My buddy & I go to the Lunch Box quite often for breakfast. We've never had a bad meal and their selection is extensive. Their bacon is the best. One day we were later than usual so we opted for the lunch menu. The pastrami...More

We are a small breakfast, lunch & BBQ restaurant serving made from scratch hotcakes, fresh baked goods, homemade soups, salads and 3 BBQ sauces. We started out as a deli, one year later we added BBQ, 3 years later we added breakfast. As we say, other BBQ restaurants have come and gone since 2003 all claiming to have the best BBQ in the Lewiston, Clarkston Valley. Here at the Lunch Box BBQ we like to let our customers be the judge of that. Our motto is we keep our customers happy, they keep us in business. We have been saying that for over 13 years.
