We often visit Salmon, and have never eaten at Junk Yard Bistro primarily because the outside looks like a dive bar. However, after reading several Trip Advisor reviews, we decided to give it a go. While the food was not bad, the cook had way too many onions and bell peppers in the dish. My wife had the chicken curry... More

Our most favorite restaurant in Salmon ... we go there again and again when camping in the summer. The food is different from the ordinary and always tasty. The servings are generous - we often split something. The best potato salad! Many beer and wine choices and the prices are very reasonable. You can even purchase wine/beer to go! The... More

Passing though Salmon on a long road trip on a Sunday. I was hungry and figured there were not many dining choices in remote, small-town Salmon, Idaho. Pulled up Tripadvisor on my phone to see what my options were and found the Junk Yard Bistro (which is the same place as the Junkyard which is listed separately on TA for... More

Great service and great food! Got the junkyard a garlic burger and it was amazingly good. And the portion was huge, filled me right up. Even my friends wrap was big.

We took a motorcycle ride to Salmon and decided to stop at the Junk Yard Bistro based on reviews here. My husband had the red wine beef noodle bowl and it was a huge portion and he said it was delicious. I had the turkey, bacon, smoked gouda wrap. Really scrumptious and the side salad of pasta salad was topped... More

I'm usually not disappointed when something is this highly reviewed, but I wouldn't go back. To begin with, I got there just as they opened, and my server was not friendly and was borderline rude. I ordered a Bleu cheese buffalo sandwich and when I selected the side salad and asked for Bleu cheese, she informed me they only had... More

This place is retro chic, well maintained and provides a great atmosphere. The staff is really friendly and will talk to geezers. The food is first rate and eclectic.

Stopped in here after a rafting trip with some friends. The service was fast and friendly, the prices fair, the portions big, and the food delicious. None of us had anything left on our plates. Corkage fee if you bring your own wine.
