Good Burger on the move: Local burger chain closes store with plans for another

Good Burger, the Boise-based chain of burger and fry shops closed the doors on its Downtown Boise location. Crews started moving out equipment from the space at the corner of 10th Street and Main Street in the Kount building.

Good Burger owner Nicholas Jones told BoiseDev that he planned to move the store to a drive-thru location. He did not elaborate on where. A search of City of Boise permit records shows no current application for a Good Burger drive-thru.

The downtown Good Burger opened in the fall of 2018, along with a self-serve beer concept called “The Drop.” The location later focused on the Good Burger concept, removing The Drop branding.

Jones said the downtown restaurant is the only location affected. The fast-growing local chain offers locations at Boise Towne Square, on Eagle Rd., at the Boise Spectrum and on State St. in NW Boise, which will remain open. Good Burger also fields four locations in Utah.

Good Burger plays a winking homage to the 1997 movie of the same name, starring Nickelodeon stars Kennan Thompson and Kel Mitchell.
