Visited with family while vacationing in Lake City. Look forward to eating here every year. When busy, the food can take a while, but you won't be disappointed. Delicious calzones and pizza & terrific all you can eat breakfast. Yum!

We were on our way to an RV park in Lake City and couldn't get there because of road construction. We stopped at Poker Alice's to find out if they knew when the road would open. We were able to park our 5th wheel and truck along side the restaurant and later they let us disconnect so we could drive... More

We've been coming to Lake City for several years and each time we've been to Poker Alice. Though they're open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we've only ever been for dinner. And though my husband has dabbled in a few other menu items, he always winds up stealing pieces of our group's pizza, because that's the best thing on the... More

I had tons of work to do in my motel room - this was a business trip - so I thought I would stop in for a carryout pizza. Of course, this was on the 4th of July and Lake City hosts a huge festival on this day every year. The restaurant had run out of pizza and calzones! I... More

Thank you for your comments. We're sorry that we were out of pizza and calzones but glad that you enjoyed the buffalo burger. And yes, July 4th is one of the biggest celebratory days of the year. Come back when you're not on business and enjoy our beautiful area of Colorado. More

We went here for a late breakfast and was not disappointed. For 7 dollars you get 4 choices for a breakfast dinner coupled with good service.

This place is fantastic. We especially love their salads and pizza. Pizzas are made to order. We eat here every year. They have seating outdoor, which is great during nice weather.

We stopped by here for a garden salad in the evening. You would expect this wouldn't take long - WRONG. It seems they complete each order before proceeding to the next. The person ahead of us ordered 4 pizzas and they wouldn't do anything on our order until they finished the 4 pizzas - I think it took us 45... More

We were disappointed in the pizza! It was not worth the money. Not sure if the other food is good. They do have all you can eat breakfast for $6.99. We noticed a lot of cars were there in the am.

Poker Alice usually gets decent reviews of it's Pizza. Ordered the Meat Lovers Pizza and I think they forgot to put any sauce on it. The meat and cheese amounts were good, but with little to no sauce this made it the driest pizza I have ever had. DO NOT RECOMMEND!

We are open from late May thru late Sept. Our menu consists of pizzas (only one size - 16 inch - feeds 3-5 people), calzones, pasta, sandwiches, salads and desserts. We also have a 10" Gluten Free pizza and we have GF bread and buns for our sandwiches. For drinks, we have fountain drinks, iced tea (sweet and unsweet), beer (gluten free also), wine, fruit tea smoothies, specialty coffees and shakes. We also offer a dine-in special from 4-6 pm every day which consist of a cheese pizza and a pitcher of either beer or soda for $15.75. We have indoor seating as well as tables on the front deck and outside open dining with a great view of the mountains. As you enter, you will get a menu and be instructed to sit wherever you like and when you are ready to order, proceed to the register where you will place your order and pay at that time. You will be given an order number which will be called out once the order is ready. We prepare the food in the order that orders are taken and they are prepared fresh at that time. We do not jump tickets in order to do the easier ones or ones that take less time to prepare. We also do not have pre-prepared items. Occasionally, we will have some extra pizza slices prepared which can be bought immediately without having to wait. When we are in the busiest time of the summer season (late-June to mid-August), it is not uncommon for our customers to wait between 30 minutes to an hour for the food - just trying to be honest. The majority of our customers tell us that it is well worth the wait. We do not deliver but we take phone orders for carryout. During the same time frame mentioned above, we offer an "All You Can Eat" breakfast for $6.99 From 7:30 to 10:00. We shut breakfast down promptly at 10:00 so we can prepare for lunch which begins at 11:00. Please call to verify our closing times which vary depending on the time of the season. We also close on Sunday so we can go to church and have our day of rest. Please come by and give us a try. We would be glad to serve you.
