9 Restaurants In Idaho Straight Out Of The Wild, Wild West

Idaho is renowned for its authentic Western history as one of the last frontiers in the country, but recreating those experiences doesn’t stop at visiting a museum or ghost town. I’m not talking tacky, or kitschy Smoking Guns-themed watering holes — I’m talking the authentic, down-to-earth rustic atmospheres you’ve grown to know and love which might just let you step back in time and feel like Clint Eastwood could charge through the doors at any time. Whether in the form of authentic tack hanging on the walls and historic ranching decor, or maybe some woodsy, rustic vibes with just a little bit of line dancing thrown in, these western restaurants have a little something for everybody. Fortunately, since we’ve featured many of these on our “best” lists before, you know that the food is going to be fantastic too!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
