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).

This appears to be a local favorite. We ordered the All American breakfast and the Ultimate Omelet. The All American comes with two eggs any way you choose, your choice of bacon, sausage links or patties. You choose the ingredients for the Ultimate Omelet. There is an additional cost for each item. Both breakfasts come with hash browns, we order... More

We have eaten several different meals at four (4) different times & days. The food, the wait-staff, & the prices have always been the same. We love a restaurant that we can always count on. The food is freshly made & tastes great. The owners are friendly & we enjoy the décor-home like atmosphere. Samantha is a very good waitress.

The breakfast we had was tasty and staff were friendly and courteous. If we were to say anything negative at all it is we found the restaurant needing a bit of a scrub - a little on the grungy side, but easily overlooked due to the friendly staff and good food.

We were tired and hungry looking for a quick snack en route to our evening destination in Durango. My opinion of a restaurant begins with the parking lot ... This one should have been enough to let us know what to expect ... Unswept, butts, plastic flowers. Pie was okay, side of biscuits was okay. The " buffet" table was... More

Staff not friendly; did not feel really clean inside. Also, the food was all right. It was not outstanding but did fill your stomach.
