Some of our and our customers favorite dining options in Emmett.
Surrounded by barren plains and hills, Emmett has a picturesque landscape. It’s one of Idaho’s smaller towns, giving it a quintessential country/Western feel. The town has a history spanning all the way back to the 1860s when pioneers settled the area thanks to the discovery of gold in the Boise Basin.
For another great breakfast diner, the Blue Ribbon certainly will not disappoint. With covered outdoor seating, this is one of the best places you can go to start your day, especially on the weekends when they have their breakfast specials. They also crank out amazing burgers and sandwiches. The mushroom and swiss is hands-down the best you can find in Emmett, and their Mediterranean-inspired grilled cheese is mouthwatering.
Little Italy serves some of the freshest sandwiches in the entire Boise area. They use Boar Heads meats and offer a variety of breads. For hungry stomachs, the Big Nasty will set you right. It comes with bologna and “everything but the kitchen sink” as they claim. The soups here are another focus. The creamy potato is always a safe bet, but be sure to try to their signature Turkey Fiesta. You're sure to Enjoy the "Main Street" ambiance as you dine.
For great Mexican food in a beautiful restaurant, you can’t do much better than La Costa. The ambience here is bright and very lively, especially the waitstaff. Crowd favorites are the Carne Azada and the fajitas. They also do great torts (Mercian sandwiches). If you’re feeling brave try the spicy lengua torta with beef tongue. They even offer to-go services for great food on the run!
This place is awesome for breakfast. The Hawaiian Omelette is one of their staples, and their biscuits are nothing but doughy perfection. With signs like “hot beer, lousy food, bad service, welcome” and “coffee, chocolate men, the richer, the better”, the ambiance here is definitely informal. But all jokes aside, this is a beautiful restaurant. The seating is old-fashioned hardwood and a perfect match to their paneled ceiling.
