Traveling through Grand Junction and saw this diner with lots of cars in front so we gave it a try. Great service and friendly. I had the huevos rancheros with green chili just spicy enough. Lots of locals eat here. Would eat here again.

We live on OM and prefer to keep our business up here. Randy's is always busy, but stop in anyway there is always just the right place to sit. We go at least twice a month, bring our grand kids and out of town guests.

Randy's has several locations and all of them are quite good (for standard American food) and quite reasonable. We usually go to the one on RT 50 and the servers are very nice. The food is served at he correct temperature and as it was ordered or described on the menu. They are willing to make adjustments for your particular... More

I first went to North Ave at closing but had a fresh delicious 1/2 Chef salad. Went back to the Orchard Mesa location and we had Eggs Benedict and Chicken Fried Steak & Eggs. I thought it was the tastiest hollandaise in town. Really good meal with tasty slices of ham/bacon underneath eggs done right over muffin. C.F.Steak also very... More

Was in the one on Hwy. 50 going out to Montrose last week. The best home fries in GJ! Breakfast burrito was great as well. Friendly staff! I love mom and pop establishments, this place will always on my list when I'm on the road.

I thought I'd reviewed Randy's a long time ago, but apparently I haven't! My family loves Randy's. We usually go to the Orchard Mesa location, but we've been to the other two as well. I often get breakfast items even for lunch, but I also really like the French Dip Sandwich. Pretty much everything is really good, and Randy takes... More

Early breakfast on a Sunday morning at the beginning of our vacation. Breakfast was well prepared, hot, fresh and coffee was good. Server was maybe a little sleepy at first, but she warmed up and was friendly by the end of our meal. Coffee was refilled as needed, so we were happy travelers.

My wife and I ate there recently and we will not go back. How can you screw up breakfast? Well the coffee was so weak, you could see right through a full pot when they came to refill your cup. What did they do recycle the grinds? And the corned beef was terrible, chunky pieces of onion in it, not... More
