We went on a Saturday night not quite sure what to expect due to mixed reviews. I had the best burger I’ve had in a year. The homemade chips are excellent. My partner tried the Bison burger and loved it. Despite being short staffed, the...others hustled and picked up the slack I a rather impressive manner. Good food. Good attitude!More

What a screwed up operation. 2 of us went in at 4:00 specifically to get food and a micro brew before the crowds arrived. There were no more than 6 people in the bar. We were the first seated in the restaurant. They claim to...be a small batch micro brewery, we were advised they were out of brews other than a blond. I ordered a Merlot got a White wine of some sort. My brother ordered a a bottle beer. The were out. The server took our order from the dinner menu, never returned with our drinks. She then passed us off to another server, who verified our order and the informed us there would be a 5.00 up charge on each of our orders. One option from the side menu was a loaded baked potato. She advised we could have a baked potato with butter and sour cream but if they added chives and extra sour cream and butter it was 5.00 more each. In a nut shell terrible service, a brewery with nothing but domestic crap. If I could give them no stars I would. They have no system, untrained servers. Adding on 5.00 to friggen potato, give me a break. Needless to say, we left without being served knor did the server care.More

Took forever to get our food. The food was ok. Then to top it off they do not tell you that they charge 3.7% CC fee, You get the bill and it is on that. So my hubby and I dug up enough cash between...the two of us to come up with the cash, So if you don't have cash you will pay for your food/drinks, the 3.7% and they still want a tip. I don't think you should not be told about the extra fee. I think beings this has happened to us twice, I am going to start asking if there is a CC fee and if there is I will go elsewhere.More

Unexpected find in Cortez Colorado. Enjoyed the steak salad and SantaFe Chicken. They make their own beer here so do give it a try. I especially like the Stout. Good value and waitstaff is friendly and helpful.

After a day sightseeing, we decided to have a nice meal instead of fast food. J. Fargo looked like a good place. Although there were several vehicles in the parking lot, there were very few folks inside. We were seated promptly and given menus. Took...a while to get a server to take our orders. While we were not in any hurry, it did seem to take longer than expected to get our food. I had the Navaho Flatbread while my wife had Southwestern Quesadillas. Both entrees were good but nothing special. Our dinner was reasonably priced but the service seemed slow. (Anymore this is a common issue when it is difficult to get help)More

The food was great. I had the fry bread with beans and chili. So delicious and different. My husband had the chicken Santa Fe with green chili. I had a Bahamas bucket of rum. We also had the fried cheese dessert. The waitress was caina...and she was so professional. We recommend this restaurantMore

My husband and I are here while visiting Mesa Verde National park. We were seated quickly and experienced excellent service from Jeremy. For service I would give them a 5, but for the food and other issues I couldn’t. My husband had the brisket plate...and it was good, but not great. Onion rings were great, as were the brisket sliders. The toppings on the Navajo taco were a little sparse, but what was there was very good. As a person who is currently experiencing mobility issues I do have a complaint for this restaurant. There is parking out in front of the restaurant, but for some reason they put the handicapped spaces in back of the restaurant requiring people to walk clear around the building.More

We entered, and hesitated, waiting to be seated, but someone at a table said "Sit where you want" so we did. After waiting a bit, that same person got up and brought us menus and said the waitress would help us soon. Odd, but ok....The waitress/cook/bartender rushed over-she was very kind and helpful, but obviously overworked. Our food was delicious-Texas tacos and cheeseburger. I did reluctantly ask for a glass of water and napkins, which I never got, because she was just too busy.More

I ordered the Santa Fe Grilled Chicken and my wife the bison burger. After 15 minutes the waitress returned and said they were out of bison - and had been for a few days! After another 40 minutes our food arrived. My wife was happy...with her burger. However, by rice and beans were lukewarm and the peppers were lukewarm wet noodles. We arrived about 5:45 when it wasn't very busy. By the time we left there were many more people sitting at tables. I wonder how long it will take them to get there food? (They took $6 off our order - but that wasn't the point!)More
