They specialize in hearty, tasty and down-home breakfast, plus their fried chicken for lunch/dinner is AWESOME. Basic American menu as well and some Mexican.

Good chicken.Salad from a bag..nothing else,just old lettuce.Potato salad from a tub made in a factory.Ugh...This is a big joke if it was voted (Best of Pueblo).It is a shame not to use local produce when it is in season.Keep your sides!Give me another piece of the chicken.

The Hen house is a great family style restaurant with great food, friendly staff and great service. Their specialty is fried chicken and they also have great green chili.

Server was friendly, food took forever. When we did get it, the food was sub-par at best. No real seasoning or unique flavors. I can make better at home. Decor was country and out-dated, even by my grandparents standards. Basic, bland, no frills, old people food.

I tasted their chicken at the Best of Pueblo awards and loved it. Nice size chicken legs. Wanted my husband to try it. He ordered the three piece dark chicken dinner for $2.00 off the price. He received two baby chicken legs which took one bite to eat and a thigh with a little more meat on. He said it... More

The Country Fried Steak lasted three meals and the fried Okra is some of the best I've had, nice and crispy. My wife was very satisfied with her chicken too. Good portions.

Spending time with family in Pueblo West and have had two breakfasts at this restaurant. Food and service were both excellent. Had huevos ranchers one day and biscuits and gravy with eggs another day. Awesome.

Excellent everything, especially the fried chicken. It always feels like going back in time to Grandma's on Sunday for chicken after church. Love this place!

We met relatives here for breakfast and it was a great choice. Our relatives took a while finding the restaurant and the staff was very welcoming and patient with us while we waited. Once everyone arrived, we ordered and the food came out quickly. Pancakes, omelets and biscuits were great. We didn't try the potato logs but they looked good... More

Went around 7pm..had to wait a bit, but the chicken was great. The mashed potatoes were instant,salad was out of .a bag (I could taste the weird flavor that you buy at grocery store ),the potatoes in the potato salad were hard and the coleslaw was lousy. I don't complain,but I don't think that it was worth the 20+ dollars... More
