Best Local Chef

Chef Lou, Westside

Readers' Picks

It isn't every day that you roll past a ma-and-pop burger joint and think, "There's a chef in there." That's because the popular image of chefs is dominated by white-uniformed folks like Gordon Ramsay and Wolfgang Puck. In a profoundly Boise-esque twist, Chef Lou, the mastermind behind Westside Drive-In and the Idaho Ice Cream Potato, wrestled Best Local Chef away from his fine-dining competitors like John Berryhill and Jered Couch for the popular vote. cheflou.com
