"If you're on US 20 in Idaho slow down near Idaho Falls and take Exit 310.The restaurant is part of what is currently KJ's Travel Center and it's definitely worth stopping! Mitchell's has apparently been around for years. Our waitress told us about coming there as a kid with her dad as well as the multiple ownership changes in the adjoining truck stop, which never affected the quality of food and service at the restaurant. Anything you might consider lacking in modern decor is immediately forgotten once you take your first bite of food, if not sooner. The place is clean and the seating is comfortable. The staff (of both the restaurant and travel center) and patrons are friendly, helpful, and great for people watching (as noted by another reviewer, Aimee C.). The food is beyond amazing and all homemade!
We had bowls of vegetable beef soup with lots of chunky veggies and tender beef. Seasoned perfectly. Yeast rolls nearly bigger than your head came with it. We added an order of fries because 1) we were in Idaho so we figured the ingredients must be fresh and 2) another reviewer (quoting Aimee C. again) said they "might be worth the drive from Salt Lake City." These fries are cut fresh every day and cooked to perfection (except we prefer a touch more salt) and served with fry sauce, which we were told is "an Idaho thing". It tasted great.
If veggie soup isn't your thing, don't worry. There are enough options/variety on the menu to satisfy almost any craving, from comfort food to salads or even nachos. Prices are very affordable especially when you see the portions and taste the quality. Servers are friendly and helpful.
Don't forget to look around the store before you leave. There's souvenir-type items, sodas, snacks (not that you'll want them after your meal), etc. The flavored popcorn (which is also colored according to flavor) caught our attention. We bought two flavors to bring back and share. The caramel apple (green and caramel colors) wasn't bad, but the huckleberry cheesecake (purple and cream colors) was outrageously good! Everyone in the office at work wants us to bring them more."
