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

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
