When I got inside Hugo's Deli this Friday afternoon, it was swarmed with local workers on lunch break and other people looking to get an early start on the Memorial Day weekend. But the counter help was moving the line at the counter quickly, and I was able to order in no time. Of course I had the chicken salad sandwich and seeing the homemade deli fries just coming out of the vat made me more hungry, and I ordered a half a pound of those, too. With a bottle of Dasani Lemon Water, my meal cost a little over $8, and I found a seat to dig into my meal.
My chicken salad sandwich was yummy served on a wheat roll with lettuce, tomatoes, and pickles. The homemade deli fries ($3.39 a pound) were cut in uneven pieces with the peels still on and were very hot and so good. The homemade fry sauce enhanced the fries' flavor even more. I was very full after this feast and was able to go shopping without pigging out on the samples that are scattered throughout the market that torture most shoppers as they are going through the store.
Hugo's has a huge menu to choose from such as fried chicken and many sandwiches. There are vegetarian choices along with picnic meals with the fried chicken. Some of the sandwiches have funny names such as the "Bob and Myrna (corned beef and pastrami)" and "The Grinder (an Italian sub) which brings back memories of how we used to call sub sandwiches grinders in Rhode Island when I was growing up.
The service at Hugo's is fast and courteous, and the manager was asking how everyone was during the busy lunch rush and fit everyone's needs for side orders and food. Hugo's is located in two locations in Boise. The location I visit often is on Overland and Five Mile Roads heading towards Meridian and near Fred Meyer's, one of our popular grocery and department stores. The other location is on Broadway Avenue near Boise State University.
Hugo's is open daily and is well-worth a visit whenever you are in the Boise area.
