It was suggested that we have lunch at George's if we went through town after climbing the Great Sand Dunes. We were starved and delighted by every aspect of the diner. Our waiter was enthusiast..... The chili burger and fries were fantastic! We then ENJOYED great pecan pie with a generous ice cream topping.

On our way from Denver to Santa Fe and needed an early lunch stop. Close to the freeway and positive reviews from another service so we thought we would give it a shot. Not really a drive-in but a "sit down". Don't think it mattered what you ordered as long as you ordered green chile either on it or on... More

My parents have been coming here for years when traveling from Denver/Colorado Springs to points south. I had a chance to eat here just a couple of days ago. The food was great and the service couldn't have been better. The seating is not very comfortable though and is very orange. This is exactly how I remembered it from years... More

We got the last table for a Tuesday lunch, and soon the line was well out the door showing how popular this place is with the locals. The food was inexpensive, tasty, and generous. Service was a little slow, but not surprising with the crowd that was there. (It appeared that some folks were pre-ordering before they even got a... More

A plus rating for some authentic Mexican or American food. People always smiling. Service is fast and snappy.

Friendly, accommodating, quality-minded-I cannot say enough about this restaurant. Delicious breakfast cooked exactly to order (someone CAN make over medium eggs) and super coffee! It's definitely on our "stop again" list. We'll time our trips to eat here as often as possible, and I wish I could rate it higher.

when we went it was crowded Probably because it was July 5th everybody else was traveling home. The food was so good. And the service was great even with as crowded as it was. Will be back again for sure.
