These 8 Restaurants In Idaho Don’t Look Like Much… But WOW, They’re Good

Hidden gems are where it’s at. You know the places I’m talking about – those small-town favorites that every local knows about, but the rest of us have never heard of. Places where the food is radical, but you might pass by if you didn’t know better. Sure, top-floor restaurants, scenic views, mind-blowing steakhouses, and elegant ambiances are all wonderful additions to the traditional dining experience, but when it comes right down to it, you choose a restaurant for the food…so that food should be amazeballs, am I right?

Based on your recommendations, we found a few of Idaho’s hidden gems that are quietly serving up some of the Gem State’s most memorable cuisine in the most unassuming of locales. Check them out!

These restaurants are proof that you can’t judge a book by its cover, but with so many small towns in our state, I know there are dozens more foodie gems to be explored! As you dine your way through Idaho this season, if you stumble upon any other hidden gems, be sure to let us know so that we can continue this series with a Part Two.
