Great breakfast!

The place is tiny, about 10 tables, looks like it was a house at one time. The food service is fast. The food is quite good.

If you are hungry and want food that tastes great go to Pippos. Navajo Tacos to BLT'S good home cooking the best cooks ever. It is small and not fancy but super friendly and great food. The kind of place you can not live without.

not a lot of breakfast choices in Cortez. We went here; it is a classic small town, random design, tattered at the edges, diner style, small cafe. Staff is friendly and efficient. We sat at the counter with a view of the serving station and kitchen; loved the vernacular of it all. Menu is what you would expect--eggs, meat, chicken... More

Small diner, good coffee and service. We had chicken fried steak, ham steaks, eggs, biscuits and gravy all across the table. Home made biscuits were a favorite. All enjoyed the breakfast very much, we stopped in before a hunt so we wanted a hearty meal to keep us going for the day, and this fit the bill.

I remember the very first time I ate at Pippos. I was about 8 years old and was on our annual road trip out west with my family. From the very first bite of my delicious pancake I was hooked! And I remember how exciting it was to be in such a busy little diner. The staff was friendly and... More

You have got to check this place out...holy cow is it delicious! The staff is very friendly and the food is wonderful! I wish Cortez was closer to my home because I would definitely be eating there more often. If there was a way to give it more stars, Pippos would get them from me.

I envisioned walking into this restaurant and seeing my aunt waitressing and Alice in the kitchen cooking all homemade food. Well it was an imitation of the old diners where everybody knows your name. Pippos certainly their regulars but it wouldn't be us if we lived close. We were there at 6:45 am so we could put food in our... More

The service at Pippo's was the best part--our wait staff were so nice and genuine. I really liked them. The food was just fuel. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't noteworthy. We had breakfast and while we didn't order anything especially jazzy, it was just okay. I wish I could say better. The atmosphere is pleasant and the prices were... More

For a southwestern diner, they sure know how to cook grits! Always a good meal, kind of tiny but typical diner atmosphere. Have been many times and have no complaints.
