Adequate place to rest and refuel

Not the best Mexican food I have tasted, but quite adequate when you are traveling and just want to stop by for a quick lunch or dinner. The menu is extensive, covering not only the traditional Mexican specialties, but generic American cuisine. This is a large place with a full bar. Some food was... read more

What a way to start your day in the mountains! Coffee your way, and a great breakfast for the calories you need for the rest of the day. The omelettes are amazing, country fried steak is delicious and their 2 egg/meat/hash browns are always a hit! I've eaten here several times and taken many guests and they've never disappointed!

Great place to stop and eat if you are passing through or visiting Buena Vista. Friendly atmosphere in a fun rustic setting. Good price and large amount of food.

Rustic decor, Mexican food and burgers - many options; good service but a bit slow; kid friendly. We had the chili dogs, the mild chili was a bit too spicy for me. Not many options in the area, so we were happy with our find.

Stope here for breakfast driving from Salida, CO to Parker, CO. The sweet Amanda was a very competent and friendly server. I ordered a half of the Colorado breakfast and it was about three tines what I could eat for breakfast. Keep in mind when ordering to portion sizes are huge. Was also very good.

I'm from Indiana, but this is the third time I have wound up at the Coyote Cantina while riding motorcycles in the mountains. My huevos rancheros were great for breakfast. One friend had the early bird special which was very good and a large meal for the price and the other had their biggest breakfast. It was huge, but good... More

This used to be a good place to stop on the way west from Colorado Springs. Unfortunately, it appears to be way understaffed now, so service is very bad. We stopped in Sunday morning for breakfast. The place was moderately busy, but we were seated immediately and saw many open tables. We knew something was up when we saw several... More

We left Monarch Pass just a few minutes after 8 and the gift shop lady recommended this. We were very well taken care of and the food was good. They ran out of queso so it must be good ;)
