Oscars offers rib-sticking, well-priced, sandwiches, homemade soups and indulgent homemade pies. A first thing to know is that Oscars's closes by 2-3pm daily, so get there early. If you are a health nut with no desire to branch out, stick with the soup. If you...More

Located in a strip mall, parking is ample. Small & a bit cramped, the food is worth the tight space. The regular Hamburger comes with fries. There are other alternatives for a side, but you wouldn't want to miss out on the seasoned fries. Portions...More

The food is absolutely fantastic? Everything from their hamburgers to their cinnamon rolls are great! It is just a little space and very crowded. The food also takes a while to come out, but it is so good. I want to go there again!

Being native to the area for some reason we had not tried Oscars because we look for the "Mom and Pop" places before we ever consider the chains. We met our daughter and family there last week and wish we hadn't. The waitress was great...More

This is a locals favorite, but the last few times I've been there I have been disappointed. This time they forgot to put in my order, then when I got it, it had dog hair in the soup. She offered $1 off for the inconvenience....More

This very small restaurant had been highly recommended, so we gave it a go. We had a fantastic , huge, breakfast, with excellent service, and smiling faces everywhere. They have home-made patty sausage and cinnamon rolls! This is a do-not-miss breakfast spot in Durango.

We enjoyed a Mother's Day "lunch" at Oscar's with a wonderful omelette! I had the sautéed mushroom and cheese while my husband had the ham and cheese. Both were overstuffed, fluffy and delicious. The lunch sides included a choice of fries, fresh fruit, cottage cheese,...More

What a great little place to eat. Friendly staff, great food and very close to downtown. We will be back for breakfast tomorrow before we head home.

My husband and I love a good breakfast and Oscar's did not disappoint us. My husband had eggs with green chili and I had a pancake. Both were delicious. Service was friendly, attentive and quick.
