More restaurant than lounge (during day), good for families

We had a late breakfast here. The food was very good. They actually know how to do crispy bacon! The owner stopped by our table and introduced herself. The coffee was great. OK, I know this is a bit picky, but I really dislike the little cups of half & Half that many restaurants put on the table (I mean,... More

We live in Buena Vista and because we are not recognized as locals we don't get great service. We notice that the "locals" get friendly service. Breakfast is pretty good but dinner is not worth the stop. They also close earlier in the evening than their sign says if they don't feel like they are busy enough so call ahead.

We stopped in for breakfast on our way out of town. Looked like a local hangout for breakfast and from what I gathered it is run by Jan and her daughters. We had a bacon, avocado, and cheese omelet and corned beef hash with eggs, hashbrowns, and smothered in green chili. Both dishes were plentiful and delicious but nothing spectacular.... More

This is a great, locally owned restaurant with great food (especially the freshly flown in fish from Alaska for Friday's fish fry) with great home made and exotic pies. Great staff. Friendly, helpful and quick to serve.

a local stated "if you leave here hungry it's your own fault!" Well when two teenagers can't finish their plates, this is correct. Great food, good service in a relaxed atmosphere. Can't wait to go back in the future.

Jan's is a good place to meet friends and or just enjoy a good meal. Very friendly staff who go above and beyond. Many different items for a variety of tastes. Their tenderloins are very good. They have a good election for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Well worth the stop for any meal

There are no restaurants in DFW that stands equal to Jan's. I can attest to that as I live in DFW and am always traveling to this area. Sure you can drop a 100.00 on a meal but what about the service. Jan's service in second to none. Jan's hospitality cannot be beaten anywhere. I love Jan's. I love the... More

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
