Stan’s Char-Broiled Hot Dogs to close Vista Village restaurant


Stan’s Char-Broiled Hot Dogs will close its restaurant at Vista Village Shopping Center in Boise on Sept. 1, according to its Facebook page.

To all our friends and customers: Stan’s will be closing our full service restaurant in the Vista Village shopping Center on Sept 1. We will be relocating, but it will take some time so please watch for our new location. For our patrons who have been supporting our Cart, you all need to convince Jolene to keep that going at least during lunch time after Sept. 1. Thank you all for the past six plus years of patronage.

Owner Stan Linkowski opened the restaurant in 2007, offering hot dogs augmented by his secret, tasty Bronco sauce. If dogs are your thing, you can’t go wrong with the combo. In 2009, The Idaho Statesman’s restaurant critic wrote, “That sauce may seep into the part of your brain where food cravings hide.  Stan’s definitely clicked on a dormant hot dog hunger in me.”
