This use to be our go-to spot close to home with good diner food options. In fact, for 30 years we came here once a week. But, starting with the sale to TA a couple of years ago, the place has gone solidly downhill. It has gotten to the point that we just won't go there at all. I miss... More

We have been making the drive to Johnsons Corner for years. We always had great home cooked meals and good service. Sadly it was bought by a corporation and is no longer a place we will visit again. We ordered the turkey dinner which was almost inedible. The meat was dry and tasteless and the dressing was burned. We bought... More

Just isn't what it used to be. . . Food was below par. Service alright. Of course, maybe I am just getting old and grumpy but, I think it was much better in the 70's-90's. Quite frankly, it's also too bad they're not open 24 hours a day.

I was expecting wonderful cinnamon buns and great home cooked foods. But the desert was okay and the food was filling but on part with Dennys.

We were so disappointed in the quality of the food here now that our favorite local historic truck stop sold to another owner. The special was sloppy Joe's, and they were so greasy that the bun of unknown origin soaked it up like a sponge. My husband's hamburger was okay but just average compared to previous to the change in... More

So this is my second time here. First time, did a drive through for a cinnamon roll. WORLD CLASS NO DOUBT. So this time I brought my wife and we sat and had breakfast. I ate the breakfast burrito, she had the chicken fried steak, and she had to try to the cinnamon roll french toast. So we did. Wow,... More

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
