Fond memories of great breakfasts with local friends brought us back another year, but the past is the past. Atmosphere was good home-town main street and service was very good as expected. Breakfast was generous but greasy and corned beef hash tasted out of a can. Friend's tamale, also generous did not meet expectations & some ingredients seemed stale. Every... More

We had stayed at the Aneth Hotel, right next door, so naturally we decided to try Jack and Janelle's. We were seated immediately, and the server offered to make a new pot of decaf for me (which I really appreciated). We each ordered what turned out to be a very generously sized breakfast. I especially loved the homemade biscuits!

Always a great breakfast and super coffee. Buffet is a plus if your really hungry. The staff here is great and the owner is very nice too. Dinner here is also a plus.

Family friendly atmosphere. Reasonably priced and a good variety of choices. I had BLT sandwich and my husband had the special of Navajo tacos. Very good. Also, got a piece of homemade cheese cake to go, very delicious. You can tell everything was homemade. The appearance of the building does not reflect the quality of food. Give it a try!

We arrived here after traveling all day to find a very nice restaurant. We were greeted by Jack and Janelle and had a lovely experience. Lovely meal and people were very helpful. Very good breakfast. Jack and Janelle are very knowledgable about the area and can give you helpful hints for local information!

Reasonable down home style cooking at a reasonable price. We ate lunch there at 230 so the place was quiet. Waitress was very friendly. Owner came to make sure our food was ok. He gave me tips on how I could get my fried chicken and chicken fried steak to be a crunchy crisp as theirs. I had the home... More

Prime rib sandwich and cheeseburger were exceptional, as was the salad bar (I particularly enjoyed the potato salad). My teenage daughter said the apple pie was perhaps "the best thing I've ever eaten." We all tasted the pie. It was excellent. The only downside, the owner seemed to be trying a little too hard to make social connections with the... More
