Colorado’s Favorite Fried Chicken & Country Dinners!
“This well hidden eatery is a flavorful find! Even though Juniper Valley Ranch is out in the country and does nearly no advertising, reservations are highly recommended. The food is legendary with locals.”— Country Discovery Magazine
We are currently closed for our winter break. Our 67th season begins on March 30, 2018. See you then!
An experience for any out of towner or any local
I had passed Juniper Valley Ranch for over a year when my wife and I would venture down to Penrose or Canyon City for whatever it was we were doing. I continually vowed I would come eat here someday, and today was that day.
Reservations are extremely encouraged, and we did call ahead. In fact, do your research before you go because this place is only open Thursdays through Saturdays and around 5PM to 8PM, so you can see that this isn’t a place you just casually go to.
With that out of the way, let’s get down to food! We walked in and were…

Our family has been eating there for years, best fried chicken, taters, and cider anywhere. I sure miss when our family, the Goins’, lived up the road, it was always a must do while visiting.

Where do I begin? I guess I could start by saying how mad I am at myself for driving past this culinary slice of heaven for 31 years of my life and never stopping. Well tonight my wife and I had the best meal bar none that we’ve ever had. Not only was the food(and every last crumb) delicious but the service provided buy Hailey and Preston was very top notch. This is our new favorite place to eat and we will go back again. Well worth the 45min. drive. If you haven’t been here take my word…..you’re missing out.

I have had the pleasure of eating here twice and loved my experience both times. The food was delicious and the atmosphere made me feel immediately at home. I highly recommend this southern Colorado establishment.

We love coming here! Its a great family-style meal; the ham is amazing, as is everything else.

This is by far the best fried chicken you can get in Colorado. If there is a better place I sure have not found it. The atmosphere is wonderful, the employees are delightful and the food is top-notch. If you are looking for an amazing place to take your sweetheart, the visiting family or just treat yourself to a great meal this is this place to go.
