Must be a favorite place, it was busy. We both ordered the fried chicken and it was very good. Didn't have to wait long for anything.

Good breakfast fare and service. Clean Place. Wife said her hash was just average. After leaving Colorado it was nice to stop at a restaurant that doesn't gouge with their prices.
