Hey guys,

The wife and I will be making a move to Idaho Falls in 2017, and would love to hear of some good places to eat that AREN'T chain restaurants. We love to go out to eat, but we are not a fan of typical chain places. We love all kinds of food. So I'd love to hear of some good places in the IF/Ammon area


Thank you so much for any and all recommendations

Doc Mallow,
Be sure to read through this thread:

//www.city-data.com/forum/idaho...staurants.html

Not sure where you are from, but folks from some areas with great cuisine may find certain areas lacking in our local offerings. Nonetheless, there are many good restaurants, and even a few very good ones.

Many are listed in the linked thread.

Arugula Deli -- overall favorite restaurant in town, gets super busy at lunch so get there early. Fresh, well-crafted meals
Republic -- tapas (small plate) restaurant. great date spot. pretty inventive menu.
Abracadabra's - best breakfast/lunch spot in town IMO (not open for dinner)
Tandoori Oven -- best Indian food around
Ming's -- best Chinese restaurant
Firehouse Grill -- best sports bar, excellent happy hour specials
Rizo's Pizza -- good brickoven pizza
North Hi-Way Cafe -- good, consistent, cheap breakfast and lunch
Bee's Knees -- totally underrated restaurant, wonderful food
Smitty's Pancake House -- HUGE pancakes, good service, convenient location
Stockman's -- one of the few steakhouses in town, never been disappointed
Sandpiper -- good, fresh fish and steaks. good lounge area for cocktails. gets super busy
Celt -- only Irish pub in town. pretty good food, pretty good bar. live music on the weekends
D'Railed -- great food. mixed reviews online, but I've always been satisfied
Sandwich Tree -- huge subs, freshly sliced meat. gets super busy during the lunch rush
Snake Bite -- make sure to bring cash.
Jaker's -- excellent salad bar to go along with pretty good entrees. small local chain


there are plenty of others, but these are my favorites off the top of my head

Wow, tmp4 -awesome! We should start a new thread from that.

Dr. Marshmallow, Welcome to the thread. I join Retired in Ammon in asking where you are in general and what kind of food do you and your wife like? I'll save my suggestions until I know for what you are looking.
//www.city-data.com/forum/idaho...urants-do.html

That thread was started for restaurants only, but we all get mixed up and use both.

May I ask if you will be joining our healthcare community or do you have a Ph.D you'll utilize at a local business? Feel free to ask us other questions if we can help.

That's a good list, but I must add to it. Riverside Deli is good for sandwiches and soup, Franklins Cheesesteaks, Lucy's for great pizza, best Mexican is Jaliscos.

Since we don't know your general region currently some things may or may not pertain.

I'm would add Kneaders. It's a small but growing regional chain.

Geraldine's is a bakery in Ammon that serves some unique things for lunch. They don't close until 8:00 p.m. but they don't have a different menu of which I'm aware.

Cleosmom, what is the name of the bakery/eatery you ate at downtown? I always flip the words in the name given other similar bakeries in different states. Also, what is the address? I've seen that question asked everywhere. Thanks
