We were based in Teton Village and spotted a scenic route across the Teton pass. 30 mins later we had passed the state line leaving Wyoming and entering Idaho. The first place you come to is Victor, and there we found the Brakeman grill. My only regret is not having enough room to finish my meal. I should have skipped... More

Read reviews and after a big hike in Grand Teton my hubby and I decided we deserved a burger. Probably one of the best burgers we have had and the humongous amount of handout fries were equally amazing. It was a lot of food and I would have been satisfied splitting a burger. Waitress was adorable, friendly and helpful! If... More

Great burgers! Loved the bison. Great service, good food and reasonable prices. Just be aware they charge you for the sauces they offer when they bring out your food. It's worth getting their fry sauce, just be aware it'll be on your bill.

When they say they have the best hamburgers in the world they are not lying Hamburger bacon mushrooms cheese, It really was the best I have ever had. The restaurant has a train theme show and has several pictures and information about trains from many years. They have authentic paperwork from when the trains first started in Idaho which is...

The Brakeman is an excellent stop for an amazing burgers! The old school/hipster vibe makes for a fun atmosphere for burgers and beer. The burgers are piled high with some of the best combinations of toppings. The Union burger is dripping with blue cheese and jam packed with flavor! The buns are freshly made to hold 1/2lb of ground beef!... More

We stopped in for dinner on a Tuesday night. The restaurant was full but the wait was only 10 minutes. The Brakeman is family owned and offers burgers and some salads. We shared the cranberry walnut salad with pear vinaigrette. They were nice enough to split it on two plates with no extra charge. The portion was generous and the... More

I visited here with my family and our friends who vacation in Jackson regularly. The drive to Victor was not bad at all. The staff at Brakeman's was very friendly and made sure our burger was cooked exactly to order. The burger itself was delicious, and the heap of fries made it that much better. It was clear that everyone... More

Friendly staff, good food. An excellent place for burgers, including bison burgers. You will have to wait outside if it is full.

Great hamburgers! Their meat is fresh and coarsley ground. The topping selections are numerous and very good. My one complaint is that our medium rare burgers came out medium or even medium well. They were delicious but a little overcooked. I also thought the fries were very good.

Thank Mmeyernos
