Big Bun is a classic drive in burger and shake restaurant. We serve a number of homemade items, including original recipe finger steaks, fish and chips, corn dogs and our ever popular mozzarella sticks. We are still serving up the classic menu items from over the decades and have added some ones. There are over 55 milkshake flavors and 6 kinds of fresh fruit squeezed daily lemonades. Above everything else, we pride ourselves on our great customer service!

We went to this place on recommendation of a co-worker. Also, I had a Boise Noon Optimist card which gave us a discount. We were hungry for a burger so decided to give Big Bun a try. It took a little while for the food to arrive, not a big deal as presumably they were making everything fresh. I got a double cheeseburger, the wife a single, we shared a large fries. The burgers were OK, just that. The same ol' frozen, dry, grissly, pre-formed, pre-packaged hamburger you can get anywhere. I can't even describe the condiments they put in it either, but I do remember shredded lettuce. It was edible and I was hungry. The fries were cooked well and crispy. But I think they were pre-packaged fare as well, having some kind of flavoring. Good but artificial. Conclusion: Will not go here again. If I want a burger, I'll go to Big Juds'.

The "new" Big Bun Drive In – Sad to say, I agree with Cassie's review. Like Cassie, I have been a loyal customer of The Big Bun for years, often going out of my way to eat there. I just moved into their area, and was excited about the close proximity. Today I ordered a $7.00 burger (which is the price I would expect to pay at a sit-down restaurant and which would come with fries), and their finger steaks. Burger was very good, but again, not a price I would expect from a drive-thru. The finger steaks were way overdone (and also overpriced - could have had excellent ones, with fries, at Buster's.) Sad to say...I won't be going back. Will visit The Gyro Shack up the street instead - excellent food, excellent value!

Goodbye old friend. – As a little girl, I was always excited to go to Big Bun with my mom and sister. The food was good and it made for good memories. My mom would sit and tell us about how she ate there as a girl, and the food was just as good back then. It was probably the best place around, especially locally owned. But then Fancy Freeze came along and ruined a good thing. The prices are way too high now and the quality of food has gone down hill. I always hoped that if I had kids I could take them to Big Bun and share my stories with them, but that won't happen now. It costs $17 for 2 burgers and 1 fry, and they aren't even as good as they used to be. The place also takes forever to make food, and they expect a tip after. Sometimes corporations need to learn to leave well enough alone.

Used to be my favorite – After years and years of eating at Big Bun it seems they decided to change a good thing. The hamberger patty is now paper thin. Hopefully they will go back to a decent size patty. "Wheres the beef" comes to mind.

my milkshake brings all the boys to the yard Go here for the milkshakes. The other food is so so and the location is kind of ghetto (the drive through wraps around the sitting area). but the milkshakes are yummy yum yum. Love the boston shake.

pumpkin milkshakes--nom nom nom What could be better on earth than a pumpkin milkshake and an order of hot, crispy tater gems. Oh yea, and don't forget the hamburgers at big bun because they are delicious. I didn't really like being in an island outside with drive through cars on both sides but the food is definitely better than any other fast food in town. Oh, that is one thing it took about 20 minutes to get our food. But it was so good that I forgot all about the wait. And love the gigantic straw that they gave me with my milkshake. Mmmm......can't wait to go again

Big Bun Drive In is good, old fashioned food Big Bun provides old fashioned food that tastes oh-so-good! If you want a corn dog, finger steaks, shrimp or anything else then definitely stop by Big Bun. They also offer great frozen treats!

Great Food and Atmosphere! Big Bun has been around longer than I have. If you want good burgers and fries or a great milkshake you have to go to Big Bun. They also have the best scotch & sodas in town.

Best Milkshakes guaranteed If you want a milkshake that you need a hose to drink it, this is the place. They have lots of flavors and they are the best. They also have yummy burgers and tots. The prices are great and it has that retro feel.
