Cheap Eats doesn't equal bad food. You can make good food on a budget. Have you ever come home from a night out and just put what you could find in the cabinet and fridge? Sometimes it's the best thing you've ever created, usually created with cheap ingredients. So whether you eat cheap eats all the time or just like these restaurants, you'll find these places on TripAdvisor under cheap eats. Don't be fooled by the category of cheap eats. It's going to be some of the best that Boise has to offer.


If you're not familiar with cheap eats, it's when there's a single "$" describing how expensive the restaurant is. You'll find them on TripAdvisor & Yelp. Don't let the one "$" fool you because even though some fine dining restaurants have "$$$$," you may enjoy the food, atmosphere, and hospitality at cheap eats restaurants.

Boise's Top 10 Cheap Eats list has burgers, African, pizza, cafes, ice cream, and diners. If you have a picky eater in the family, this list has something for everyone.
