Good Breakfast

Went for Breakfast, waited on promptly, food came out quickly, cooked to order. Eggs perfect, bacon crisp, wish coffee had been a bit stronger but that's just me

We stayed in Cortez whilst on a trip to Mesa Verde and decided to go to Jack and Janelle's as recommended by the staff in our motel. We weren't disappointed. Janelle and Gareth, were very friendly and made us feel very welcome. My girlfriend had a cheeseburger and I had the chicken fried steak, which was nearly as big as... More

Food was delicious and the service was great. We had breakfast there before heading to Mesa Verde National Park.

Got into town late asked the clerk at the hotel where to eat she said Jack and Janelle's. What a nice suprise, the outside looked a little rough (they started the remodel inside 1st) went in the back door and the owner greeted us and led us to a table. Service was excellent and the prices were excellent, had so... More

Love it when you can get breakfast all day. Food was excellent. I love being able to select the ingredients I want in my omelette for one price! Everything was great. Only complaint was they had a large amount of open tables and when new people came in, they packed us all together. We had to move to a different... More

The only thing the owner wanted to speak to me about was a company I worked for at the time. Expressing her distaste for the company. I was just trying to have breakfast with my family.

It is a great place for chicken fried steak and breakfast. While waiting for my lunch/dinner, I noticed that they dumped lettuce into the salad bowl at the salad bar. Then, they dished my dinner salad from it. Pretty mediocre salad. I notice they have a covered patio now. Could be a noisy one since it close to the highway.

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
