My family has been coming here for burgers since the 1970s, but we will not be coming back after our last visit yesterday. The burgers that were once extraordinary, this time were very small and half burnt, condiments were scarce, and if I wanted more...than a tbsp of ranch for a large order of onion rings for 2, I was told to get back in line and pay for another one... what??? This place used to be great... not sure what happened. Family tradition ruined guys. Not coming back.More

We used to go here for the fun atmosphere and good food. This time the atmosphere seemed to have been affected by the pandemic and not as fun as before. The cheeseburger I had tasted good, though not extraordinary, and a bit on the small...side.More

Met up with my cousin and family here after hiking in the area. This is their stop every time they are in the area, so they brought us here. We arrived when it opened and hopped in line... the place filled up fast. Great sign...of a good restaurant! The menu is minimal... but you should be here for the burger anyway! It was excellent! They are made-to-order. The fries were great, as well. The place is very clean and plenty of seating for different size groups, we had 7. Even though I live across the country, I would recommend Bun Huggers to anyone in the area. If I ever get to Flagstaff again, it will be on my must do list!More

Excellent food. As a non American I don't normally appreciate the exaggeration in food combinations. Bun huggers offers the absolute basic of a burger and then you add the extras you want from a bar. Bread, burger, cheese + tomato and onion from the bar....Fries were also very good. The fried zucchini was disappointing mostly because the recipe allows the zucchini to maintain its moisture. (Consider thinner slices with less butter and now towards the direction of crunchy fries). Price is also very good. Internal decoration is nice and rock friendly. Most takes got a view to a TV.More

It’s nice to have a burger restaurant that’s not the same as all the others. Fried zucchini is great, putting on your own fixings is great, a fun atmosphere well worth the visit.

Bun Huggers never disappoints! Great burgers with that distinct charcoal flavor. Perfect, crisp fries, and cold bottled beer! If you’re looking for a great burger and a casual atmosphere, this is it!

First time back in many years and it was just as good as I remember. Even the salad bar was good enough for my picky vegetarian teen.

Went with my parent who raved about Bun Huggers and how it was the happening cool place in the early 80's when they attended NAU. We had high hopes for dinner but left pretty disappointed. The guy who was taking our order looked as if...he didn't want to be there and got a little snippy when my husband asked for a beer. The condiment bar was much to be desired the shredded lettuce was covered in water and look like soup. All of the other condiments were either missing or very soggy. The place could really use an update it's very dark and dirty I was glad I brought sanitizer with me. We ordered 2 burgers, chicken tenders, fries, and chili. The burger was undercooked and lacked any seasoning the fries were covered in grease and the chili was not edible. Needless to say, we will not be coming back to Bun Huggers.More

Horrible experience! Was there with a party of 14 Saturday night. I went to the bar to order a drink and was looked over 3 different times the 2 bartenders while they served people who walked up after me. Got upset and left. Accidentally left...my leather jacket on a stool in the bar. The next day I went back to get my jacket, the bartender remembered me and putting my jacket in the office. When he went to get my jacket from the office it was gone. So basically they hire thief's. WATCH YOUR STUFF THE STAFF WILL STEAL IT! Will NEVER go back there again!More

Great staff + freshly grilled burgers (in lots of sizes) + an outstanding selection of condiments + terrific deep-fried mushrooms and zucchini slices = ONE GREAT LUNCH!
