My husband and I stopped at Jan's and had a wonderful experience. The place is not anything fancy, just a local restaurant. But, this is where Jan's differs. The chicken fried chicken was probably the best I have had and I have had a lot of it! The food was all home made and fresh. We took pies to eat... More

Biscuits and gravy appear to be the specialty - biscuits are homemade and the gravy is loaded with sausage. I was surprised that their waffles and corned beef hash are from a can - but apparently their pancakes are made at the restaurant and one of the other dinners with our party had ordered an oatmeal blueberry pancake the day...

Good place to eat. Burgers are a fave. Love that kids and senior menu is the same! My corn dog from the senior menu, with fries, was just what I needed! Many, many menu choices. The two burgers and salad that came to our table in addition to the corn dog looked good and were deemed really good by the... More

We ate here several mornings while in Buena Vista. It was within walking distance of our motel. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Service is fast. Most important, the food was delicious.

My husband stopped in for lunch and ordered 1/4 pound hamburgers each. Mine was the Santa Fe, my husband ordered a cheeseburger. They were frozen patties, didn't even fit the bun and mine was to have pepper jack cheese per the menu and it was left off. Yuck. I had sweet potatoe fries which were OK, nothing to write home...

We visited Jan's while on a day trip to Buena Vista on a Sunday drive . The entire town was packed with tourists and Jan's was busy as well. However we got seated immediately and had our order taken within minutes. My wife ordered the chicken fried steak sandwich and I ordered the pork tenderloin sandwich. Our food arrived quickly...

We make a point to go to Jan's every time we pass through! I had huevos rancheros this time. VERY good! Plate was huge. Enough to split with someone. Pancakes are even bigger! Definitely don't miss this one!

Just happened to stop by on our way out of Leadville. Great place for breakfast. Quick and very good, with large portions. Reasonably priced.
