My family and I ate at The Brakeman for our last dinner in Victor, and it was wonderful. I had the Union Pacific bleu cheese burger, and I can honestly say I've never had a bleu cheese burger that good! I would go back for another if it wasn't a five hour drive. My husband had the The American Shortline... More

A lot of railroad memorabilia on the walls, with zinc covered tables. Family owned and operated, with friendly service. Go for the junior burger unless you haven't eaten in 24 hours, it is a lot of delicious food.

We stopped here because we wanted to say we'd been to Idaho on our whirlwind tour of Teton/Yellowstone. While nice that they have local beers we each chose a different kind and agreed that all of them were terribly heavy on the hops. The burgers were tasty but I can't say there were to die for. Certainly they hit the... More

These are the best burgers I have eaten, bar none. The atmosphere is laid back and the personnel are amazingly friendly. I would rate this as the best burger in the US.

This is a popular spot but it was worth the wait to be seated. My teens loved their burgers and I had an excellent salad. The servings are huge - my kids could have easily split one of the 1/4 lb burgers. They appreciated being offered salads instead of the fries too. It was fun to learn something about the... More

Awesome burgers, better than I could make at home. Anytime we're in this part of the world we will be stopping in. Great environment, nice service and the burgers were cooked just the way we ordered. Everything was homemade

We've stopped in twice this week on our way to and from Idaho Falls for lunch. The Union Pacific and Yellowstone burgers were the ones we got--and split. They are both double patty burgers and more than we could have eaten alone--maybe for dinner. Lots of great fries. This is NOT a fast food lunch--prepare to wait a bit especially... More

Stopped in and picked up burgers to go. They are LARGE and yummy. They also have a kid menu with a smaller burger. Half pound burgers and fries for about $10. They even have a gluten free burger.
