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.

The "Brakeman" burger was huge, and very delicious. It is a great place that serves plenty of food for hungry teenagers!

After reading Trip Advisor, we left Driggs for Victor, 8 miles away, to get a burger. Our burger looked exactly like the one on the sign, too tall to wrap your mouth around. I had to remove one layer of meat/cheese and pressed down on the bun to manage a bite. Boyfriend resorted to using a fork and knife. Cooked... More

We were recommended this spot for dinner on our way back from the west entrance of Yellowstone to Jackson, WY. (South entrance was closed due to fire). The staff was very welcoming, the place was decorated very cute and the food was absolutely AMAZING! We had the cheese steak and a burger and split it. Both were dynamite and the... More

The Crazy Brakeman's the largest burger I've eaten and had everything!!! in it. Bacon, mushrooms, Jalepenos etc. In a vain attempt to stay healthy I opted for a salad rather... More

After a long day mountain biking, this place hit the spot. We were just wandering around town looking for a place to eat and saw someone eating a huge plate of burgers and fries through the window. The fries were all hand cut and burgers ground fresh.

It's a very small and cozy place. The wait staff was excellent. The Walnut cranberry salad was amazing as was the burger. Fresh Chibatta bun and fries were excellent.

Staying in the local area for a few days to see the parks, we were told not to miss this place. A great selection of burgers, but also alternatives. My teenage sons happily polished off half pound burgers and said they were the best they had had! Great friendly service at a very fair price.

Really delicious burgers, if you go hiking in the morning and have this for lunch, the size won't matter one bit! The meat itself is just really good also!
