Fans of The Griddle will soon have a new location option, according to a permit application.

The local chain of breakfast and lunch eateries plans a fifth local location in Meridian on Fairview Ave., just west of Locust Grove Rd.

The new 3,464 square foot restaurant building would sprout up on a pad site behind Banner Bank at 910 E. Fairview Ave.

Plans show a typical Griddle layout: with booth seating along the sides, tables in the middle, and a long bar near the kitchen.

The new building will open up onto a courtyard.

“The courtyard will provide a pedestrian connection to the existing pedestrian corridor located on the east side of N. Lakes,” property co-owner Doug Tamura wrote in an application letter. “The overall scale and pedestrian-friendly building will be an addition to the Fairview Lakes neighborhood.”

The Griddle first opened in Winnemucca, NV in 1948. It expanded to the Treasure Valley with a restaurant on Overland Rd. in Meridian in 2007. Locations in Eagle, Southeast Boise and Nampa followed.

An extensive breakfast menu of both sweet and savory options includes staples like benedicts and french toast, as well as dishes like Auntie Mo’s Spuds and several crepes.

The Griddle also offers lunch – but locations close each day at 2 p.m.

The new building will need design review approval from the City of Meridian. No hearing date set by city planner just yet.
