Long-running Boise Towne Square restaurant won’t reopen

Tamarack Summer
COVID-19 Idaho

Great Steak, one of the longest-running restaurants in the food court at Boise Towne Square, won’t reopen.

The restaurant, known for fast service of Philly cheesesteaks and fries, closed in March as the COVID-19 pandemic started to impact Idaho. More than a month after restaurants could reopen as part of the state’s phased plan, Great Steak remained closed.

Now, the restaurant, franchised by Kahala Corp., appears closed for good.

Dom Falance noticed an updated sign that reads “From all of the Great Steak Crew, we love you guys, we are not coming back :(.”

The store’s phone is now disconnected. Attempts to reach Kahala were not successful.
