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!

Thanks!

    Hi-

    Elko would be covered on the Southwest board, please feel free to post a query on Southwest for the Nevada portion of your road trip.

        But I'd still love to hear about Twin Falls, if anyone has any ideas.
        Thanks.

          In Winnemucca you want to eat at the Martin Hotel. Classic Basque food. A must stop.

          Don't know anything in Twin Falls but would love suggestions- we're driving through there 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.

          When I make the trip from CA to West Yellowstone, I have two "must stops". I always pay my respects to "White King" at the Commercial Hotel in Elko, usually at lunch, and I always have a steak at Eino's.

            Sounds like some good spots. Thanks so much!

            If anyone else has some other ideas, I welcome them. We aren't leaving until the 11th of July.
