Big Buns is a "fun-casual" American grill specializing in simple, gourmet inspired food that's crafted with the highest quality ingredients, made-to-order, and served with the belief that eating out should be a totally customizable experience.
The best ingredients make the best food...no compromises. It's been our belief since 2007 when we opened our doors and became an instant neighborhood fixture. It's still why we do what we do today.
We're located on the backside of the building in a beautiful courtyard with outdoor seating for up to forty guests.
We offer complimentary parking validation for the Ballston Common Mall Parking Garage with any purchase.

"The burger is big, messy and delicious. It has everything you need. Grill flavor? Check. Meat juices? Check. Loosely formed patty? Check. Lusty, crusty char? Check. Deep, beefy flavor? Check."
"Baby got back. Think black-bean mango salsa, roasted corn salsa, avocado slices, bacon, fried onion straws and six varieties of cheese."
"Their slogan 'damn good burgers,' might be brazen, but it’s also true. The Sea Salt N' Peppa is one of the twenty best burgers in Virginia."
"Spice lovers, however, will definitely want to go the chipotle-pesto route. The frothy fire-starter—part creamy, part kerosene—hooks you in with the seductive aioli base, and then zaps the back of your throat with peppery heat seconds later (hurts so good)."
