Five of us were traveling from Denver to Montrose. Jan's was the lunch stop from first planning. There's nothing really special about the physical plant or the food. Its clean and filling. Service? Now there's something special. Our waitress made it fun-even when there was a inadvertent problem with the delivery of our dinners. This is a place that the... More

We had wonderful biscuits and gravy. Friendly people and a great view. We will be back to eat there on a return visit. Very good home style cooking.

Nice place. Clean, spacious, good service, large menu. But my $10 special burger was dry and contained a teaspoon of crumbled blue cheese and a couple of slices of bacon. The french fries are poor at the start and inedible by the end. The fish part of fish and chips was greasy and under-cooked. I would say that the food... More

We recently ate at Jan's while passing through Buena Vista. I couldn't resist the breakfast menu even though it was late in the day. I was not disappointed! The food was very good as well as the service. We will automatically stop in again if back in the area and I'm sure my next order will be breakfast. Jan's appears... More

Jan's is a good place for any of the three meals you may need in the day. The Breakfast menu is complete raging from eggs, meats, cakes and more. Lunch brings on full meals, burgers, Mexican and more. Diner brings about meals of much variety raging from burgers to steaks.

Good hearty breakfast before heading out for a day in the mountains. My coffee cup was always kept full and hot. Lot of locals in here. That's usually a good sign.

Jan's is always great... more food than you can eat, and for a great price. The breakfasts are wonderful, and HUGE! Lunch is super, and one can order from the great dinner menu as well. The quality is always the same... outstanding, and the people there could NOT be nicer. You just cannot go wrong when eating at Jan's. Therin

We stop at Jan's for breakfast each fall on our way to Santa Fe. We have not been disappointed with the food or the service. The hash browns are real potatoes nicely seasoned and cooked perfectly. The omelettes are filled to the brim and, again, cooked perfectly. Love the huevos rancheros--excellent green chili. Service is friendly and attentive, but not... More

Good experience. The place was crowded, they were holding space for an anticipated 60 person bus, so they were trying to accommodate the rest of us in the remaining tables. After a short wait, we were seated and served in a reasonable amount of time. I had the hot turkey sandwich and Key Lime pie. Too much turkey for me,... More
