Found by chance, located near motel. Was single, so sat at counter. A counter is a good sign. Very helpful waitress. Offered suggestions on the very impressive dinner menu. Went with a pasta dish and soup. Yum. Good draft beer selection. We will make this a new must stop location.

Went with some after a day of 4 wheeling. The wait wasn't that long but they were packed. It a while to take our order. Good thing we had alot to talk about. Finally when the food came I noticed the servings were huge, which was a good thing because we were all hungry. I ordered the Double Chin 🍔,... More

I have only eaten lunch and dinner here. They have a very home-style menu. The hamburgers are huge. Warm, friendly staff.

Sitting next to a motel right off Interstate 80 in Colfax, TJ's Roadhouse was a pleasant surprise. Good quality roast beef piled high in a sandwich, french fries fried in obviously fresh oil- what a nice change from your popular chain food coffee shops. Will have to try the steaks next time- looking forward to it! Fresh, aromatic coffee too.... More

My husband and I had breakfast here this morning. I will start on a positive note. Our waitress was friendly and so was the host. I ordered the chicken fried steak, scrambled eggs, hash browns and biscuit with gravy. My meal was good except the hash browns they were greasy. Now for the negative. My husband ordered two egg breakfast... More
