Boise Football game - good eats?
We will be attending the game Wed night. As out-of-towners, are there any good eats at the stadium? Near the stadium? We are visiting for four nights, and any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated. We are staying downtown and have a car.
I went to Boise this weekend for the first time and I found this thread most interesting http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/399583.
Since you are there for four night's I'd highly recommend a trip out to Brick 29 in Nampa. I ate there last night and was awfully happy with it. I just wrote a long review at http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/560907.
Two good spots within walking distance of the stadium are Buster's, and the Ram. Buster's Grill and Bar is Boise's version of Hooters with short-short clad waitresses. But they've also got the best fish and chips I've ever had, using halibut in a light tempura-like batter that allows the fish to cook perfectly but doesn't leave it greasy. Sports bar fare and atmosphere, but good quality. The Ram is a brewpub and we ate there last Wednesday night. We were there earlier than usual and had a great "early-bird" supper; your choice of chicken, steak or salmon, with a baked potato and choice of green or Caesar salad, for only $9.99. Heckuva deal and the salmon was perfect with their wheat beer. They've got a nice patio, right on the Greenbelt. Downtown, I've always liked Bardenay, a restaurant/distillery, but havn't been there in awhile.
