Don't believe me? Look closely at the picture to the right...
The North Hiway Cafe touts itself as Idaho's oldest continuously running cafe and catering company, and when you walk in, you believe it. It looks old inside. It smells old inside (pie, bengay and dust) and their menu is practically chiseled in stone.
The food here is so so. The atmosphere is lacking, and by my observations the Senior menu is used more than any other part of the menu. (Senior equals 62 in this town... random number??)
The one good thing about this place?
However, I know people that have cleaned the place before, and they have some HORROR stories. Grease where there shouldn't be grease, new species of insects (think of cockroaches breeding with iguanas) and grossness all around.
So, is it scary? Probably. But it's an Eastern Idaho icon, so there's that. If you want to see a slice of Idaho Falls history, this should be on your list. However, maybe just to take pictures and jeer at the old folks. As a place to eat, I'd pass.
