Have you ever had a mean so good you swear it could go on 'Beat Bobby Flay' and actually walk away victorious against the famed Chef?

I know I have. Good news is you don't have to go very far to find meals that could compete on the Food Network show, and definitely have potential to be declared the winner when it's all said and done.

I'm a big fan of the show, and despite liking Bobby, I can't help but to always root for the competitor. I want to see the Underdog celebrating a victory. I want David to beat Goliath. The Bad News Bears to beat...whatever team they were playing.

Nothing is more disappointing than seeing the competing Chef put together a mouth-watering signature dish, only to somehow be bested by Bobby. It's a let down, and you can't help but to feel bad for them. That's their livelihood. The signature meal that makes them money, and Bobby comes in and puts it to shame in a couple of minutes. Bummer.

There are no shortage of talented Chefs in Boise and across the Treasure Valley. Boise is home to many James Beard nominated Chefs. James Beard Awards recognize exceptional talent in Chefs, Restauranteurs, and other members of the Culinary field. The award also honors those in the field who have demonstrated a commitment to racial and gender equity, community, sustainability, and a culture where all are able and welcomed to thrive.

Here are 5 Chefs in Boise that I am confident could Beat Bobby Flay with their signature dishes.

Put any of those dishes against Bobby Flay's and I think Boise walks away with the win. Are there any other chefs, restaurants, or certain meals in the Boise area (or greater Treasure Valley or Idaho) that you'd bet would beat Bobby in a head-to-head contest? Comment or send me a Tweet!

I'd love to see some of these local Chefs and restauranteurs get their chance to shine on the national stage and take on Bobby. We can show the country that Idaho is much more than potatoes.

Now that we've seen some local restaurants that would fare well on Beat Bobby Flay, let's take a look at some Idaho Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives that Guy Fieri has already visited in Idaho.

Idaho Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives Guy Fieri Has Visited

Guy Fieri is no stranger to Idaho. The California native has made several stops in the Gem State. Let's check out where he's been.

Now that we've seen where he's already been. Let's go over some local Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives we think he should go to next in Idaho!

Idaho Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives Guy Fieri Should Try

Guy Fieri has been to Idaho a few times, making stops in Boise, Meridian, and Coeur d'Alene. In case you skimmed over it, you can read more about where he's visited above, along with pictures and descriptions.

Here are six places I would recommend to Guy if he were to come back to Idaho, which he totally should. He lives in Northern California, it's not that far away! Just a couple of hours.

In honor of him coming back to our beloved state, we will even temporarily change out name to: Guydaho. How could you turn that offer down?

Guy would have an absolute blast at those restaurants. However, these next five restaurants he would absolutely hate. If you watch Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives and know about Guy's likes and dislikes, you'll totally get it.
