I haven't eaten at Johnson's Corner in about 30 years, but have driven past it maybe 50 times in the last 4 years, back and forth to FOCO from our home in Canon City. We are building a new home about 2 miles north and I finally decided to stop yesterday morning. It was pretty much the same as I... More

Our first stop in Colorado and we were excited to give it a try. Breakfast was really good, not quite as special as I was expecting. We tried the cinnamon roll which was huge and easily shared by 3. Service was good. It was a good breakfast but a bit on the expensive side and nothing super special.

Johnson's Corner has that really cool retro old-fashioned "traveling down the road and need to stop to rest and eat" kind of atmosphere. It's been there for over 50 years! It's clean, the staff is super friendly, the food is down home cooking delicious, the prices are very reasonable, and their cinnamon rolls are world famous. If you go there,... More

We stopped here on our way home from a day in the mountains. We were seated right away and the menu selection was very good. They are open 24 hours and you can get everything on the menu no matter what time of day it is. There is a deli section as well as a very well stocked in house... More

I grew up in a home that my dad made the BEST cinnamon rolls in the world. His were better than these, sorry! The rolls are big, but I found these cinnamon rolls to be very dry and the frosting was nothing special, But the other food was pretty good, the portions are hearty and the food is good comfort...

They are famous for their cinnamon rolls. They are not bad, but not great either. My favorite is their country fried steak. It is very good. The new ownership has also upgraded the quality of the food. It is a truck stop, not a gourmet restaurant. As long as that is what you are looking for, you will not be... More
