Is your stomach rumbling for a midday meal? Idaho’s eclectic and delicious lunch spots can help you out. The need for good choices for that glorious lunch hour and break from the stresses of the day is serious. Here are the 6 greatest places to grab a hearty lunch in the state.
Hugo’s Deli is a local chain in the Boise area. They offer their famous deli sandwiches, which are similar to California-style sandwiches, with organic and healthy options, but they also offer additional foods, such as finger steaks, French fries, hot sandwiches and multiple kid’s options.
At Off Broadway, they serve food the old-fashioned way. We pile our sandwiches HIGH (as in New York high!). This is a true traditional deli, New York style. They offer the pastrami and Swiss like no other in the area. Located in Boise, it is one of the few traditional delis to offer the sandwich the old way. You are family here and treated as such.
If you are looking for a San Francisco Bay sandwich, this is the place for you. It is the only place in the state to offer this so-desired specialty sandwich! This eatery offers a taste you can’t miss. Stop in and say hi!
The Boise Co-op is a grocery store with local, healthy foods. They also offer a great café/deli combo inside the store. They serve up hot plate foods like fried chicken and meatloaf meals with all the fixings, made with a healthy set of products. The locals love this place for shopping and eating!
McAlister’s Deli is a favorite lunch time spot in the Twin Falls area. They offer traditional sandwiches and subs, plus great soups and salads as well as bagels. A great place to stop for some good, old-fashioned foods for lunch with an old-fashioned price to go with it.
Arugula Deli is an Idaho Falls favorite. It offers a very unique menu for the health-conscious. They offer po’boys with fresh fried chips and a slaw that’s to die for. If you are vegetarian, this is a great option for you, too.
