Johnson's Corner is a famous stop along I-25 for a good meal. Mainly American and country-like options available plus some other choices. Burgers, breakfast, "world-famous" cinnamon rolls, and fries are their specialties. Late night service can be spotty, but the fact they are open 24-7 makes up for it.

Stopped at Johnson's corner on our way to Estes Park, Co for breakfast. Worst food and service ever. We have been coming here for years and we noticed the quality of food and service was declining every time we stopped. This time was the final straw. By far, the worst breakfast ever. Service was non existing. No refills on drinks... More

This is not a review of the restaurant at Johnson's Corner, but of the bakery which is part of that complex. I would like to try the restaurant, but I have tried the bakery and their famous cinnamon buns, courtesy of their online service. The original buns are huge and come in individual plastic containers. My sister and I share... More

Yes, this is a truck stop. Yes, it is ALWAYS busy. In a hurry? Craving a delicious cinnamon roll? Stop, park and go to the cafe' entrance, pick up a pre-packaged GIANT cinnamon roll ($3.26 w/tax) purchase and ask them to please heat it in the microwave. You can get back on the road or sit at a nearby table... More

Stopped here on the advice of a Loveland local who said that his family ate there every weekend. This advice was spot on. I had the chicken fried steak dinner and my fiance has the hamburger steak dinner. Both meals were excellent. My chicken fried steak was so tender that I cut it with my fork. Apparently known for their... More

Well they do it right...if you want a cozy well run atmosphere with a cinnamon roll sitting in front of you and a chicken fried steak coming. Very clean, very positive and competent help, good parking and clean restrooms.

Always a good standby when you want pie, cinnamon rolls, or comfort food. Closest thing nearby for good homestyle cooking and all the comfort food favorites. Visit at least once a year if not more, and if in the area.

This use to be our go-to spot close to home with good diner food options. In fact, for 30 years we came here once a week. But, starting with the sale to TA a couple of years ago, the place has gone solidly downhill. It has gotten to the point that we just won't go there at all. I miss... More

We have been making the drive to Johnsons Corner for years. We always had great home cooked meals and good service. Sadly it was bought by a corporation and is no longer a place we will visit again. We ordered the turkey dinner which was almost inedible. The meat was dry and tasteless and the dressing was burned. We bought... More
