Lots of variety for everyone. Breakfast served all day, huge cinnamon rolls. My husband got a steak, my sons got chicken fingers and pancakes and I got eggs and bacon. Everything was good.

We stop at Jan's almost every time we drive through Buena Vista. It's homey and local. Even when it has been packed, we've been seated and served quickly. The service is personable and attentive and the food is tasty. Today I had the soup, salad, dinner roll combination. The dinner roll was fresh and fantastic!

The food was really, really good, and so was the service. We stopped in on our way through town, for dinner, and were very glad we did.

This restaurant had great service and was full of locals. It gave the feel of the town and had many choices to order from. I chose a breakfast burrito which was smothered in green chili sauce. It was pretty good!

Plenty of locals here. The reason is good food. Variable service. I've eaten here twice this summer and the service was good once and just OK the second time. The food is a dependable mix of American and some Mexican. Good breakfast with much coffee. I shall return.

Every year we go there for a dinner once or twice. Food is not bad, and surprisingly, they have great burgers.

We needed to eat and just picked Jan's at random. Good food for a good price. They were especially busy at lunchtime so our meal took a while to arrive but was fabulous when it came. I had the fish and chips and it was cooked to perfection. My husband had the chicken fried steak and it too was done... More

We were passing through and noticed all of the cars around Jan's. Decided it must be a good place! We were not wrong. It is old-style and offers homestyle cooking. Although it was lunchtime, we decided to have breakfast, since it is offered all day. Pancakes are plate-size, and server was kind enough to tell us that when ordering. Belgian... More
