Stopped here after driving by it for years. They were very busy but still managed excellent service. The food was good and the salad I had with blue cheese dressing had chunks of real blue cheese in it—yummy! Burger was good but the thick-cut fries...More

Big Juds has a great traditional burger but is famous for their Big Jud. My family of four ordered the the meal for four with the burger, two fries, and four drinks. The cost is worth it at about 23$ I’d suggest trading one fry...More
