We hear it (and shout it from the rooftops) all the time -- eat local. But what options are available? Many local options are available in Historic Downtown Idaho Falls. Whether it be a scoop of ice cream or a fine dining experience you’ll never forget, downtown has it all. Hop from restaurant to restaurant to satisfy all of your dining needs or sit down for a few hours at one of many favorites.

Food Delivery Services

A variety of meal delivery options are available in town, allowing you to eat from the comforts of your home. Most will even leave your food at the door, allowing for no physical contact. Services you might wish to use include:

  1. General Food Delivery - Many restaurants are offering delivery, meaning you don’t need to go through a third party service. Always check to see if the restaurant you’re wishing to order from offers delivery themselves. This way the money you’re paying for delivery goes straight into their pockets and not elsewhere.
  2. Curbside Pick-Up - Not willing to pay a fee for delivery? Curbside pick-up is your next best option. Almost all restaurants are offering this service as an option. Call ahead to place your order.
  3. Downloadable Apps - Since not all restaurants offer delivery through their restaurant, third party apps are the next best thing. App options include: Uber Eats, Grubhub, DoorDash and many more. Download your app of choice in your app store and scroll through the options.
