Food was great. I got the ipa chicken and it was very tasty burgers were also great. A rare was cooked rare. Their damn good ipa was damn good. Sandwiches were about $10 so prices are reasonable also

Called to make sure their burger buns were vegan. When my wife and I arrived we found out they were not. Staff thought vegan and gluten-free were the same thing. Serving impossible burgers without vegan bread leaves out a very large share of clients.

This place was amazing. The food was delicious. I had the truffle Parmesan fries, the Fricken Good Fried Chicken sandwich, and chocolate Bailey’s shake. It was all so good and the shake had the perfect amount of booze. I recommend everyone to try this place...More

We loved the build your own burgers! There are so many selections of specialty burgers too. The sauteed mushrooms are amazing on the burgers. I also loved the blueberry soda. So good.

These were the most amazing burgers I’ve ever had. Their website was easy to use to place a order on and everything was ready in about 20 minutes. Definitely order extra “crack sauce” because it’s delicious!!

Nice location close to our hotel. They had burgers that can satisfy almost any style you wanted. You order at the counter and they bring the food out to your table which makes for a more casual feel.

When you have a ‘hankering’ for a burger, Big Buns will do. Shoestring fries and spicy burger cooked to order. The meat is flavorful but not the best around. Perfect for takeout.

Staying locally and my host recommended Big Bun. It’s a very causal place - you place your order like a fast food joint (although it’s more upmarket than McDonalds or Burger King) and it’s delivered to your table. There’s a great menu; you can build...More
