I stopped in here again, as I flew in to town, landed at 3:00PM, but had not eaten lunch. I ordered the Avocado Bacon Cheesburger, and asked for it to be medium / medium well, kinda pink... Well it came very well done... I was too hungry to send it back, so I ate it. I ordered a large fry... More

Good burgers with a lot of locally sourced products. Meat is from Double R ranch, which IMHO is some of the best meat to be found in the Treasure Valley. I had the Bacon Bleu burger, fries and a drink. This will cost you over $10, but well worth it. You won't go away hungry. Not sure of the size... More

This is one place to bring a big appetite, or some competitive friends! The giant burgers are amazing! The atmosphere is fun and relaxing. Just be sure to leave plenty of time, the waiting list is a little bit long.

Maybe I've gotten spoiled with the advent of gourmet burgers in my home city of Seattle. These were good, reasonably priced, lots of fries burgers. But from the reviews I expected more. Hence my mid range review. On the other hand staff was courteous, the place clean, and as I said, burgers in the "ok, it's a burger"

You know a restaurant has made it when it's featured on Man vs. Food, and you have relatives from out of town who must go there. I've gone once before and wasn't blown away, splitting a really big 1lb burger into 1/4'ers with my family unit of 4. The side of tots we ordered was huge, nobody left here hungry.... More

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.
