Update: Classic Boise burger joint set to reopen

Idaho AGC Going Up

First, news broke of its death.

Then the obituary was written.

Now, like a character in a soap opera, Burger Time looks to be back from the dead.

The drive-through restaurant on Orchard St. in Boise shut down in January – but is already teasing its rebirth.

And like a good soap actor risen from the dead, the restaurant will come back with a bit of a facelift. Crews have been repaving the old, scarred parking lot.

In a comment on the restaurant’s Facebook page, Burger Time says it is waiting for kitchen equipment to be installed, which should happen “next week or the week after. Once it is installed, we are ready to go!”

A source tells BoiseDev the business is under new ownership  

As they say in the soaps… stay tuned!
