Wonderful breakfast spot next door to the "earthy" First Interstate Motel. Eggs Benny, hash browns and pancakes all yummy... Great service.

Went based on TA reviews. Monday morning so no waiting line. Ordered corned beef hash, crispy. Large order came, but it had almost the texture of baby food. There no "chew" to it. It was crispy, but lacked any flavor. Friend had peach cobbler and ice cream, said it was very good. Saw some good looking food at other tables,... More

Super friendly wait staff. Had the ultimate skillet with gravy and my husband had the ultimate skillet with green chili. So, so good! And you better be hungry because it is a plate of food! The prices were very reasonable.

We go to this restaurant frequently for breakfast or lunch. All the food is very good and prices are great. The staff is efficient and friendly. Even when there is a wait it is never long. Service is quick.

We stopped for an early breakfast and found many locals already here. It may not be fancy, but you can't beat the food! And great service. We thoroughly enjoyed the chile rellenos and southwest omelet. The green chile is the best we've found in a long time. We prefer local restaurants over chains anytime! We'll definitely be back.

We ate there twice by recommendations but found it average at best so we do not ever go there. There are too many good breakfast spots in the county.

I have eaten here for many years. A great locals place to start your day. This place gets busy in the morning and you can expect a short wait time occasionally. If you are a homemade type breakfast this is the place for you. Good service and reasonably priced.

This is by far one of my favorite places to eat in summit county, especially for Sunday brunch!! The staff are friendly and work fast, and the food is delicious! I've actually only tried their breakfast, including The Bronco (my favorite), any omelette, and their skillets. The portions are big and they always have a special to try. Prices are... More
