Are you hungry? Does a cheeseburger sound like just the thing for lunch? Big Juds burgers are generously sized and they have tons of topping combinations. I've tried most of them and they're all good, but I've veered back to the delicious and simple cheeseburger with bacon. Had one today with my Daddio! Their fries are steak cut or you... More

Nice 1/3 lb burger, big steak fries (more than enough for 2 people); onion rings are solid. All cooked to order. They don't add salt to the fries and onion rings - which is good so you add your own. Service is friendly and spot on. Lot's of burger options / toppings - some large 1 and 2 lb burgers.... More

You haven't lived til you've eaten at Big Judd's and had their delicious burgers and humongous homemade French fries with fry sauce! Hand molded patties with top ground beef served on a delicious bun. The fries are fresh cut and to die for. The shakes are a must as well! It's been our favorite burger joint for the past 14...

I've been coming to Big Juds for years. If you are with a few friends go for the Big Juds burger and split it up. Our recent visit was on a Groupon so it was a great deal. Just their plain cheese burger is big. A large tot or fry is enough for two. If you order water only they... More

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"

Thank DoryGuy
