“Great place & an original!”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

North Hi-Way Cafe rules when it comes to great staff and traditional prices. I remember my aunt working here when I was little, and know we take my nieces here. Great food, cooked fresh and prices keeping you going back. Seating is tight, but only a little wait til next table opens up. You have to try North Hi-Way!

“Easy Peasy”
Reviewed November 19, 2011

Just passing through but looked into TripAdvisor for a good meal and you guys delivered again. Yes, this is an old fashioned restaurant like I remember as a kid. Dependable waitress. Bunch of local men eating together at a table in the back. Coffee was prompt, meal was well portioned and good. Price was right. Couldn't ask for more.

“Good home cooked meals!”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Stopped in 20the minutes before closing and the waitress acted like we were her first customers of the day. The food was freshly made and delicious. I understand that it can be hard to get a table certain times of the day. It is an old cafe but is clean.

“Finest Fare in I.F.”
Reviewed September 1, 2011

No trip to Idaho Falls is complete without a meal at this historic establishment. For more than 75 years (I have been going for only 20 of those) this greasy spoon has been serving classic Idaho meat-and-potatoes (and pie) cuisine along the Old Yellowstone Hiway. Excellent breakfasts and wonderful dinners make two visits in a single day de rigour for the Idaho Falls cognoscenti.
Expect pleasant but brisk truck-stop-trained service and fresh-from-the-stockyard beef. I'll see you there.
