We tried the Yak Burgers since we didn’t think we’d find them where we live. Tender, juicy, cooked to our liking which is medium rare. This was a great spot to unwind after a day exploring Mesa Verde. Had they been open Saturday we would...More

There are not too many selections in the menu. But we had good fresh salad and pasta and local beer. They all tasted very good. The service was good and friendly.

steak fingers, done very well, order at counter, they bring the food and fill the drinks, you pay at other counters, maybe the only reason to go to Cortez

I was told to try this resturant. An odd place that I would not normally go to. But the food was really good. Every table is different, and no two knives or forks matched, but so what if you enjoy what you get served. Service...More

I'm sure they do. We ate at this establishment and ordered pizzas to take home for later and they were more than happy to accommodate us.

No outdoor seating or service--it is right off the highway. You may be able to "sweet talk your pet inside if he/she is well behaved." The food is incredible for such a small town--perhaps the pet can stay in the car....
