There isn't a lot in this small town. The One-Stop next door has a little cafe with Polish food and groceries. That and Lu's is about it. But, Lu's is a welcoming and popular spot. It is especially popular at breakfast - and it has...More

Ate here twice on our stay in the San Luis Valley. Very comfortable and bright place. The food was very good and the bison burger was exceptional. My wife loved the Fajitas and the Taco salad was great! Friendly and attentive servers! Highly recommended.

Huge breakfast menu available through lunch. Huevos smothered in beans. Breakfast burrito must be smothered as dry otherwise. Great stop between Alamosa and Fort Garland.

Good location, easy access with atmosphere! Diverse menu for all tastes and Lu's Mexican food & salsa are great. Her home-made triple-layer chocolate cake is a must.

We stopped for breakfast at Lu's main street café on our drive to the Great Sand Dunes. This is a small, local café located in a small town. We had huevos rancheros & the service was excellent and our food was very good.
