This is one of the best breakfast places in Pocatello. You can never go wrong when you come here. Make sure to get the cinna-twist.

I have eaten here a lot and just as with any place you may have a less than perfect experience with service or one part of the meal. I have only had one negative experience here and that was about 5 years ago. The food is good and fresh, bread and pies are excellent.The Oatmeal pie is a must try... More

Really? you could do better with using wonder bread. This is the kind of place old people go to eat crap they ate during the great depression. When all thier customers die off, I dont know how they will stay in buisness. I get the creeps just thinking about this place...i mean they probably dont put wierd stuff in the... More

My girl was craving steak and eggs. We moved to Pocatello recently and drive by this place all the time and it always looks busy which is a good sign. So we go in one Saturday morning for a good weekend breakfast. The atmosphere is dated but whatever, Pocatello as a whole is dated which is part of it's charm.... More

Butter Burrs is one of my family's "go-to" weekend restaurants. Very good home style menu and their desserts are the best. The twists, cinnamon, berry, and maple are worth a trip here all by themselves. The staff always makes you feel like family, and not the 'crazy uncle' type. Always worth the stop.

This is my first choice in Pocatello. The food is consistently good and plentiful. Their pie is the best in this town. I have never had a bad meal there and feel badly if someone has. It is homey and the service is great. Also their soup is wonderful. I often get a big order so that I can eat... More
