Big Jud’s Custom Burgers debuted a second Treasure Valley location on March 28 at the corner of Overland and Eagle roads (3030 E. Overland Road) next to Pita Pit. The Boise restaurant is at 1289 S. Protest Road near Boise State University.
The menu is a carbon copy of the Boise menu, meaning you will find a lineup of big burgers served with hand-cut fries and thick ice cream milkshakes.
Besides burgers, the popular burger joint also puts out chicken sandwiches, fish and chips and finger steaks served with ubiquitous fry sauce.
Big Jud’s is known for its 1- and 2-pound burger challenges, which gives diners the opportunity to have their photo placed on the wall of fame if they can consume one of the huge burgers (with fries and a drink) within 30 minutes. Those who complete the 2-pound burger challenge win a free T-shirt.
