Biscuits and gravy, can't miss!

I never turn down the opportunity to have breakfast at Starvn' Arvin. They have giant biscuits smothered in great gravy, I have that with eggs, hash browns and bacon. What a treat. The service is always fast and friendly. Well worth a stop for breakfast although my wife usually gets a sandwich... read more

Wanted to try something new on the last day we were there. The staff was nice. My husband ordered the biscuits and gravy it was pretty good he really enjoyed it. My son ordered the pancakes and they were good. They were not rubbery like most places. Now I ordered the French Toast and the bread was way to thick!... More

For $6 I got 2 plates of food. The biscuits n gravy were phenomenal and during our 5 days stay in Montrose, we managed to stop in twice. Can't wait for our next time

Friendly waitstaff [see above.] Great biscuits and fine breakfast that will assure that you won't need another meal until dinner! If then. Food comes quickly and is always tasty. Diner-sih to be sure, but isn't that what we're looking for at breakfast????

Expect very large portions at Starvin' Arvins. I was thinking I'd get something small, so I ordered in the $6 and below range. I ended up with a full plate entrée and one of the largest cinnamon rolls ever constructed. I can't complain. It was tasty and cheap, and the service was regular and attentive. Some entrées even come with... More

Overall, this was a good place to eat. Plate portions were huge. We actually split a breakfast and it was more than enough for 2 people. The waiter was a little "chilly" to start, but warmed up and when we returned the next morning, he was great. Prices are good too. The homemade cinnamon buns were to die for! I'd... More

We went for breakfast while driving through Montrose and it was better than we expected. The service was friendly and our waiter kept our coffee cups full. He apologized about the coffee being so strong - he said their coffee pot was "acting up", however, we thought the coffee was perfect the way it was. The servings are huge, so... More

I have to admit I'm a little leery of local diners - I've probably watched too many episodes of Restaurant Impossible. But when we found ourselves in the road passing through Montrose, we stopped here for lunch instead of the usual fast food chain. The kitchen looked clean and the restrooms were clean. Our waitress was pleasant and our family... More
