“Little Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2014 NEW

We were passing through Lewiston and looking for a place to grab a bite. BBQ sounded good so we pulled in — had an absolutely awesome lunch — pulled pork sandwich with homemade chips for me, a combo for my husband. The staff and proprietress were really friendly, the service was great. We even were given a free dessert! I… More

“Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives worthy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2014 via mobile

Don’t get frightened by the exterior with the flames and pink paint. This place is all about the food and customers experience. The staff is kind and friendly and the food is comforting and tasty. You know you’ve come to the right place when the waitress is talking to regulars like they are neighbors. Because of the glum weary traveller… More

“Delicious BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

This hole in the wall is small, off the beaten path, and definitely not a chain serving plastic food. This is real barbecue slowly cooked and professionally prepared with the highest quality meats. There is no better barbecue for hundreds of miles. I recommend the brisket or pulled pork sandwich and top the meat with a scoop of the tangy… More

“Best BBQ in Idaho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We stumbled into this place on a road trip up to the panhandle, and boy were we happy! We’re recent transplants from “Back East,” where there’s lots of good barbecue, and this place really measures up. Everything is home made, the portions are generous, and the service is tops. Both of us had the brisket, which was smoky and tender…. More

“Awesome BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

I love Trip Adviser! I would have NEVER found this place otherwise. It is rare to find really good BBQ outside of Texas. Everyone ate everything. Family next to us ate everything. I fear the next time I come through Lewiston I’ll have to wait for a table – but I will!

“A Lucky Lunch Stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

To our luck, we happened to be passing through Lewiston on the way to southern Idaho about the time our stomachs were growling for lunch. And there, by the side of the road, was The Lunch Box. It’s a small place with a very friendly staff and in no time we had our pulled pork sandwiches and home made potato… More

“Easy and great find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

On our way from BC we stopped at the Lunch Box. It’s easy off the I-195. The owner and staff are all so happy to see you and can’t do enough. I had the special. Pulled pork with slaw in a hogie bun. My husband had the Hog Heaven. An awesome combo of pulled pork and smoked sausage. Don’t miss… More

“Motorcycle trip just got better!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

Talk about a friendly staff to greet you when you first get there! The the food was great. Just a little hole in the wall but the type I love. Beef brisket with homemade coleslaw, homemade baked beans and chips, then the best peach cobbler I’ve ever had! I will be back!

“You must stop here!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

From the minute we stepped inside this little restaurant and were warmly greeted by Marie and her staff until we waddled back to our car to continue our road trip, we had an experience, not just lunch. We overheard another customer (obviously a regular) ask Marie if she had any of the vegetable beef soup he had had previously, so… More

“Big Flavor Small Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Was in Lewiston, Idaho on business. I always look for BBQ in any place I go. The Lunch Box did not disappoint. I had heard I needed to go here so I did. The burnt ends were absolutely awesome. Flavorful and tender. The pulled pork was pretty good as well just not as good as the burnt ends. I am… More
