There have been too many lists of the best of this and the best of that, but for the most part, they are chain restaurants. Don't get me wrong, they're some great chain restaurants, but whenever we can find a local restaurant being highlighted, we want to ensure we help spread the word!

LoveFood has created a list of "America's Best Soul Food Spots." Being able to support small businesses also means supporting the community. "One bite of a hush puppy from Louisiana's Soul Bayou, and you'll be transported 2,000 miles from Boise to New Iberia, Louisiana, where the owner of this soul food restaurant is from."

Fielding D., on Yelp, had this to say about Louisiana's Soul Bayou " I found this place on Yelp, and it absolutely delivered. I spent a few days in Boise with my family, and this was our favorite place to eat. We got the popcorn chicken, shrimp po'boy, Mac and cheese, and hush puppies. All were excellent, but I probably enjoyed the hush puppies the most. Wish we had this place back in Utah!"

Another Yelp review from Lj A. said, "Not much to say but DAMNNN! This place is legit, and it left me wanting more. I'm not from Boise but I visit often and will be back for more. The banana pudding is amazing!! Everything I Had was amazing!"

They opened in 2020 at 7609 W Overland Rd, Boise, ID, and you're only going to get your hands on some gumbo on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, according to their menu on Facebook. Make sure to follow them on their social media because they always have specials like this one popping up.

I know where I'm going to lunch or dinner this week. Maybe I'll see you there!
