Rule of thumb. Go where the locals go. Great food. Good prices and friendly staff. The Southside omelette was really tasty!

Wondered whether we'd even get in so near closing. Gerri assured us she would've greeted and seated us even if it had been 1 minute before closing! Meat loaf was tasty and mashed potatoes, homemade. Couldn't have made better myself. Hospitality with a capital H at Randy's courtesy of Gerri and the meal was just great. Thanks, Gerri!

The service was only exceeded by the food! It was so good the first day we visited Grand Junction, we went back the second day. Biscuits were exceptional, ham steak was huge, sausage gravy was great!

The chicken fried steak is the best in town. Amazing breakfast burrito. Never had a bad meal in 15 years. We go at least once every two weeks

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.

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
