I didn’t think I would I would make it to a diner in Idaho. I couldn’t seem to find any along our route that was open when we stopped, after stopping for the night in Twin Falls, Id. We stumbled upon Choate’s Family Diner in Jerome, Id.
Choate’s Family Diner Atmosphere: B
Choate’s Family Diner is an unassuming small building. It isn’t a big retro, shiny diner, but it does look like a small-town diner. Inside are plenty of booths, tables, and a full-length bar. Idaho doesn’t have a mask mandate, and I was the only one wearing a mask, including staff.
Choate’s Family Diner Coffee: B
The coffee at Choate’s Family Diner was good. It wasn’t anything unusual, but it was brewed hot and fresh.
Choate’s Family Diner Food: A
Choate’s Family Diner menu has everything you expect a greasy spoon, no-frills diner to have. There are plenty of omelets, steak, and eggs, and sandwich options too. If you’re looking for a healthier option, you probably won’t find it at Choate’s Family Diner. I was craving steak and eggs, so I decided to order that. It came with eggs (I chose scrambled), steak (I wanted rare), toast (sourdough bread), and hashbrowns or fried potatoes (I chose fried potatoes).
The entire meal was excellent. Everything was cooked as asked. The steak was one of the better diner steaks I’ve had.
Choate’s Family Diner is also known for its meat lovers hashbrowns and I got a half order that. I can’t even imagine what a full order was like! The three meats hash comes with green peppers, onion, shredded cheese, ham, bacon, and sausage. If you stop at Choate’s Family Diner, I highly recommend it as it was delicious.
Choate’s Family Diner Service: A
The hostess was friendly and our food was ready when we ordered it.
Choate’s Family Diner Cost:
For the meat lovers hashbrowns (which realistically was another meal), steak and eggs, and coffee, it was $23.
