My family decided to try Oscar's as the Durango locals seem to treat this cafe as an iconic part of the community. We decided to see for ourselves! What a disappointment to say the least. Very long wait, understandable because it is a small cafe...More

Great place for breakfast. Wide, varied menu and great service. Servers were prompt and very friendly. Very generous portions. We split our meal. Will have breakfast there the next time we are in Durango.

Primarily a breakfast/lunch place with large portions and delicious pancakes. The restaurant is very small and can fill quickly on weekends and holidays with substantial wait during the prime time. It can be worth it but sometimes the wait is too long and the locals...More

Hubby and I ate here while driving though. Tasty little place and love the nostalgic feel. Food was great, service was great, and price was totally reasonable.

Great diner feel to the place. Service was quick. We both had burgers and fries. The chocolate cream pie was pretty good as well.

Stopped by here for my first breakfast after completing the 484-mile Colorado Trail. Love the fact that their hash browns have green chiles and cheese fried up inside them -- best hash browns I've had in a long time. The small kitchen does a great...More

So sorry your experience at Oscar's was not what you expected; like going to Del Frisco's, Morton's, and other top end places, sometimes things just don't mesh. Could have caught them on a bad day (although they were busy... More
