We just pulled into this restaurant because it was the first "local " place we saw. We like to eat at places that are unique to the area we're visiting and avoid big chain restaurants whenever possible. It was 1:00 but they serve breakfast all day and that's what we wanted. I could build my own omelette with as many... More

Interesting choices on menu but all seem like the kind "momma" used to make. Good food, good service, and very reasonably priced

Stopped in while on vacation. Entrance is in the back of the building, good parking, down home look. Inside is clean as are restrooms. Lots of choices on the menu but we were hungry for a good burger & we found it. Very good burger & fries. Friendly staff, good service.

Stopped in for lunch before our visit to Mesa Verde. Service was friendly and the owner made sure my hubby had enough food. I got the salmon and he got the chicken fried steak. The salmon was good and served with real mashed potatoes. Hubby said he enjoyed his meal.

Under $10 per person for a big breakfast and coffee. Try the Ham and Eggs for a dollar more. However, service at 9 am was very slow and forgetful, although friendly. So, not bad, but there are many breakfast spots in Cortez. Might try somewhere else next time.
