Hey everybody! We just got home from Grand Junction and got to check out the whole Ouray scene. On the way back we stopped in Ridgeway for lunch at the True Grit Cafe. Ridgeway is about 10 miles north of Ouray. Ridgeway is also were John Wayne filmed the movie True Grit. The cafe has all things John Wayne in it. The food is also very good! It's a very old west setting. If you're a John Wayne fan or like the old west it's worth the drive. MT

ps - I've never seen True Grit but we are going to rent it. My favorite John Wayne movie is The Cowboys!

MT, thanks so much for letting us know about this! I went through Ridgway several times last year and had no idea this was there. My boyfriend is a huge John Wayne fan, so he will think this is really cool!:bigthumb:

Thanks for pointing this out! Lots of people are going to be driving through Ridgeway to Ouray. Maybe a meet and greet?

We're still planning on driving through Shiprock on Sunday afternoon then staying overnight in Moab if you and your dad want to meet us for dinner. Same place as last time? :)

I ate at True Grits in Alamosa a couple of years ago. The walls were covered in John Wayne movie posters etc.
