Sadly, I only ate here once, but that was more than enough. The corn on the cob tasted like freezer burn, the salad dressing tasted canned.

Not the best first impression, but good family style dinner. Our booth cushions were sadly thin ans a little uncomfortable. However, the meal was fine and ample portions Real family style setting, good for kids.

Great hometown family diner. Food was awesome, and so was the service. From the owner to the waitress, these folks really made us feel at home and showed their appreciation for our business. Looking forward to dining here again the next time we visit Mesa Verde NP!

Next to our lodge, a very friendly owner (who speaks some Frewnch!) and just the kind of breakfast we like, good eggs/sausage/hash browns. We enjoyed it!

Chicken fried steak was calling to us after reading the positive Trip Advisor reviews. Our dinner came with crispy okra tots (cousins to tater tots.) The buttery mash potatoes and steak were slathered in perfect white gravy. Generic dinner roll. My friend and I shared the meal.

This was a very nice place to eat. The food was very homey and good. The prices were good for what you had. The staff was friendly. It was clean but nothing fancy
