“Try the pecan rolls or cinnamon rolls!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We love their sticky pecan rolls and cinnamon rolls. They are huge, and affordable. I have only eaten in the restaurant once and was not impressed with the food. But I still love to stop by for the sticky buns!

“Reliable Western Cuisine and Atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

The food here is good and dependably hardy. This is a very Western atmosphere, with food for a hungry cowboy appetite. While I am not myself a huge fan of taxidermy, I have to admit that I find myself gazing at the specimens here for they are varied, seemingly a natural history of Colorado wildlife. The atmosphere is bustling, and the service is quick. Not a place, in my view, for a quiet romantic meal, but definitely a great opportunity to experience the authentic Western atmosphere of Colorado. Makes a good stop prior to heading up Poudre Canyon, for you will be well fed and prepared for the adventure, and the fact that you may not find another restaurant that is open before Walden.

“Good greasy spoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2012

This is what you expect in a greasy spoon kind of place including the animal heads all over the walls. The food is not amazing but it is good and hearty. The whole family will find something they like here and the cinnamon rolls are great!

2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2012

poor food quality. i know verns has been here a long time and has a loyal following but when there are so many great options in the area i'd hate to see a traveler waste what might be their only food opportunity on verne.
