Recommended places to eat in Boise, Idaho

First off i have gone to all these food establishments multiple times and i will judge from my experience on which places offer unique food and service in my city of boise. 
Burger and Fries:

The first restaurant that i will recommend going to is Pac-Out which is located near Simplot hill address: 2315 N Bogus Basin Rd, Boise, ID
this place always has the best burgers and fries. they have decent milkshakes as well. but i think they have one of the best burgers in boise. (i especially love there bacon burger) offers reasonable pricing.

The second restaurant i recommend visiting is Fry Company, which offer 3 different kinds of burgers; beef, bison and vegan they buy all local and they also have i believe 5 or 6 different kinds of fries from russet to sweet potatoes. there burgers cost a little much about 6$ and small fry is about 2$ and large 3$. lastly they offer a variety of different spices and sauces to put on your fries i.e. garlic and rosemary seasoning and blueberry ketchup. Address: Suite 111, 111 Broadway Avenue, Boise, ID

The third restaurant is Bad boy burger which i think has the best bacon cheeseburgers and i would just order fries there onion rings are not very good. The prices are reasonable. They are located on fairview, address: 7000 West Fairview Avenue, Boise, ID

Lastly for the burger and Fries section is Vikings which is a small place off of state st. and has a small couple of lanes for drive-thru. prices are expensive burger does not equal price but fries are well-seasoned and go great with there fry sauce and they also have good milkshakes. Address: 3790 West State Street, Boise, ID


Gallo Giro: they offer a great authentic mexican cuisine. For a GREAT price. one of my favorite things on there menu are there "famous street tacos" i usually get 4 for lunch always good, been open for about a year probably longer. Address: El Gallo Giro Mexican Restaurant
5285 Glenwood Street
Boise, Idaho 83714

The Next restaurant is the Stuffed Olive which serves italian food. my favorite thing about this place is there phenomenal calamari. they also offer other great dishes such as pasta. they are a small place on eagle and state. they have about 7 or 8 tables i believe.
Address: 404 South Eagle Road, Eagle, ID

I will update with more restaurants soon!
