They made some of the best burgers, I really enjoyed the Elk burger. The burgers they made were big and juicy. I would recommend this place

If you're looking for a light option, you may want to steer clear, but if a burger is what you're craving, you will not be disappointed. Tons of different options, and boy are they tremendous. Stop by The Emporium for a shake afterwards, and you'll be in heaven

The trip to Victor from the Tetons is always worth it, the pass is lovely and Victor is charming. This was the first time I'd eaten at the Brakeman, we went because we knew they had gluten free buns and my friend was ecstatic. The burgers were yummy, the décor lovely and the beer selection was great. It's small, we... More

My 14 and 11 year old wish they could eat here weekly. They loved the burgers and fries. The fries were our favorite part...thin, fresh, salted well...delicious! All their burgers have interesting toppings, but our favorites were the BB-Q cheeseburgers with thick bacon.

It is all about the Jr. Breakman with fries and 2 fry sauces. The staff is great and Joe the owner and chef hand grinds and packs his burgers daily. Go at. 11:50 to beat the rush or wait until 1:30

a nice ride and a good meal. Not cheap at $15 bucks a burger. There were 15 of us so we ordered all over the menu . The conclusion? The fries are excellent. The burgers are good but not mind blowing . The meat is of the best quality, I got the yellowstone burger it was ok cheddar not sharp... More

I'm not as enthusiastic about burgers as a lot of people seem to be these days, but I'll make an exception for The Brakeman. If you like a variety of interesting things on your burger, they do that. If you want a plain burger, they'll do that too. Whichever you choose, it will be either big or gigantic - and... More

Great food and service. Small restaurant so expect a wait if you're not eating on the early side at dinner. Don't know about lunch.

My daughter and I shared a burger and it was still quite enough. Even though we shared the meal, we were brought full orders of fries on our plates. We had the mushroom Swiss burger and my husband the blue cheese burger. My daughter only eats hamburgers cooked at home and she said it was the best hamburger she's ever... More
