Store near Middle Fork put in

It was about half a dozen years ago.... We came through Boise to run the Middle Fork. Somewhere near the put in there was a big store that was a convenience store/gear shop on top of a pass. On the other side of the street there was a restaurant that had a hell of a reuben sandwich.

Where is this? I haven't been able to figure it out...

Thanks in advance.

-Dan

Sounds like Standley Idaho except it is not on top of a pass.

Stanley, Idaho.
On the other side of the pass from you/Boise.
Always a good place to stop or meet. Last year there was a new bakery that was really good.

Must be Stanley but I know nothing about what is in Lowman.

The market and the gas station/ c store is on the south side of the road.
the Mtn Village Motel and former restaurant on the north side next to a great river store - Riverwear.
Do not plan on eating at the restaurant at the motel. It used to be....not great but passable. Not it sucks so bad I can't even tell you. Everything appears to be microwaved or steam pots. No bueno.

Stanley Baking Company and Stanley Motel are great. Casino for steak and prime rib. Papa Brunees for pizza and subs is good and in Lower Stanley Bridge Street is pretty damn good too.

Yep, that is the spot! Somehow the memory of a pass was stuck in my head.

Thanks for the responses and the recomendation on the bakery!

As an aside, how far past the turnoff for the MF put in is Stanley?

I lived there for 3 summers.
Make sure you go to the casino club and tell John Grahm that Geicho sent you.

After driving all the way from Leavenworth the pass ( Banner Summit) would have seemed fairly close to Stanley. Turn off to Stanley is about 15 miles.
