This is the best place in the world for your burgers. I'm not a burger eater, but every time we make it up to this side of the world we come here for one of their burgers. My daughter married and moved here in 1995 but moved so I was afraid our days were over. Now my granddaughter is attending... More

Great meal with a super friendly server. Very generous portions. Couldn't believe they didn't have American cheese, but it was my first trip to Idaho.

This was on mans vs food for the SIZE OF THE BURGERS. Want a full tummy? GREAT TO FILL THE VOID! They even got the special sauce for the fries, which come in fat or skinny!

When traveling through Boise we wanted to stop and try their burgers. I had seen this place on man vs food. I went with the Super Bacon Burger, sure was big. I can say it was a very good burger. The fries were also good. This place is worth you time. Service was good and prices about what you might... More

Adam Richman's TV show visited here and made a favorable impression on me. I had a bacon-bleu cheese burger with onion rings. Both were excellent but a few of the rings were the fried outer, semi-dried layer of the onion. Overall, a fine experience in a friendly atmosphere,

Yes, they will make any of their burgers without a bun at Big Juds. I had the bleu cheese burger on lettuce and the green leaf lettuce was just right to be able to pick up and eat the burger without a bun. I loved it. The bacon was crisp and crunchy and with all of the trimmings it was... More

I heard alot about this place so I decided to give it a try. My party had: Two veggie burgers (I think the Mushroom Burger but with a veggie patty), I had a Hot Buff burger, and some tots. The veggie burgers were pretty darn good with all the fixin's and my Hot Buff burger was decent as well. The... More

Asked some local colleagues for a good restaurant unique to Boise. They both recommended Big Judd's without hesitation. It was featured on Man v. Food with Adam Rich. Did not have the courage to attempt the Big Judd or Double Big Judd challenge, but split the 1 pound Big Judd with a coworker all the same. It was suprisingly good... More
