4) KIN

We feel like family. We support, nourish, educate and bicker with one another. We keep each other grounded and pick each other up. We connect and care. We believe in our team and the Boise community and want to do our part to bring the best out of both. Visit KIN’s Website.

5) Hawkins Pac-Out

Hawkin’s Pac-Out is an old fashioned, family-owned and operated drive-thru. We start cooking when you order. This might take a minute or two longer than some other places but we think you can taste the difference. Visit Hawkins Pac-Out Website.

6) Barbarian Brewing

If a donut and a stout had a baby, what would it taste like? Is edible glitter a thing? Those are the kind of questions that come up when we’re crafting our beers. And apparently, we’re not the only ones who think a little outside the barrel. Since we staged our invasion in 2015, our band of misfits has been proudly un-refining taste buds at our Garden City brewery and downtown Boise taproom. Visit Barbarian Brewing’s Website.

7) Calle 75

“We have eaten at almost every Mexican, or Mexican American restaurant in Boise, and Calle 75 Street Tacos have consistently come in first for freshness and flavor.” Visit Calle 75’s Website.

8) Neurolux

Trendy late-night venue offering a full bar with nightly live indie bands in a laid-back atmosphere. Visit Neurolux’s Website.
