Excellent Mom & Pop Eatery

The four of us ate breakfast at this restaurant. Two of us ordered eggs over easy(white cooked but runny yolk) and one ordered eggs cooked "hard". In all cases the eggs were perfect and the requested bacon was generous. Our forth ordered biscuits and gravy and raved about how delicious the gravy... read more

Love their food. Country fried steak is the best! Also, the host and staff are very friendly and makes you feel at home.

Jack and Janelles in Cortez, CO. What should you expect? Local workers and country home cooking! The sausage patty was huge! I couldn't even finish it all. Classic diner style breakfast and no frills ingredients. Yuppies eat someplace else.

Kind of thought this would be a home cooking place, it wasn't. Looks like lots of locals go here, but the sandwiches are very basic without much thought going into them. They have a salad bar, nothing special. I wouldn't go here again.

I can eat in a chain restaurant without driving more than a couple of miles from home so like to try a local place whenever possible. When I mentioned to the mature woman who waited on us that we wanted to try home cooking, she said this is the only place in town you will find it. I asked: "So... More

It wasn't the worst place and it wasn't the best place we ate on our trip and stay in Cortez, but it was good and inexpensive for the portions that were given. We did have a little wait for the waitress (which we found out was 'new') but after that the service improved. The 'owner?" came over and engaged us... More

Stay away from this place. My wife read all the glowing reviews & was going to surprise me that she found a Country cooking type restaurant, on the way to Mesa Verde. I'm not always discouraged by curb appeal as some of the worst looking building have the best food. The wife had the special (fish) & I had the... More

Seating was quick. The staff was friendly and welcoming. I ordered the pasta and it was a huge portion, like I only expected half the amount for what I paid for. Salad bar was good. Yes, that leads me to say, pricing was cheap (I almost felt like I was stealing with the good pricing).
