5 Awesome Local Restaurants For Take-Out/Delivery in Idaho Falls

If you can’t decide between a night in or a night out, have both by ordering take-out or getting one of your favorite meals delivered to you. Ordering out may not be feasible for every night, but occasionally ordering out is a treat everyone deserves. Enjoying a meal from your favorite restaurant is a great way to support local businesses and stimulate the economy...while satisfying your appetite. If you are in the Idaho Falls area, try one of these delicious restaurants for your next take-out or delivered meal.

Scotty's Drive-In

Nothing says old-school quite like Scotty’s Drive-In. The gumball machine, red vinyl seats, Pepsi board menu, and the neon lights at night tempt passersby to stop in for a retro meal and experience. It’s especially hard to pass up during one of their classic car shows.

Scotty’s Drive-In has a seating area inside, but you can drive up and order and eat from your car as well. They also offer pick-up or delivery through GrubHub. If you are craving the Great Scott, Super Scott, Bacon Scott, or another one of their delicious burgers or sandwiches, get one to go! Each “Scott” burger is a little different, but each one features extra lean, choice beef, thousand island dressing, and fixings.

If you want an extra treat, be sure to check out their side orders and shake flavors. Their sides are good enough to order on their own. They include fries, tater tots, cheese curds, jalapeno poppers, and buttered mushrooms. If it’s a vegetable, it must be healthy, right? As for their shakes… well, there are so many of them, you’ll have to come back again and again just to try a new flavor every time. You can’t go wrong with classics like strawberry or oreo cookie, but there are also flavors like marshmallow, Heath, Kit Kat, and plenty more! No order is complete without a delicious shake or malt!

Papa Tom’s Pizza

With house-made dough and sauces, you truly can’t get a Papa Tom’s Pizza anywhere else than in Idaho Falls. Pizza is a classic delivery or take-out meal and for good reason. It’s an easy meal to eat anywhere. You don’t need utensils or even a plate--though napkins are encouraged. Plus, pizzas are easily customizable so you can get something everyone will like, even for those who are gluten-free.

Customers of Papa Tom’s can choose between an extra-large, large, medium, or individual-sized pizza. They have specialty pizzas listed on their menu, or you can choose your own toppings. Some of their specialty pizzas are the three cheese, Tim’s buffalo chicken, chicken bacon ranch, and vegetable delight. If you decide to choose your own toppings, you might be surprised by some of their options, like linguica, shrimp, and smoked oysters.

If you aren’t in the mood for a pizza, Papa Tom’s also serves specialty sandwiches or wings. It may be tough to decide which sandwich you want, though. They have roast beef sandwiches, Philly cheesesteak, BLT, and even a sandwich with crab! The wings they serve are fat-free, meaning they are not fried, and come with celery and ranch or blue cheese. You can decide between hot or BBQ wings.

Although Papa’s Tom Pizza is open for dine-in, you can still order take-out or have your pizzas delivered. No matter where you eat it, Papa Tom’s is delicious! Follow them on Facebook for updates and drool-worthy photos!
