“BEST FOOD IN EMMETT!! FRESH FOOD!”
Review of JD's Cafe

JD's Cafe
Ranked #8 of 33 Restaurants in Emmett
Cuisines: Barbecue
Description: Restaurant was recommend by a couple of local residents. We had the BBQ Tri-Tip Sandwich and the BBQ pulled pork sandwich. Both were excellent. Included a side (about 7 to choose from) BBQ beans were fantastic as they add BBQ pulled pork to the beans, and the cole slaw was delicious. Very clean, easy parking, excellent service. Will go back again - It is a beautiful side trip between Ontario, OR and Nampa, ID. Take Exit 9 off Hwy 84 - follow signs to Emmett. Once in Emmett, ou can continue on secondary highway to get to Nampa and back to Hwy 84. "We also took the time to walk around the town and was quite impressed. Nice shops and very friendly town.

“BEST FOOD IN EMMETT!! FRESH FOOD!”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

They work hard and 6 days a week from 6:30 am to 4 or 5:00 pm. Jessica those are long days! They have espresso drinks and great coffee also. I talk to the owners and staff a lot, and I used to work at a restaurant. So I know it is stressful and you are on your feet all day! You hope customers are in good moods. No need to be rude to waitress taking your orders treat others the way YOU would like to treated. They are trying to figure out summer hours possibly 11-2 for lunch and 5-7 for dinner.? They also mentioned it was hard for them to find any good help or enough help being Emmett is a smaller town. It is a family owned little cafe with friendly staff. I love the pulled pork sandwiches they pile the meat on any sandwich the french dip is so yummy! Thank you for being here to serve us great food and they are fast too.

“Best Restaurant in town! I'm not joking!!!”
Reviewed 10 May 2014

From the food, to the atmosphere, to the service, it's more than "good". J.D's is one of the awesomest restaurants I've ever eaten at.
The owners have a way of making you feel welcome and if you go in a stranger you most definitely will be leaving as a friend.
The food is soooo good. There are really no words to describe how amazing some of their meals are.
I definitely recommend J.D's Cafe!!!!

We have eating here a couple of times and it has always been great. The ribs are awesome and the tri tip sandwiches are very good. The service has always been great. Just a down home friendly atmosphere.

“good food, decent service, never open”
Reviewed 1 May 2014

I have eaten here an handful of times and each time was pleased with the food. The service was okay. The biggest problem is that I live in Emmett and literally 9 out of 10 times that I drive by they aren't even open. I don't even see the point to having a restaurant anymore when every time customers go to buy food, they aren't there.
