Idaho Falls - Help a Hound

Hey Hounds,

I'll be in Idaho Falls with the family later this month. I'd like some recs for breakfast places and brewpubs with good food (for dinner).

  1. Price range and cuisine preferences, and ages of your children will help narrow some recommendations, but here are a few to start:

      Thanks enbell. I was looking at Jalisco's Mexican Restaurant and heard good stuff about Brownstone. What do you think?

        I have not been to either - sorry! I have also heard good things about Brownstone though. I would not count on authenticity when it comes to Mexican cuisine in Idaho, but who knows. Their website menu is huge though (this could be a good thing or a bad thing). Have fun, and please follow up with results :)

        1. re: enbell

          I would recommend A Taste of Mexico for mole, seafood soups and pico de gallo. Most "authentic" Mexican restaurants lack these national dishes.

            My bad, they're called A Little Bit of Mexico.

    2. We're headed to Idaho Falls later this week and are planning on checking out Brownstone Brewing Co. Anyone have input for us? We'll report back with our experience.

      1. I just spend a week there, mostly business and a little bit of personal time. I've been traveling to Idaho Falls since 1990 and often despair of getting any good food. One place I frequent is Smitty's Restaurant for their German Pancakes - huge portions of authentic, real eggy, pancakes with confectionary sugar, butter and cooked apples. The other pancakes were pretty good as well, but I can't say the same for the omlets.
