The food is great. The french fries are baked and are delicious! The pizza and burgers are always wonderful and the wait staff is among the friendliest in Boise. Definitely worth the drive! The mud pie is fantastic too. Bill and Nancy

This has been our favorite spot to stop on our way to the Hot Springs in idaho City! Sometimes this place becomes our destination, the food and the people that come here are so nice and friendly. It has such a great small town vibe!...More

Great to hear from you, Jeanne! And great to hear you've enjoyed the pizzas in the skillet option. It's something new we've been tinkering with for our ketogenic and gluten free fans. And it has been a hit! Hope to see you again soon... Cheers...More

Out of the way restaurant for sure, but we think worth the drive. Pizza was recommended so I tried it and was not disappointed. Very good flavor, just needed more pizza sauce imo. My wife tried the Korean street tacos and she really enjoyed them....More

As my now departed mother would say, "TOP DRAWER!" Service exceptional, food mouth-wateringly good. What more could you ask for?

My husband and I went on a motorcycle ride 7 miles outside Boise and happened across Hilltop Station. Expecting to find your run-of-the-mill small town greasy spoon, we were pleasantly surprised by a classy lodge feel when we walked inside. Great atmosphere, great burgers, pizzas,...More
