Cruising through Lake City I was hungry. I had no idea where to stop. I pulled into Poker Alice and I'm glad I did. It is a walk up and order place. I ordered the Chicken Club. The chicken breast was grilled perfectly and the sandwich tasted fresh. I sat on the front porch enjoyed the quite tourist town.

Stopped in Lake City, Colorado after riding all day,got a room and then order a pizza to take back to our cabin. It was a bit of a wait because they make them up fresh, and was worth the wait.

All you can eat breakfast for $6.99! Who wouldn't stop for that...so we did. And it was true. The food is fine but not special. For that price it was a great value!

This is my favorite place in town! The atmosphere is very homey. The wait staff have always been very nice. The food is always delicious! It takes a while for your food to be made and get to your table, but it tastes fresh.

We ate here once and we're not sure what all the hubbub is all about. You order at the counter, scramble to find an open spot, and then wait a long time for your so so food to get cooked. They have a sign when you go in explaining that you need to go somewhere else if you're in a... More

We enjoy visiting Poker Alice when visiting Lake City in the summer. The pizza is very good. The most frustrating things are the limited seating in the restaurant and the time it takes to get your food. We waited approximately 45 minutes after ordering. I suppose you could walk around and enjoy the scenery while waiting.

First off if you come at the busy time(Lunch in July) be prepared to wait about 1hr for your food. My son had the pizza and he said that it was just ok. I had the Meat lovers calzone at it was ok but nothing to get excited about. I would doubt that we would go back, especially if we... More

Food is ok, but they should let people know it will over an hour wait for food. Just terrible. I don't suggest coming here and won't be back.

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.
