Stopped here on our way up to the mountains for some elk hunting. Food was pretty typical for a small town: Nothing special, but tasted good and filled your belly. Only complaint was the slightly high prices...6 breakfast sandwiches (no sides) ran us $50 bucks. Overall, will stop here again.

MJ's was full of locals at 8:30. Coffee especially good. My wife's chicken fried steak was tender and tasty. Not overly breaded, which I liked. Yes, I helped her finish it. Came with eggs and hash browns. I ordered their signature scramble. Happily surprised. Sausage made locally. Topped with hash browns, scrambled eggs, spicy green sauce, cheese, and lettuce and...

We were traveling through Creede on the way from CO to NM, stopped at the local grocery for supplies and asked where we could eat a good breakfast. A grocery employee recommended MJs. We arrived around 8:30am. It was 8:45 before the waitress came to our table to get the order. After 20 minutes, we asked the waitress about our... More

Breakfast was delicious cooked as I ordered. Fast service. Bacon was thick, big portions, and done. Eggs- just right. Yes I would go there again. For a small mountain town, the menu had plenty of variety.

We asked the receptionist at the Snowshoe Lodge to recommend a restaurant. She said MJ's across the street had "good ol' American food". We ate there twice because the food was better than any other restaurant in town, AND the service was better. There was only 1 waitress (and it appeared to be only one cook) who took care of...

The chicken fried steak here is AWESOME. I am a TEXAN and that's a staple in our diet. This place did it and the gravy perfectly!!!!! They also have great specials daily and delicious home made baked goods while they last daily. Yummy!!!

This little restaurant serves breakfast and lunch. We tried it for breakfast. The food was fine, just your average breakfast food, nothing special. The green chili on the breakfast burrito could use a little more flavor. The prices were reasonable. Service was okay, and it was pretty quick. Nothing bad, and nothing great to say about this place. It gets... More

Not on the main drag so don't expect a wait which is typical for small town eats. We got a table for 7 immediately and enjoyed a quality meal and good service.

This is a good place to eat, all is homemade too just like the Snowshoe. The guys and gals that work there are very friendly and do a wonderful job. The cook makes yummy food.
