We hit this joint as the crowds cleared away after the 4th of July parade. Mobs of people but worth the wait for the food (ordered at the counter and delivered by cheerful wait staff). Menu is limited but carefully prepared with a couple of nice specials. I got the last pulled pork sandwich and... read more

The people here are just wonderful. This place is emblematic of so much of what is right about Telluride. It just belongs here. The service people inside are so helpful and sweet, as well as sunny in general. This place just makes me happy. It is pet-friendly, as you will note immediately because there are almost always dogs sitting by... More

With plenty of seating both inside and out, you will work your way through the order line fairly quickly. The place is busy for a reason, as the food is terrific and the prices won't break the bank. A lot of locals eat here. The staff is super friendly and the service quick. We were there for breakfast but their... More

Based on previous reviews we were somewhat hesitant to come for breakfast. Other reviewers said the food was delicious but the wait and service might have been questionable. We arrived around 9:30am and there was a small line to order. It took us 5-10 minutes to get to the front. The seating was full but by the time we ordered... More

Wish we had eaten here before our last day. This would have been or go to for breakfast every morning.

Out of the restaurants that we tried during this visit, I liked this one best and will return. The B & B offers three meals a day, which is a tall task. They had a relatively short menu for dinner but there were enough interesting choices to make you think. Definitely a plus to be a meat eater here. The... More

High hopes for the brisket sandwich recommended by the waitress. Served a sandwich of fat and tendon, which wasn't cooked enough to bite through. Seems like a good place overall....and my friends quesadilla was good. Service was nice and friendly and helpful.

Don't let the long line deceive you. It moved quickly the day we went for breakfast. We took our breakfast burritos to go. They are the best breakfast burritos in town! I've honestly never tried anything else on the menu, but i'm sure it's probably good. This is a must try when visiting Telluride.
