Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger. Heard of this new Boise restaurant?

Any Kel Mitchell or Kenan Thompson lookalikes out there? Heck, any gleefully dim-witted teenagers will do. Good Burger opens this month at Boise Towne Square.

“Welcome to Good Burger, home of the Good Burger, can I take your order?”

Employees at a new Boise Towne Square burger joint might not be able to greet customers with that exact catchphrase. And, for legal reasons, don’t expect them to wear fast-food uniforms plucked straight from the cult comedy movie “Good Burger.”

“Likeness is one thing we can’t replicate,” owner Nicholas Jones says, “so we’re not going to have the paper hats.”

“But we’re going to do what we can to bring that familiarity, that joy, back,” Jones adds. “It’s also going to be a dang good burger.”

Good Burger is slated to open March 17 in the food court. It will take over a space vacated by McDonald’s.

Jones wants the food to be more upscale than McDonald’s, not to mention the Good Burger in the 1997 movie.

“It’s been a concept that I’ve had in the works for a while,” he says. “We have a very specific sauce that we think is going to be the best sauce that anybody is going to find on any burger. We honestly think we’ve created the best burger that anybody’s going to have.”

Good Burger will use Snake River Farms beef. Most hamburgers will cost $6 to $7, and they will be served on Tuscan buns. There also will be a $1.50 budget burger available. Sodas will cost $1, no matter what size the customer orders.

“We’re also going to have some good quality shakes, and we’re going to have some live fun humor for people when they come to buy some food,” he adds.
