Some of our and our customers favorite dining options in Meridian.
One of Idaho’s larger cities, Meridian is a perfect complement to the capital for some great nightlife options. With a host of ethnic and American-themed restaurants, there’s something to make both American diners and out-of-towners feel right at home.
One of the most unique dining choices in Meridian, Epi’s a Basque Restaurant is sure to please. Thanks to the wonderful waitstaff, you’ll have no problem ordering exactly what you need with dishes like the Arkumea Txuletak, four beautifully served lamb chops with a side of Basque style fried rice. This place really knows how to do bread pudding. Their apple bread pudding with caramel sauce is so sweet and warm, you’ll be ordering seconds — or at least a plate to take home.
For staters, you simply will not find a better rib eye steak in all of Meridian than at Goodwood. Some other crowd favorites here are the baby back ribs, with just the perfect amount of BBQ sauce. And of course, no BBQ restaurant deserves a mention if they can’t cook up a mean chicken fried steak, which Goodwood does wonderfully. Here at Goodwood, you’ll be leaving full and ready to come back again. One more thing: their BBQ brisket sandwich is to die for!
Flatbread’s is one of the most family friendly restaurants in Meridian thanks to their make your own pizza. It’s a hit with the kids. Unfortunately, this option is only for them, but the full bar offers more than enough to make it up to the adults. Their flatbread pizza is wonderful, especially their Blanco Magnifico, a white cheese pizza with super tender chicken. For a lighter option, their half wedge salad and Caesar salad are pretty fulfilling and served with an amazing presentation.
The self-proclaimed “only authentic Thai restaurant in Meridian” Sa-Wad-Dee is one of the town’s most popular spots. While their Thai food will make both your mouth and your eyes water, they make some great sushi. For a quick fill up, the Sashimi Deluxe is a good bet. It comes with 16 pieces of some of the freshest seafood in all of Idaho. The ambiance here is awesome as well. It’s very Thai-inspired, yet it remains casual with a great waitstaff.
