RAM, Boise

How I heard of this place: About a decade ago, I was first introduced to the Ram by a group of friends attending the University of Washington. A late night meal for the UW students meant a trip to the University Village and the Ram. I swore to never return. My husband’s business trip detracted us and we were back…this time in Boise.

Type of cuisine: We are all about great food, ice-cold hand-crafted beer and creating memories, and we have been for over 40 years. The first RAM opened as a “Deluxe Tavern” in Lakewood, Washington on February 26th, 1971….

Over the years, what began as “Deluxe Taverns” have grown into the casual, family-oriented restaurants for which we are known and loved. We are dedicated to creating superior quality food, and committed to providing our friends an environment of Gracious Hospitality. From the moment you are greeted at our front door, you will feel like a special guest dining in our home.

In 1995, we began brewing our own beer and contributing to the successful evolution of the craft beer industry. Our passionate and talented brewers strive to create the freshest, most “drinkable” beers you will find, and their efforts have garnered the RAM over 100 medals from institutions as prestigious as the NABA and GABF. We celebrate our brewers’ ingenuity each and every day with a rotating selection of “seasonal” creations, which are locally brewed, by hand, with the freshest local ingredients….

As we approach our 44th anniversary, the future is promising. We look forward to bringing our innovative menus and award winning beer to new communities while continuing to craft memories with our amazing team members and guests.

Ambiance: Sports. Bar.

What I ordered: Happy Hour running for a full fifteen more minutes, we selected a handful of deep fried goodies to enjoy. Among them, the newest menu item: Corn Dog Lollipops ($5.49), house-made and served with beer mustard,

and the Chicken Caesar Salad ($4.99).

My husband also indulged in The Faburgé, or what he termed, “The Fatburger”, named after the famed “Fabergé” egg, featuring breakfast, lunch and dinner in every bite! A seasoned burger patty, cheddar, sliced ham, hickory smoked bacon, fried egg, onion crisps and mayo, served with a side of fries.

What I loved: The corn dogs were surprisingly satisfying, but I could really only eat one “pop”. The Caesar salad pungent with dressing and an abundance of Parmesan.

Why I loved it: Fast. Food. The end to an eight-hour road trip.

Cost: Average ($9.99 – $13.99 per burger entree)
