If in the area, this is a good place to eat. The food was good but nothing fancy. We had asked the lady at the museum where she would eat. She sent us to this cafe. The pies were excellent.

Good sandwiches at the Old West Cafe! Basics done right. BLT for me and grilled ham and cheese for my husband. Service was quick, but we were a bit ahead of the lunch rush that showed up by noon. Glad we beat the rush.

Stopped here for lunch on a road trip through the SW. Ordered green chili and a bowl of homemade chicken soup. Neither were very warm. Taste was average at best. Place could use a little updating and TLC.

Its a small local cafe. The service is good and the food was also good . The portions were much larger than you expected. Good value for breakfast. We ate there twice and would eat there again.

We stopped here after a visit to Sand Dunes National Park. We were starving, and yet, this was way too much food! I ordered the small burrito and was shocked at the enormous plate of food. The burgers were massive, too. Loved the french fries....More

Our family stopped here on the way back from camping in the Great Sand Dunes National Park. We wanted good food that was reasonably fast (but not fast food) and local if possible. We found it in Fort Garland! The menu has a pretty wide...More
