Serving a generous helping of Idaho hospitality and steak-and-potatoes cuisine, this wood-paneled mainstay opened its doors in 1959. While trendy eateries have moved into Boise, this restaurant has kept to its roots. Diners will find Western art and artifacts decorating the restaurant's dark walls, and a menu that looks the same as did it 40 years ago. All cuts of steak are offered from tenderloin tips to prime rib, and the prawns come big, breaded and fried.
Serving specialty pizzas, this funky little joint has become a local Boise favorite. The list of pizza choices seems endless, from traditional pies like the Contest Combo with pepperoni, sausage, olives and mushrooms, to the nontraditional, such as the Acapulco Verde with black bean sauce, onions, tomatillo sauce and tomatoes. There are even pesto pizzas, chicken pizzas and vegetarian pizzas. Side orders include salads and bread sticks. A wide selection of beverages is available, from wine coolers and beer to soft drinks.
This bicycle-decorated coffee house offers something most others don't - waffles, and lots of them.

Sandwiches, soup and salad are the lunch offerings. The owner, a former racer and bicycle mechanic, is known for brewing strong coffee.
Little has changed at this side-of-the-road cafe, and, but one thing is for sure, neither have its famous scones. Typical deli sandwiches, soups and salads are consumed here, but if you would like to unleash the sugar-tooth fairy, try a scone - powdered-sugar, fruit and honey are just a few of the options. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, this restaurant never closes. Leave the cell phone and laptop at home, but bring plenty of quarters for the jukebox.

The beverage menu includes beer and wine.
