This was a very nice place to eat. The food was very homey and good. The prices were good for what you had. The staff was friendly. It was clean but nothing fancy

We met friends here for brunch and all took the buffet. There was scrambled eggs, bacon and sausage, fried potatoes, biscuits & gravy, fruit covered bread pudding, fruit and sweets and drink included for $10.00. Good value and a homey atmosphere. This has been in Cortez for many years and our friends loved returning for a meal.

We called in because it looked pretty from the outside. We enjoyed it so much we called back for breakfast the following day. The staff made us feel very welcome and our server was really good. The portions of food were very big and we weren't disappointed by the taste. There's a good salad bar as well in the evenings.

I chose Jack and Janelle's because it was obviously locally-owned, and I wanted to support a local business more than the Denny's down the street. It was quirky, clean, and reminded me of restaurants from my youth (70's and 80's). This was Sunday night in Cortez, and not much was open. I had dinner there: sirloin, fries, corn, and salad...

A very good breakfast, selected from a menu of good selections French toast is tasty, fluffy; egg cooked just right. Coffee fresh. Waitress was very attentive and friendly, and the owner made the rounds to check on customers. A good traveler mainstay.
