Best Local Burger

Boise Fry Company

They joke that burgers are a side at Boise Fry Company, but there's no sidelining these babies. With beef, bison and vegan options, choose from a slate of specialty toppings like "the original" (spring mix, tomato, red on gastrique and garlic aioli), "the heat" (blueberry compote, habaneros, lettuce and spicy ketchup) or the current featured topping. Don't be jealous fries, we still love you.

2nd Place: Westside Drive-In—Take a trip to a simpler time, when dining al fresco meant driving your T-bird right up to the table. Westside Drive-In is a blast from the past, with its State Street location a neon-pink mid-century monument, but it's also the spot for the kind of burgers people get nostalgic for once they've been eaten.

3rd Place: Bittercreek Alehouse—We're going to doubt your Boise street cred unless you're at least familiar with the Huntsman Burger at Bittercreek Ale House. House ground beef topped with British Huntsman of Gloucester cheddar and stilton bleu, lettuce, onion, pickle, tomato and Applewood smoked bacon come together as more than the sum of their parts. And that's saying something.
