Best Local Lunch 


Since it opened in August 2012, Bleubird has run away with the Best Local Lunch category, winning first place in 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016. To so thoroughly dominate the competition right out of the gate is a sure sign that Bleubird is doing something right. Make that somethings right. From its thoughtful sandwich creations to its housemade sodas, the clean, airy eatery on 10th Street is always jam packed during its 11 a.m.-4 p.m. open hours.

2nd Place: Mai Thai Restaurant and Bar—It doesn't get much better than Mai Thai's all-you-can-eat lunch buffet, offered Monday-Friday from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and Saturdays from noon 'til 2 p.m. The menu rotates, but hungry downtowners will always find stir fry, noodle and rice dishes, curries veggie entrees, sushi, soup, appetizers and salad. Sound too good to be true? It gets better: the price is only $11.99.

3rd Place: Tie: Boise Co-op, Main Street Deli—Best of Boise voters fell neatly into two camps when it came to the Boise Co-op and Main Street Deli for their lunchtime faves. On one hand, there are the Co-op's popular made-to-order burritos, sandwiches, pizza and rice bowls. On the other, Main Street Deli excels at hefty, fresh sandwiches and salads. Having two favorites is a good problem to have.,
