This is a great fast food stop. They have a wonderful sandwich called a Hot Russian (a hamburger with horseradish sauce). We have enjoyed this stop for many years. Always tasty and quick.

A regular spot when I am craving a heavy meal. My usual order is the finger steak dinner. I have never had better finger steaks!

We have been searching Boise for the best burger and we found it. We ordered the guacamole burger....and it was fantastic. Yes we have tried may other places and they were alright, but this is the best we found so far. Don't worry, we have several other places to try and we will. :)

After years of driving by, we decided to give it a try. The service was not good. We had to repeat out order several times and then when it was finally done we had to remind them of our entire order because they only gave us part of it. The food was unbelievably bland. Not seasoned and pretty much flavorless.... More

We have been in Idaho for a month and still had not tried steak fingers, so when we drove by this place we decided to try it. The ordering process is slow, but it seems that they are cooking to order, so don't think of this place as fast food. We ordered a steak finger dinner, a chicken fried steak... More

This was my first time trying Big Bun. I ordered the fish sandwich and fries. The good: the server was friendly and tidy, a good start. The prices are about average, the sandwich was $4.99, the fries $1.89. The not so good: it's a challenging location, Overland has become very busy so plan your approach carefully so you don't get...

We stopped in before hitting the movies. And plus it was my first time, my husband had been here before. The food was great, service was good. My only problem is when we ordered our food, we got drinks but no fries or tots. Which was weird to me. Most places you say I want "cheeseburger with a medium drink"... More

I heard big bun "invented" finger steaks which everyone in Boise now makes. I tried the chicken fried steak sandwich thinking it would be the same meat. Not sure. It was good and certainly not greasy but only good. Jumbo order of onion rings also a huge amount but not great. They are just a notch below sonics. Last time... More

Immature workers inside causing a lot of noise. Gigglng, squealing girls caused the order take to have to ask for our order a couple of times before he got it right. Only he didn't- They didn't hear the R&R burger because the girls were making too much noise- Went to the Sonic and got a cheese burger for less cost,... More
