Smitty’s Pancake & Steak House, Idaho Falls, ID

Smitty's Pancake & Steak House on Urbanspoon

This was a wonderful restaurant! It was a couple blocks from our hotel. The interior reminded me of some of the restaurants that I ate at regularly as a child as we traveled as a family. This visit engendered good memories.

I started with a cup of chili, and Raegan got a cup of broccoli cheese soup. Both were excellent! There were quite a lot of beans in the chili, but the spice heat was perfect. For my only gripe about the eating experience: the chili was not terribly warm thermal-wise. But I ate it.

Raegan got fried chicken and I got a chicken fried steak. Hers was a four-piece, so I got one of her pieces ( 🙂 ). Both meals were 10 out of 10. That was some darn fine fried chicken, fried perfectly. My CFS was not fork tender all the way, but the overall tenderness was great, and the flavor was outstanding. The breading was perfect. I got hash browns for my potato, excellent. I got extra gravy, perfect. Just a great meal, overall.

The meal included the drink (iced tea was outstanding) and dessert. We both got tapioca. Here was a new experience: our server asked if we wanted it cold (the way we have always had it before) or warm. We got one of each. Both tasted great. The warmness didn’t really add any flavor one way or the other.

Our meal was $34.42. We got a glass of wine with the meal (Copper Ridge White Zin!), and an extra side, so that added to the cost a bit. Service was right on the money.

So overall, a great meal. It took both Raegan and I back a bit in a very good way. Smitty’s is recommended if you are in Idaho Falls.
