“Its open late”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

I came in later in the day after spending some time sightseeing in the Challis National Forest. The restaurant was nice enough to let me place my order, take a shower then come back and pick it up right before they closed. I think they did charge a little more for take out though. The food was good and portions were sizable. The price seemed reasonable and the waitress was nice. If your staying at the motel you can't beet the location.

“If your staying at the motel is worth eating at”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

We ate dinner there once on our stay. My steak was quite good but the tater tots were greasy. I should have taken the offered baked potato. Husband had a Chefs Salad and kept saying how good it was. I'd go back there when in town. All of our friends ate breakfast there and raved about how good it was.

“Typical Small Town Restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2012

There are not a lot of options in Challis, so if you are passing through keep this in mind. However, the Village Inn restaurant is not a bad option for a quick meal. When we walked in everyone, including the waitresses, just stared and nobody acknowledged us but since we were hungry and there were no other options we stuck around. The waitress finally came over and was pleasant and we both ordered hamburgers. The food was what you would expect, nothing spectacular but not bad either. There were a lot of options and everything was reasonably priced.
