“Best finger steaks in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I always stop at Big Bun when I visit Boise and get finger steaks. Their hand dipped finger steaks are the best.

“Great family food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013

Great hamburger and ice cream place. They make amazing milk shakes and fountain drinks. The food is always good and there is a nice variety. Not just another fast food chain.

“not the old big bun”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

They area little over two blocks from my office but I seldom eat there anymore the food is just not the same. The one thing they kept was the shredded lettuce that falls out with some of the ketchup and gets on your clothes. I can't quite understand why they changed a formula that worked for years. The ingredients on the burgers is sub par from the old days. They are always running specials, if they just offered the same good food they would not have to try to lure people in.

“Worst Chicken Caesar Salad in Idaho”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Stopped by today for an old favorite, the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad, I admit I haven't had one for a year or more, and I was shocked to receive a Caesar Salad with shredded Iceberg lettuce and tomatos! The chicken was cold, the lettuce was completely wrong and really, tomato on a caesar salad?!!? Another old time Boise memory ruined by an owner who can't be bothered to find out how to make something as simple as a caesar salad. The Big Bun reputation has been tarnished and I won't drive across town again for another disappointment like I had today. We miss you Tom!
PS this sad little salad was accompanied by the most sickeningly sweet limeade I've ever been served and it was immediately disposed of in a trash can.

“Good old fashioned burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The Big Bun has been around for many many years and is a favorite place to get good old fashioned burgers. They also have really good milkshakes along with various sodas to choose from. The food is always good here.
