#1871 - Bojack's Broiler Pit, Lewiston, ID - 8/25/2011

Named for original owners Bob and Jack, who for some reason decided to put a steakhouse restaurant in the basement of a rollicking dive bar upstairs, Bojack's is a local institution. It was founded in 1951, purchased by Wally and Katie Eglund in 1969 (the restaurant that is, they bought the bar later), and run by the Eglund family ever since.  The bar upstairs is fun, if a little intimidating for some diners to traverse, and there are nifty signs on either side of the building.  Locals recommend the Bite Sized Steak (tender deep fried pieces of steak).

311 Main Street, Lewiston, ID 83501 - (208) 746-9532           
Est. 1951

September 2020 open. A guy earlier in the day at Elk Saloon Bovill phoned them to give us beers. When we arrived, the bartender great us with: "are you Tom from Tacoma? We'd been expecting you for hours." The other bartender (the owner?) gave "No Bar Too Far", the Idaho bar guide.

Effie's Tavern is historic, though much remodeled. Old refridge cases.

The Huddle started out as a tire store. The same family has owned it three generations for 50 years. The bar, back bar, and table were salvaged from the
Oldtime Lewiston. Steph (female)is the bartender.
