    I have a wheat allergy so severe that the tiniest crumb throws me into anaphylaxis, so I ask a lot of questions about how the food is prepared. I learned that here the fries have a dedicated fryer and the gluten free bread is toasted in a GF dedicated toaster. The GF pancakes are prepared on the same surface as the regular ones, but they will cook them on a different surface (such as a clean pan) if you request it. The food was okay and the service was fantastic! I would feel comfortable eating here again.

    Very low key, American Diner type restaurant. They have menus for people who want gluten free that highlight which dishes are gluten free, so you can see the whole menu but know which dishes are safe. They offer several breakfast options, sandwiches, burgers, steaks. I ordered an omlette with gluten free pancakes because I heard the pancakes were good. They really were! Our service was slow to start out but it picked up fast and our food arrived very quickly after we ordered.

    Food was excellent! Waitress was very attentive... making sure everything was safe. Would highly recommend Smitty's to anyone needing to be gluten free

    Our server was very knowledgable. The GF menu does highlight a few deep fried things, but she let us know there's no dedicated fryer, so we avoided the fries and tots and were fine. Not fast, but we prefer safe, so we entertained ourselves. The ribeye is fantastic. Not much on the kids menu is GF so I got a big rib eye steak and shared it with my youngest. They were knowledgable about cross contamination, the GF toast was tasty.

    Separate gluten free menu. Server asked cook about items for my added dairy allergy. She was very attentive and helpful. Food was truly gluten and dairy free. No cross contamination. I didn't get sick. Very pleasant experience.

    Good GF pancakes. My eggs were cooked perfectly. Our server was helpful & understood cross contamination. The GF menu made it easy to find something safe to eat. Great place to stop on the way to the airport.

    my pancakes were fantastic. they have a separate menu that's marked very clearly and has notes regarding GF items/prep. I gave 4 stars instead of 5 because the service was a little slow and our server didn't seem to fully grasp my concerns, plus my son's steak was way overdone, but it was a great find and if I'm ever in the area I'd definitely go back.

    One of the best parts of visiting the in-laws is having pancakes at Smitty's. They are fantastic! Never been ill (except for the sugar crash from too much syrup, but that's on me). I don't branch out from my pancakes and bacon, so I can't comment on anything beyond those, but they get those two spot on!

    Last reviewer must have had a bad waitress.... The syrup was gf and they will cook meat (sausage, bacon& ham are gf) on a dedicated grill. Pancakes were awesome!!!

    Smittys offered gf pancakes which were delicious - their own recipe. However the waitress said none of their syrups or their breakfast meats are gf so I ate dry pancakes and eggs. What's the point? Hoping I caught them on a bad day. No gf menu or options was given to me. Otherwise Smitty's is a legendary place to eat in Idaho Falls for the non-gf person.

    GF Pancakes were the absolute best we EVER had. Just like others we were waiting for the gluten affect because they taste just like regular pancakes...but it didn't happen. If your on a GF diet, but you crave the taste of food you grew up on then this place is worth the trip. We came from California!!

    I had to double check that my pancakes were gluten free. They have their own, from scratch, recipe. Very good. Plus they make all their own syrups.

    The kiddo and I needed someplace to have some breakfast while on the road and we decided, on a whim, to stop at Smitty's Pancake and Steakhouse. We figured we could at least get eggs. Let me tell you we were so excited to see that they offered GF pancakes. And we were even more excited (and overly stuffed) when we tasted the pancakes. I was so worried they had gluten in them they were so good! We didn't have any issues after eating there and we ate a LOT!
