No doubt the food was good but just good...nothing exceptional. We waited almost 1/2 hour for breakfast for just two people. $16.99 for a skirt steak that was paper thin is ridiculous.

This is very close to the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, which we were in town for, and it is delicious. We went for breakfast two days and the menu is huge.

Stopped for a late brunch on a Sunday afternoon. Had a great Denver/Western omelet. The coffee wasn't as bold as I like, but everything else was excellent. Wouldn't hesitate to stop again when in the area.

Amazing food, huge portions. We ate for breakfast and couldnt even eat all we got! So amazing...I got the lite breakfast with eggwhites and it was as big as my plate. Watch when ordering some come with juice and so dont order juice and then you will be paying more...a little pricey but yummy
