Really fantastic. Huge burgers, but it's not the size that makes them special -- they are truly delicious. Nice atmosphere and pleasant service. Served with mountains of the best fries. Ask about the pig-in-a-barrel contest. Seriously. If you can't bring yourself to ask, check out the pictures of it on the wall to the restrooms.

We stopped here because I was too hungry to wait until Jackson. Yelp gave strong reviews and I would also recommend. Very good burger, but they also have sandwiches and salads. Small dining area so get there early, there was a line waiting when we left. Also prices are reasonable, $10 for burger and fries vs $15-20 in Jackson.

This restaurant has the best hamburger ever! On a week long trip in idaho. The bad thing about this restaurant is that every other hamburger since has tasted like cardboard. Once you eat here you will become a hamburger snob. Don't miss this resturant.

We were driving from Wyoming to Montana and just happened to stop in Victor Idaho to eat and The Brakeman American Grill was quite the find. It was seriously the best Turkey Burger I have ever had and coming from the Metropolitan area, I think I know good food. The hand cut Idaho potato fries were delicious and were so... More

As the sign says it is not fast food it is good food made as fast as they can. We stopped for lunch after a horse ride and we were very pleased by the food. The fries might be the best I have had. The burgers are huge and we ended up splitting the burgers between 2 of us and... More

My husband and I heard of Brakeman's from a few locals while visiting Victor, so we had to stop in for lunch on the 4th of July - there's nothing more American than a juicy cheeseburger! The freshly ground burger meat was super flavorful and perfectly seasoned. I haven't had a burger whose meat tasted SO good in a really... More

Burger was over cooked and dry. Needed seasoning. Fries were not hot. For the price you can find better.

Wide variety of Hamburgers and sandwiches, all looked very good. Fast, friendly service, large meals and reasonable prices. I fed 6 adults for just over $100
