A local told us to go here. Locals know best. Wow. I still dream about their burritos. Large portions here so don't over order. Super nice waitstaff, even to outsiders (Colorado can be a "locals only" type place). We ate here twice and wish we went a third time. Best place we ate at in town.

I'm appalled that there are reviews of KC that include adjectives such as "disappointed," and "overrated." It's a freakin' "DINER," people! Temper your expectations. If you think the portions are "small" or the food "tasteless," you don't understand food and need to go back to food school. This place is on point. Whether you're stumbling out of a bar or... More

Had an early dinner here with the family after visiting Garden of the Gods. We came based on the great reviews here. We ordered also based on the reviews others have posted. Many mentioned that the portions are huge, so we ordered only two dishes for the four of us (2 adults 2 kids) to share. We ordered the Bronco... More

They are open for breakfast all day. The portions are large. They only take cash no credit cards. I has two eggs, hashbrowns and toast on a very large plate. The food and service were very good.

I ordered the ham and eggs and literally that is what I got.Two eggs and a piece of ham!! I was charged $8.50!! Was under the impression it was a standard breakfast with hashbrowns and toast too, but nope!! I paid way too much for the amount of food I got and won't be coming back too this place. Perhaps...

I ate here with family and was very impressed with the service and the food. The staff were friendly and the customer service was excellent throughout. The place had a great diner vibe and the portions were huge, but they allow you to choose 1/2 and 1/4 portions so you can mix and match (or simply because you can't eat... More

Just awesome food I love the thing and the bacon cheese burgers. Yes a little pricy but totally worth your money.

Ate lunch here with my husband and daughter-in-law. True diner experience! Wait staff was efficient and friendly. I was glad you could order half portions. I had the Pablo sandwich and fries. Excellent even if it did fall apart! My daughter-in-law ordered the breakfast burrito full portion. It was huge! She did not earn the "I cleaned my plate" sticker.... More

We tried the restaurant based on prior TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The service was super-friendly and quick. And the food was generously portioned and reasonably priced. Seemed to be a lot of locals and regulars which is a good sign.

Can’t believe I’ve lived here for 17 years and didn’t eat here until this year. Portions are no kidding ginormous – the second time I visited, I split one burrito with the Hubs and we were both satisfied. The green chile deserves all the accolades it has received over the years as it really is jam-packed with flavor and a... More
