Where to Eat on Christmas in Idaho
Places to eat on Christmas are just things you might not think about. The truth is that not everyone will be home with family. Here's a list of places open on Christmas in the Treasure Valley.
This article could assist well if finding yourself without a place to eat on Christmas. I spent a Thanksgiving night inside a Cracker Barrel after weather conditions didn't permit me to make the long distance drive. I had frozen pizza from the gas station one Christmas and missed the times on restaurants because I didn't have this information I'm about to share.
Make sure to call ahead and check official hours. Some locations are allowed to leave hours up to local management. If you're thinking of the higher end dining like Chandlers, make sure to call for reservations.
