One thing I have always liked about Big J's is the fast service. The staff works hard and gets meals out quickly. The food is lower end fast food in my opinion. I had the big j burger value meal. I am pretty sure if pulled the meat out and held it up I could see through it because it... More

Don't let the crowds scare you. This place is busy for good reason. The food is great and you get it fast. I was there with two high school boys soccer teams. There was another team leaving as we got there and one came in right behind us. The food was rolling out of the kitchen and everyone looked to... More

If you are traveling through this part of Idaho, it is worth the stop. The burgers are good and the service is fine. Definitely a local favorite. Much better than stopping at a chain restaurant like Wendys, BK or McD's.

We were here on a Saturday afternoon and I am totally amazed at their customer service. Not only was the food terrific but even though they were slammed they were able to get the orders out exceptionally fast. Then they followed up with great customer care while you were eating and the place was immaculate. The shakes are awesome and... More

They do have shakes that use real berries in season. This is fast food with mainly burgers, sandwiches, soups and salads, and they have soft and crisp bean and meat burritos like taco time and taco maker. They charge for fry sauce

Have eaten here several times over the past few years. Their service is great and the menu has a large selection. Prices and food quality are good for fast food and it is easy to access.

We stopped here on our recent jaunt to see where Napoleon Dynamite was filmed and we enjoyed our meal. It wasn't anything extra special and the burgers reminded me of Dairy Queen as far as taste but they served my son's meal in a cute straw cowboy hat. As an added cool factor there was a restaurant attendant that came... More

This is my family's favorite place to stop for a meal when in the Preston, Idaho area. Their burgers taste fresh, they give you a generous amount of fries, and we absolutely love their shakes. The shakes are thick and have to be eaten with a spoon - not like most places that give you a straw with your shake.... More

Every time we visit Preston, we always stop at Big J's Burgers. The food is yummy, and the customer service is the best. The staff are friendly and know how to work hard, think outside the box, and keep lines down. The restaurant is clean and updated. The food is great! We love the fresh line squeeze drinks, fresh berry... More
