Locals Favorite!

One of Buena Vista's oldest and best loved restaurants. Just ask the locals where to eat and Jan's will come up every time. Fast service, good food - great burgers, and even a glass of wine or beer with your meal. If you don't see someone you know then you are not a local! Say Hi to Jan - you... read more

Stopped here for breakfast on a recent motorcycle trip due to a friend's recommendation. Four of us ordered breakfast. Everything was delicious and the service was great. Will stop again when we are back in BV.

Been going here for years. Great service, good food, very generous servings. My favorite place in town for breakfast. Lunch and dinner menu is built around good old comfort foods you can't go wrong with. And the owner is very supportive of the community through fund raisers etc.

Ok, me and the family came in for the dinner. The place is a little run down. The host was a sweet young lady , who got our drinks then said that the waitress would be right with us. Well a middle age tattooed woman , smelling like a cigarette, then sat next to my husband then touch him a... More

I recently ate lunch at Jan's after a long morning of hiking. It really hit the spot. I had a club sandwich with fries and then we ate a delicious peace of raspberry rhubarb pie. The pie was really above and beyond what we expected . Try a piece! I have eaten breakfast at Jan's in the past and it... More

Out of all the places we ate at in Buena Vista, this was by far the best place to eat. Good food with a "down home" atmosphere.

Jan is a very nice person. A lady at the hot springs referred us to eat there. They serve home cooked pies, everyone is friendly, and the food is great.

The family and I stopped here for a late lunch today on our tour of the Rockies. Walked into a very friendly and welcoming staff. 4 year old son got a huge cup of crayons and paper while we got our drinks. Wife had 1/4 lb burger and fries which she enjoyed. I had the chicken fried steak sandwich with... More

We arrived just before lunch on a Friday. No problem getting breakfast items. Service was courteous and quick. The food arrived within minutes and was hot and flavorful. The prices were definitely reasonable and the facility was very clean. Over the years, we have eaten at Jan's Restaurant when she was in Woodland Park, Colorado, Florissant, Colorado and now Buena...

Jan's has a nice variety of sandwiches (for lunch) and entrees for dinner. The hot turkey sandwich was even made with fresh turkey breast sliced just for me. Friendly and excellent service as well. With breakfast served all day, you have to give Jan's a try.
