Pizza. Beer. Burgers.
The combination has worked nicely for Growler’s Pizza Grill, which debuted in McCall four years ago.
So well, in fact, that owners Troy and Jennifer Summers are bringing the formula to Boise.
Growler’s will open a restaurant at 9931 W. Cable Car Street, suite 110, Jennifer Summers says. It’s about 1/4 mile east of Overland and Five Mile roads.
“We’re hoping for mid-May,” she says.
Growler’s is a family-friendly destination with multiple big-screen TVs for watching sports. The restaurant specializes in pizza but offers other pub comfort food, too.
“Our menu offers a good variety of freshly made selections: Pizza, burgers, sandwiches, salad bar and breakfast,” Summers says, adding that breakfast will be served only on Saturdays and Sundays initially.
With a restaurant name that refers to both a bear and a 64-ounce beer vessel, Growler’s fills a significant number of growlers for customers, Summers says.
“We do a lot of that in McCall. I anticipate we probably will here (in Boise), as well. We have three local breweries up in McCall, so it’s a pretty big deal up there.”
Ten beer taps are planned, with five of those dedicated to McCall’s Broken Horn Brewing Company. Broken Horn is in the process of creating a beer that will be exclusive to Growler’s. The restaurant will serve Proletariat as its house wine.
If you’ve been to Growler’s in McCall, expect a larger space in Boise. Summers said the restaurant will be about twice as big inside, with an indoor seating capacity of around 125. Growler’s also will offer patio dining.
Oh, and if you’re a Boise State hoops fan, you’ll spot a friendly face. Former BSU basketball standout Mark Sanchez will run Growler’s in Boise. He’s the Summers’ son-in-law.
