Delicious burgers and the best fries from Idaho potatoes! Victor is a quaint western town on the west side of Yellowstone.

Coming from the Tetons we put all our hopes into finding a dinner spot in Victor. We found the Brakeman, pulled over, opened the door, and we were sold. It smelled so good and fresh. Everyone loved the fries. Fresh cut fried goodness. The burgers were also perfect. Best stop of our trip.

Best cheese steak I've had outside of Philadelphia! Oh, and the fries were top notch, too! If you go through Victor, this is a MUST for lunch!

I travel a lot and look for local places with good fresh food! This place is amazing and worth the stop! As their bumper sticker states "Best burger in Jackson? Brakeman Grill, Victor ID".

Nice local burger place, big burgers with real flavor. The fries are fresh real Idaho potatoes - so much better than fast-food fries. Generous portions. Interesting old photos and local memorabilia on the walls.

The Brakeman Burger is so huge I couldn't get my mouth around it! It had all the right toppings and condiments to make it yummy delicious. The fries are cut thin so their very crisp and hot. The menu says "We're not fast, but we're good." It's very true. Bring something to do while you wait. It's really worth the... More

Small restaurant in Victor Idaho with great food. Don't miss their delicious hamburgers that are so big you have to stretch your mouth to take a bite, but oh so good! Plate is piled high with fries to go with your burger!

Busy gourmet burger joint that stays busy. We volunteered to share table to lessen wait. Quarter and half pound burgers cooked the way you like 'em. Served with a mountain of fries.
