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

If you want a big family meal this is the place to go. I had the homemade meat loaf plate and another friend had the turkey and dressing platter. Just like being at your grandmothers place. It was great food and more that you could eat in one sitting.

A pleasant surprise when we stopped in. Great breakfast with real hashbrowns (not the frozen stuff) and good selections on the menu. Judging by the crowd this is a popular place with locals and we met Jan - who signed one of her recipe books (for sale) - and made us feel at home. Burgers and steaks also great. Forget... More

Ate breakfast there after camping in the area for a few days. Really good home cooked food. Definitely a must if you like diner food. Large portions, friendly service, and great prices. Don't pass it up.
