Sprezzatura vs. Food: Big Jud's in Boise, Idaho!!

Hi everyone,

We hope your weeks are going well!! We are having a hard time adjusting to working again - how did we find time to do all these blogs? :)

This is just a quick post while we get back in the swing of things about our trip to Big Jud's in Boise, Idaho over Christmas.

Most of you will have heard of the TV show Man vs. Food (if not, please see the Boise clip below, and/or our What We Love Wednesdays post on it!) - Big Jud's made an appearance on that show awhile ago, and it seems to be an episode they repeat frequently, as we always receive texts, emails and Tweets from people thinking of us when they see it! (Which we love, don't stop, it's great!!)

So we HAD to visit over Christmas, and try the Double Big Jud - that's 2 pounds of beef, with cheese between each layer, veggies and sauces, all in a plate sized bun!!

The restaurant is famous for the Big Jud's challenge - if you eat all that plus a giant serving of fries and a large drink within 30 minutes, its all free and you get a t-shirt!!

And so we set out to do the challenge - just kidding, there is no WAY we could complete it!! So instead, we recruited Laura's parents and shared the Double Big Jud 4 ways!

And it was... well, nothing short of spectacular. The burger was delicious, the fries, and the tater tots were to die for. As a place famous for this challenge, we didn't expect the food to actually be so good!! We came home very satisfied Big Juds customers - and with an awesome video to boot!!

Out of curiosity, have you ever been to a restaurant that features on Man vs. Food?


  1. That burger looks AMAZING! My uncle's restaurant was actually featured on Man vs Food last year (Jack-n-Grill in Denver, CO). I'm a foodie so I LOVE that show!

  2. That's crazy! I'm sure it was hilarious trying to eat all that.

  3. Ah I remember seeing that episode.... They look huge xx


Thank you so much for reading our blog and taking the time to comment - we love hearing from you! ♥
