Popular Boise Bench Mexican restaurant plans move to larger digs

Andrade’s Mexican Restaurant plans to move to a new, custom-built building, according to City of Boise permit filings.

Right now the Mexican restaurant calls an aging former Shakey’s Pizza on Overland near Orchard home, but hopes to soon move to a site to the east on Overland. The new building is set for construction at 4620 W. Overland, which used to be an office building before crews tore it down in 2016.

The new 6,196 square foot restaurant building would be more than a third larger than the current eatery, with space for more than 240 diners.

The menu features plate-busting buritos, authentic tacos, margaritas and other Mexican specialties.

This will be the third home for Andrade’s Mexican Restaurant, after it launched on Broadway before moving to the old Shakey’s in the 2000s.

The project will go before Boise’s design review board on March 13th.
