There is a reason this restaurant is #1 in Victor. There burgers are BIG and delicious! I consider myself a burger connoisseur and this ranks as the best I have ever had. Service with a smile also. If this restaurant was located in nearby Jackson it would be ranked in top ten still. Worth the scenic drive fron Jackson over... More

Alright, my wife and I just had the "honor" of eating at both the Brakeman and TripAdvisors #1 burger place, Burger and Bun in Custer, SD over the past 5 days; the winner is: The Brakeman! I had the standard Brakeman and added bacon. Piping hot, great seasoned meat, perfect bun and great fries. I was immediately satisfied after the... More

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

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
