Permanently closed. Possibly moved to Brighton. The bastards. Couldn't leave us one good dining place in this town. Now everything is fast food other than grannies diner (which is wonderful). Nowhere to take a family though :/

good place to go for a home cooked meal. Sad to see they are moving out of town but good to know they are just moving down the road to Brighton. Fort Lupton will miss them. A good place to meet up with old friends.

Although we live nearby, I had not been here for year. The only other time I was here, the service and food made me question why I wasted the gas to get there. Due to a time crunch and a lack of coffee at home, I begrudgingly drove the family to the branding iron. Is was a weekend morning and... More

Food was a C-, service about the same. Nothing to make a return visit for, unless starving. Not quick.

The Branding Iron Is about eighteen miles North of us. We are six time a year customers. I noticed that the restaurant is becoming much busier. That is a good thing as it points to improved meal quality as compared to several years ago. This visit I was seated at the counter. I had chorizo sausage, scrambled eggs, diced potatoes,... More

This is a popular restaurant in town and has about an American type menu as you can imagine. The food is very good but not the healthiest (but sometimes who wants healthy?). With a little tweaking of the menu I think they could attract families who have members that would want a healthier alternative. All I think they need to... More

Glad to see new owners at this place. Boycotted it for awhile because the owner was a jerk to his staff. New menu choices are nice additions, burgers and sandwiches are great, specials are tasty and huge, and the staff is a lot happier than they used to be, resulting in better service and a better experience.

We go to the audiologist in Ft Lupton and always stop there for a late breakfast or maybe lunch. The personnel are pleasant and the food is very tasty with a wide range of choices. I recommend that you try it.

Eaten here several times on early morning trips to Denver. Great location just off the Greeley Highway in Fort Lupton. Breakfast or lunch has always been excellent, with good size portions and served hot and tasty. But the service has either been average or terrible. Even when the place has not been crowded, we have had to wave to get... More

Good salad bar with fresh melons and fresh pineapple. Burgers are good, as are the onion rings. Nightly special was huge and tasty. Server was attentive and overall great.
