fries. They have an old fashioned iron port and cherry that I used to drink as a kid but too sweet for me now. There's a challenge if you're a big eater.

Where you have to eat them in 30 minutes.We chose to get their smaller burgers and the were great. We both had the bacon BBQ burgers. We had fry's and onion rings. the fry's... More

The size of burgers and sandwiches ensures that no leaves empty. The food is freshly made, including thick cut Idaho fries, and served piping hot. All burgers were generously garnished with fresh ingredients. Milkshakes are scooped and blended with the extra volume served in the metal cup. Our server was energetic and friendly, as well as helpful about meal options.... More

In fact, bring multiple appetites. You'll need them. My husband and I split the Big Jud, which is a 1-lb hand-made patty with cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo and ketchup all on a locally-made specially sized bun. We cut it in fourths; my husband ate both of his but all I could get down was one piece. We split... More

We'd been out of town for almost 2 years and we were surprised to see the new, expanded place. Had great service, a sweet, fun gal. Our burgers were out of this world yummy........and the fries were so good. Gosh, I had missed this place. Busy on a Wednesday night and the server said that on the weekend it is... More
