Burger Time.

Another classic local Boise drive-in restaurant has closed.

Classic burgers-shakes-and-fries joint Burger Time on Orchard St. near Overland Rd. closed abruptly last week.  The restaurant last changed hands in 2012 but has now closed up shop, leaving menu boards dark and the retro car crowd looking for a new haunt.

The business acted as a nostalgia hub for the Boise Bench – hosting those Saturday night hot rod shows and even giving a stage to Statesman columnist Tim Woodward’s class rock band The Mystics on occasion.

The business’ phone was disconnected, and efforts to track down owner Rennie Cloninger were not successful.
