Dinner in Elko? Breakfast in Twin Falls? and lunch in West Yellowstone?
This July we are driving from Carson City (NV) to, perhaps, Twin Falls (ID) in a day, taking Hwys 80 and 93. A long day. And the next day we will head up hwys 84, 88, 15 and 20 through West Yellowstone on our way to Tower Junction/Roosevelt.
Anyone have a recommendation for spots between Winnemucca and West Yellowstone? We are especially interested in a good local lunch or dinner place in Elko, a dinner or breakfast gem in Twin Falls, a lunch place in West Yellowstone and any suggestions for Yellowstone Park. Hints on other fabulous spots along the way are welcome, too!
Try the Buffalo Cafe in Twin Falls. It is in the industrial part of Old downtown. I grew up in Twin, and moved to LA, but the Buffalo still is in my memory as a great breakfast. Biscuits and country sausage gravy used to be the bomb.

About a year ago while visiting Yellowstone, before entering the park we went to Eino's- a cool little spot. Local beef, where you cook it yourself on 2 grills in the back. Had a great porterhouse. If you have no problem preparing the steak, you won't be disappointed. Salads and sides are prepared by the proprietor, a nice woman- forgot her name.
A short drive to the Western YS entrance, a couple of miles north- I think off 287.
