If you need some down home cooking swing by Judys. This family owned and operated restaurant is a great little spot. It is what it is, a good little diner..

Don't waste your time or money. The service was atrocious and down-right rude. Server never refilled our drinks or followed-up with us after we placed our order. Food was cold and burnt. Didn't think anyone could mess up breakfast, but they did.

This a the small town diner that you hope to come across when traveling. It is only about 4 minutes off I-70. My food was good. My husbands said his meat lover breakfast skillet was awesome. Staff was very friendly. Skillet was $7.95! It is open for breakfast and lunch.

In town visiting family. Wanted to get together for breakfast at a good local place. Our relatives suggested this place. It was perfect. Nothing fancy. Food isn't GREAT but good. CHEAP! Good local flavor! I went with the Ultimate Skillet: Hash Browns Topped with Bacon, Ham, Sausage, Peppers, Onions, Cheese, Gravy, 2 Eggs & Toast. Perfect!

This is what a hometown diner should be. Nothing fancy just good food served fast. I had the Chicken fried steak. It was terrific.

If you drive I-70 between Colorado and Utah, this is a good, easy stop for a good breakfast or lunch. The breakfast choices are standard, but the bacon and pancakes are particularly tasty. Price is very reasonable and the staff is friendly and solicitous.

We lived in Fruita for 13 years and Judy's was our favorite breakfast joint! Don't miss out, you'll always get a great meat meal with friendly service.

Visited here for breakfast rather than one of the "chain" eating places and it was a good choice. There were already a lot of people in here, so that was a good sign. Fast service, brought me the menu and a coffee straight away. I ordered the 2 eggs special, lovely breakfast, well-cooked. Really enjoyed my visit here. Would recommend... More
