After a long drive on I-70 across the Rockies, we arrived here exhausted but hopeful. Everything was absolutely delicious and as good as everyone else had said on TripAdvisor.

Great food, excellent service at a fair price. This restaurant also offers the best breakfast burrito's from a small stand in front of the restaurant. These are available in the early hours, I often pick these up for customer breakfast meetings.

Stopped for lunch and found the food to be right up there, service was over-the-top and price was right. Hard to be disappointed here. Chips and salsa had a nice fresh flavor.
