ANNIS — Simple, clean and delicious. Those are the three words that best describe Teton Bagel, found in a food truck at a farm outside of Rigby.
“All of our bagels are handmade. All of them are new from scratch. We get a lot of the ingredients from the farm here (by the food truck), so all of the beef comes from the cows,” said Ryan, owner of Teton Bagel. “Everything is made to order so nothing is pre-cooked so we make it as soon as you order. It’s always fresh.”
Ryan said he first started out delivering bagels. Then, about four months ago, the food truck started off the East Menan Lorenzo Highway. The food truck is black with white lettering and has a bagel in the shape of the Teton Mountains on it.

Teton Bagel serves breakfast and lunch.
One of the most popular items on the menu is called the “Teton Breakfast,” which is served on a spiced bagel. The everything bagel contains sesame, poppy seeds, garlic, onions, salt and sunflower oil. The breakfast bagel consists of hash browns, eggs, bacon, cheese, tomatoes, avocado and arugula.
Another point is the bagel with sausage, egg and cheese.
Ryan said he wanted to start Teton Bagel because there weren’t many bagel options in the area.
“Rigby doesn’t really have breakfast options outside of the gas station, and Rexburg didn’t really have bagels,” he said.
The idea for Teton Bagel came in part from his mother.
“Growing up, my mom was a culinary arts teacher, so she taught me how to cook, and I took the recipe from her bread she baked and some other breakfast and bagel recipes I found online and pureed them and came out with these and started delivering and then saved enough money and built this (food truck),” he said.
Ryan named one of the menu items after himself. It’s called “Ryan’s Favorite” and he said it’s super easy. It has bacon, egg and cheese on an asiago cheese bagel.
You can even just go and get a plain bagel with classic cream cheese.
“We also have garlic cream cheese. In the summer we’ll get fresh blueberries and we’ll have blueberry and blueberry cream cheese,” Ryan said.
Vegetarian dishes are available every week. Teton Bagel also offers gluten-free products.
Ryan added that Teton Bagel can also cater and has a different menu.
“For catering and other events that we have over the summer, we’re going to be hosting nights with live music, and we’re going to be doing cinnamon bagels, and we’re also going to have cinnamon bagel bites that come with the cream cheese frosting on top of what.” great is good,” he said.
Teton Bagel is located at 3849 East Menan Lorenzo Highway. It is open Tuesday to Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
