What a view - with a meal to match!

Interesting combo of bowling alley and eatery - but it works! The view out the windows is jaw dropping...the food is good cafe style food - I had the burrito and it was tasty and ample. The service was fast and friendly. One of the few places open on Monday... I say "go" and enjoy!

A fun place to have a good meal in a bowling alley. Specials are always good and prices are very reasonable. Service may be a little slow but the Views of mountains are beautiful while you wait. Breakfast is the best in town.

This last visit to the Rooster's Ranch Cafe was just as nice as my three previous times. Lots of choices, variety on their menu. I had salad, husband had a roast beef sandwich, friends had grilled cheese and hot chocolate. All satisfying.

This is located in the bowling alley, and the food is pretty good. Teenage boys love the burgers, and the buffalo fries are tasty. Veggie burger is the frozen kind, but it was fine.

We often eat here when we're in the area. The service is always good and the food is tasty. You can't beat the view either!

Really good food, but it takes a while sometimes to be served. Green chili is awesome. Great variety of food. Excellent for families.

I need to go here more often. It was one of the best breakfast i've had. It was presented exactly the way I asked. Very attentive server. You eat looking at the Sangres, how great is that ?

We usually eat in San Isabel when we go to Bishop's Castle but it was closed on Tuesday. So we decided to drive on to Westcliffe for different scenery and eat a late lunch there. Friends told us about a good place to eat but it was closed on Tuesday! Drove down the street to the dead end and decided... More

We have dined here many times over the years. It is always open which is a plus for the small town of Westcliffe. Breakfast is good and burgers are good. Chicken fried steak is however a disappointment. Wonderful mountain view in the dining room makes up for anything else.
