I have lived in Boise for many years, but never ate at Big Juds. I decided to finally try it. I ordered the bacon cheeseburger. The burger was good and the bacon was very tasty (thick and extra crispy). The bun was freshly made. Unfortunately,...More

Okay, you can get a regular burger too. They are famous for 1 and 2 lbs. burgers but I just went for a double cheese burger. (1/2 lbs.) They make their own buns on site and they hold together well. All the fresh fixings complete...More

Fresh hand pressed beef patties, great toasted buns, fresh toppings and hand cut fries. There aren't many places left like this anymore. I will go back every time I am in Boise if I can. Excellent food and service.

Had a good lunch. Burger and chicken sandwich were great. Be prepared for French Logs when you order fries.

Shared the pound burger with our family of four and couldn't finish! Huge! So full of flavor too! Not a run of the mill fast food party and buns taste homemade! Hand cut fries were good too! Fun!

First of all, I would move to Boise just for the clean taste of the water, but Big Juds has great burgers. Mine had bacon, Swiss cheese and mushrooms. The toasted bun helped hold it all together, and even though I usually ditch the bun...More
