As a local, this place is my second favorite lunch spot (after The Farm). They offer a homey atmosphere, good service and great food. Fast and friendly. All homemade. Great specials. Go there to see and be seen.

My husband had the hot roast beef sandwich and I had a half-sandwich (chicken salad) and soup. Mine was good, but unremarkable. My husband was disappointed that his beef was not hot and not tender. The waitress was friendly.

The owner said that about 20 years ago she began cooking everything with cornstarch instead of flour. I had a baked potato with green chili. Not your typical green chili and plenty of flavor. There is parking in the rear of the business.

Pan-fried trout over rice with salad. Very tasty. Cooked properly. Good service. Clean toilet. Narrow old storefront behind a bar in old downtown. Free street parking. I would definitely come again.

On our way to Mesa Verde we stopped here for lunch. Two of us got the Navajo Tacos which I had never heard of before. When I first saw the plate I wasn't too sure about the sauce, but this was delicious. Not like any...More
