I feel like today was made specifically for Idaho… because it’s National Tater Tot Day! We recently discovered the #1 family recipe in Idaho is actually tater tots. So, of course, we’ve gotta celebrate this day. And, if anyone knows a little something about potatoes, it’s Idahoans.

National Tater Tot Day, not to be confused with National Tater Day (in March & August), is every February 2nd.

National Today says, "Your love of tater tots likely stems from elementary school (with a little help from the 2004 classic film “Napoleon Dynamite”). However, there’s far more to these little nuggets of potato than that. Did you know they’re considered “fine dining”? At upper-echelon restaurants all across the U.S., you’ll find tater tots on the menu, right next to foie gras."

Interesting. I did not know that. Regardless, join us in celebrating National Tater Tot Day by eating tater tots and maybe even watching Napoleon Dynamite! We've listed a bunch of the most popular places for tater tots in the Boise area down below.

Many of these businesses have locations all throughout Boise, Meridian, and Nampa – and when we created the list we weren't just pulling from our own opinions, we largely checked out a bunch of Google and Yelp reviews to see what you think. (Y'all have nothing but amazing things to say about these places.)
