We once described the saga of Boise’s Burger Time as a soap opera. There’s another episode.

The business – now known as Tiki Teriyaki Burger Time, went up for sale late last year. The sales flier says the owner has “some personal issues that force the sale of his dream opportunity.”

Burger Time, under a different ownership group, closed in 2018. Later that same year, new ownership revived the business, merging it with the Tiki Teriyaki food truck. A new, revamped menu, combined traditional drive-thru classics with Hawai’ian-infused dishes. Tiki Teriyaki Burger Time remains open.

The business listing says the drive-thru and food truck can be purchased together – or just the physical location at 1273 S. Orchard in Boise.

The Boise area continues to lose classic burger restaurants, like College In N Out, The Wave, Chow Now and Hungry Onion. Burger Time first opened its doors in 1965.
