Re: “Best Jewelry Store

This place is full with high-class jewelry and diffrent fashion tips. But comparing prices on such tips with the same ones on , I can say that they are quite expensive

Re: “Best Local Tattoo Parlor

I don't get this. No explanation why they are the best? No example pictures of their work? 2 'customer reviews'? That's like attempting to convince another person that peanut butter is tasty. Wholly subjective.

Please show us WHY. IE: explain where/when/how this 'parlor' originated, who the owner is, what experience they have, how clean the shop is, etc. Also, pictures tell a bunch - especially when online.

Re: “Best Local Barbecue

Wing Lover: Yes, Goodwood has multiple locations, including some in Utah, but it is a Boise-based company with it's headquarters here and none of its restaurants are franchises—they are all owned and operated by the Boise company. It's the same qualification we have for all restaurants—they must be owned by local people with all decisions made here, regardless of how many locations they have.

Re: “Best Local Tattoo Parlor

The 208 Tattoo & Massage Lounge has been the best tattoo shop in Boise! They do all my work!

Re: “Best Local Barbecue

Why does the Boise Weekly count the Goodwood as a local restaurant and not consider it a chain? They have several restaurants in Utah and Boise?

Re: “Best Local Thai Food

Saw Wad Dee is just like Mom's Thai food! All the vets that remember Thailand eat at Saw wad Dee. Mai Thai is pretty just not authentic. If you like Chinese food and Japanese food with your Thai food than I guess its the same. I am rooting for Saw Wad Dee.

Re: “Best Local Taxi Service

Careful, I missed a flight because they were 45 minutes late and when I called after 25 min, they said it would only be 5-10 minutes. Needless to say it was longer. Lesson learned, I should have drove after they said another 5-10 min and I would have barely made my flight.

Re: “Best Way to Tell Gluten to Stuff It

Gluten free is great for those who require it, but the rest of the menu is top rate. I love the Eggs Benedict and the Chicken Fried Steak with home made pork gravy!

Re: “Best Local Radio Station

neither npr nor the river are local radio stations, in any meaningful way. the programming is canned. having an office in a town does not a local business make.

Hell, I can cook Thai food way better. Good lord, does the reviewer get paid for their job?

Re: “Best Local Thai Food

LOL, Mai Thai? Time for Boise to get food reviewers who know what good food is. Sa Wad Dee is hands down the best Thai in this valley. Mai Tai, lol, how much they pay you for this award? The same reviewer probably thinks that Lindey's puts out the best steak in town, or Taco Time is the best Mexican food in town. Pathetic.

Re: “Best Local Thai Food

I can't remember the last time I was so unimpressed with a restaurant! The lunch buffet was terrible. Half the items were gone and what was left was mediocre at best. They asked us what we would like to have them refill, but that didn't happen. On top of all this they had the gull to add 18% tip to the bill for a group of 6!!! I will never eat there again and make sure that everyone I know does the same....

Re: “Best Local Food Truck

"Boise Weekly reseves the right to remove your comments..." Thanks, BW for repealing the first ammendment.
I guess I shouldn't mention that I contracted food poisoning from Archie's.

Re: “Best Local Brewpub

It seems unfair that Payette was included in this category - nothing against Payette by any means, but the fact that they were included in a category that includes food when they don't produce any food seems unfair. Was Crooked Fence included in the selection list? They don't produce food either, but food trucks frequent their parking lot. In my humble opinion, the Brewpub category should be reserved for those breweries who produce food.

Re: “Best Local Seafood

Not so fresh, out of the freezer, over priced, cafeteria service, major failure here.
Just pick up some Mrs Snow's frozen dinners and enjoy them at home. Same thing.

Re: “Best Local Grocery Store

Actually, WinCo stands for Winning Company and it sure is!!! I love my WinCo Foods!

"The company operated stores under the names of Waremart Food Centers and Cub Foods until 1999 when it changed its storefront name and the corporate name to WinCo Foods, which stands for Winning Company."
