Good food and service on a Sunday evening with 7 guests. After arriving at our hotel the owner suggested Vern’s for dinner. Salads & beer bread was good.

We had dinner here on a Friday night. We had a wonderful and hard working waitress. The food was delicious, even the cow fries (aka Rocky Mountain Oysters). There's a saloon and a little gift shop as well. Great stop along Rt. 66.

We had a very pleasant evening at Vern’s. The food was excellent, the casual atmosphere was comfortable and the service was great! We loved the murals and posters on the walls too! We will return!

Alexis was absolutely wonderful! Her recommendations were excellent. The food was delicious and well worth the price. Nothing frozen. All freshly made. Good portions. One of the best Hole-in-wall restaurants ever. A definite go to if you're in the area!

Big Vern's was a recommendation from our motel management. My husband and I had dinner here on Wednesday evening around 6:00pm. Our waitress was a little inattentive considering the small number of people in the restaurant. The food was good, not great, but the prices...More
