Stopped in here on a business trip for breakfast. Place seemed very small and plain to say the least. I as well as the others who were with me on our business trip were totally impressed with the service and meals. You MUST try the smothered breakfast burrito! Best breakfast burrito and green Chile I have experienced in a very... More

Left early Sunday morning for ski country. This place was all that seemed to be open between 6 and 7 am. It had great reviews soooo we tried it. Yes it's a small hole in the wall, but let me tell you the breakfast was fantastic!!! Oh and the waitress was sooo attentive - I give customer service an A+.... More

We ate breakfast here, not expecting too much from the small cafe. Not only was the breakfast excellent, the salsa was the best we had on our month-long trip. I asked to buy some to go and the waitperson gladly complied. If you like garlic, this salsa is for you--I rationed it throughout our trip and wish I'd have bought... More

It was a bit off-season so there weren't a lot of choices open so we stopped here. I'd eat there again but maybe not if I had enough other options.

The waitress was spot on, and quite pleasant. The Santa Fe burger was cooked to perfection. My hubby ordered the Smothered Hamburger steak, and woofed it! We are picky diners, and foodies, so trust me when I say this is a must stop for hungry folk. The plates are full! And try their chile fries- yum!

This place is a little off the beaten path...definitely a 'locals' scene! Trust your GPS...it's not taking you out to the boonies...just down a few back streets to the best burger you'll have on the whole trip! If you're in town for breakfast, you should try their country fried steak & eggs. GREAT! Coffee is strong & hot, too...

Way off the well traveled highways, this place is hamburger heaven and worth the effort to find. The burgers are fresh ground beef, not some frozen preformed pattie. The Santa Fe has two cheeses, long green chilies, bacon, lettuce, tomato, pickles and onion. Heaven between a bun. The meat is flame grilled giving it a nice flavor. French fries are... More

We decided to eat here for breakfast. It was easy to find with the GPS, but lots of turns. When we walked in there were no visible seats available, but the waitress said there were some in the back. This looks like a converted house, but there are lots of tables. There seemed to be only one waitress for the... More

We lunched here on way home after motorcycle trip to Pikes Peak. The food was very good; the best Chicken Fried Steak I've had in a long time. The restaurant was really busy but the service was very prompt and we were out and back on our way quickly.
