Eating in Cortez

We were greeted by the owner. Before I sat down I looked at flag on the wall.She proceeded to tell me about her sons service to their country. She was a very proud mom, and her cooking sure showed that down home cooking style and her prices were not through the roof.

When I looked at the menu and prices I wanted this place to be great. All my favorite home cooking items. Good prices. Bad cooking. Maybe the cooks were having a bad night . I am going to give them one more chance. My chicken fried steak was over cooked and Maria's Pasta was tasteless. Gravy was bland . Green... More

What a wise choice we made when we stopped here for a light lunch. It has a "homey" look from the outside and inside as well. No fancy decor. There is something on the menu for everyone. They are very willing to accommodate if a substitution is needed. I chose to have a bowl of soup, chicken soup. It arrived... More

My family of four are here for dinner. Two of us have Celiac Disease. All of us enjoyed our meals. Jack is very knowledgeable about GF preparation. The restaurant had many gf options. The chicken veggie soup was delicious. I enjoyed the meatloaf and my daughter enjoyed the roast beef both gluten free.

It is not a fancy place, but the food is good, the prices are low and the service is great. It is home style cooking. We went back a few times.

Have eaten there many times while next door at the campground but the quality of the food and the service has gotten poor. Service could be that there was only one server working with none of the staff helping her. They just seated us and did not even take a drink order. Food was average at best

Interesting menu, quirky decor, and down-home recipes make this a one-of-a-kind, fun place to eat. Portions are huge. Food is flavorful and satisfying. The owners and servers treated us like neighbors or old friends.

Good basic country fare. Nice salad bar with soup. The green chili was very good. Owner was our waitress and was very informative and talkative about the area. Food was good. I had the country pork chops and my wife had the chicken dinner. It was a lot of food, but after hiking all day. it really hit the spot.... More
