As we transition into spring, it’s time to clear off the grills and make way for BBQ season! While backyard cookouts are always a favorite warm weather past-time, having someone else cook for you is always a treat.
Here’s a roundup of a few Boise burger favorites.
If you’re short on time, but don’t want to compromise on taste, make sure to swing by Main Street Burger drive-thru. Beyond class burger options, they kick it up a notch with their “5 Alarm “or “Western Bacon” burgers and offer a chicken patty option also. Fans of Main Street love the details that make this spot unique like their cornmeal-dusted buns, real mayo and Meadow Gold Soft Serve ice cream used in their floats and shakes.
Don’t let the name fool you! While freshly-cut, locally-sourced fries (available in every color and shape you can think of) take center stage at Boise Fry Company, their burgers steal the show. All of their beef is free-range, grass-fed and comes straight from Boise’s Double R Ranch. They are known for mixing up the standard burger offering with menu items like “The Heat,” which features seasonal berry compote, habaneros, lettuce and spicy ketchup. Another local favorite is their vegan burger option, made with black beans, quinoa and a mixture of herbs and spices.
If smoked burgers are your thing, Big Daddy has you covered. The “All-American Smoked Burger” is a half-pound, smoked patty piled with bacon, lettuce, pickle, tomato and their popular house sauce. While burgers are a staple at this joint, they also serve up other mouth-watering menu items of the smoked variety: wings, chili, ribs, brisket and more. If you’re not able to stop into their Boise location, you can check their calendar for Big Daddy’s Meat Wagon schedule to grab a bite on the go.
This little spot is sure to hit the spot! You’ll have to make sure and get there by lunchtime (they’re open until 2 p.m.) and you’ll want to make sure to save your appetite. All of their burgers are made with 1/3-pound Angus patties and they offer a ton of options to fit every burger preference, like their Hawaiian cheeseburger with pineapple and teriyaki sauce, or homemade chili burger. Feeling a little adventurous? Locals know to order their burgers “Nate’s Way” to substitute sausage for the burger patty. Enjoy a side of freshly-cut fries or tater tots and be sure to treat yourself to a hand-scooped milkshake.
