If you find yourself on I-25 south of Pueblo at meal time, this is a great place to stop. It's small but has really good food. We like to stop for breakfast. I get pancakes but my husband gets one of the big breakfast plates with everything. We like to plan our trips to include a meal here, and will... More

This is a nice neat family-run diner. However we found the food mediocre. They were serving supermarket type turkey burgers and the regular burgers look just the same. At $7:50 each, that's a lot of money. Overloaded with salt.

When your hungry for home cooked breakfast, this is the place to go. Pancakes, sausage, eggs were good too. Friendly staff make the visit completely great. Never let your coffee cup get empty!

Stopped on the way home from Bishop Castle. Food was good and portions are big. I had a chicken fried chicken sandwich that was delicious and my husband had the chicken fried steak dinner and loved it. Two of our kids had the #1 breakfast meal and left nothing on their plates. The other had a corn dog that was... More

We've been stopping here for years on our way back from Denver. Never disappoints. Usually it's only breakfast we eat, but it is always fantastic. Was very busy today, but we were seated promptly. Coffee fresh and hot. No complaints....feels like a home environment where everyone knows each other. Happy place to enjoy.

Visited on a Saturday for lunch. Way understaffed and slow and food was horrible. Billed as a deli on service and food. Definitely not worth another stop.

We stopped for lunch and opted for something local rather than a chain. Max's was a great choice. We were able to be seated right away since we sat outside - inside was packed! My husband and I both had a great hamburger and my daughter loved the hot dog. We wouldn't hesitate to stop here again for lunch someday.

Thank Brandi K
