Some of our and our customers favorite dining options in Mountain Home.
With its modest beginnings as a post office on a railroad line, Mountain Home is a quaint town in Idaho with a Western feel. There are plenty of outdoor recreation options in Mountain Home, as it’s home to several parks and dams. Lined with houses and strip malls, the downtown area is very unassuming. However, the restaurants here are excellent. From Thai food to classic American bar food, there’s something in Mountain Home to satisfy every palate.
Known to the locals as “The Thai Truck”, Chai-Yo Thai is the place to go to in Mountain Home for a quick bite of something spicy to eat. With most meals under $10, you’ll be surprised with the portion sizes. One bite of their spring rolls, and you’ll be hooked just like the locals. Other crowd favorites here are the Chicken Pad Thai and the Beef Bulgogi. The Thai iced tea is their signature drink and perfect for washing down their spicy chicken curry.
Although Frankie’s does a lot of things right — the Texas sauce, the fry sauce, the french fries — their chili is on point. The chili dogs and the the chili fries are out of this world, and the portion sizes are humongous. For their burgers, the bleu cheese burger is stunning, and the avocado Swiss burger is one of the most unique hamburgers you’ll come across. What's even better about this place, is that the staff is genuinely down-to-earth friendly, and always make you feel at home.
For some of the tastiest tacos in Mountain Home, Los Pinos is the go-to place. The food and the ambiance here is authentically Mexican. The walls are adorned with sombreros both big and small, and there’s no shortage of Mexican flags. Their signature dish, the Three Amigos, is perfect. The shredded beef is incredibly tender, and unlike other Mexican places, the refried beans and rice are not watered down. No corners are cut here — just great Mexican food with one of the nicest waitstaffs in town
If you’ve never had a sourdough pancake before, head to Manhattan Cafe as soon as possible. The ambiance here is gorgeous. Full of dark brown hues and a brick interior behind their breakfast bar, this place screams New York class. They open at 6am and close around 2pm, so get here early for a great breakfast. Whether the drip coffee or their signature Moca Loca, the coffee here is just as good as the food... And you can trust us, that's really saying something! As the food is out of this world.
