You know a place serves a good, tasty breakfast if it is full of locals. We have eaten here a few times. Good Food and Great Service! A nice place to stop before visiting Englewood's Thursday morning Farmers Market.

What apparently started to be a Mexican restaurant morphed into a huge menu hometown favorite. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. Great value. Gets crowded after 5pm.

More of a "home cooked" type of place. But my goodness do you get LOTS of food for your money. Would definitely go here again!

Strip mall eateries are often not always the best. But it'd be hard to beat their breakfast! We didn't want a chain option and decided to give Good Times a try. First, you know it's good when it's packed with locals and snow birds alike. It's also much bigger than it looks from the outside. Next, the menu is so... More

The reviews that I have read gave this restaurant good reviews for their breakfast menu. I wish that we had waited for breakfast. I must admit that I have nothing really negative to say about our meal, but,,,, Neither my wife nor I raved about the Steak Chimichanga (mine) or the Broasted Chicken (hers). We did, however, both think that... More

Local favorite. Varied menu with daily specials. Gets very crowded on weekends. Denver Scramble, and Blueberry pancakes are two of our favorites. Waitresses are a trip. Give it a try, you'll like it.

Spouse & I have eaten here several times both for breakfast & lunch. Daily specials are very inexpensive. Not a gourmet restaurant but food is quite good. Staff have worked here for years and provide friendly & very good service. Portions are generally very large; we often split a meal. Will likely continue to eat here regularly.
