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

The usual breakfast fair but with flair. Apparently someone there likes the traditional 50's diner ambiance because this place has a lot of it! Photos, signs and other stuff makes the place more than a strip mall breakfast joint! Had one pancake which was the...More

I live in Durango; fortunately we have a handful of good to excellent diners. Oscar's is not one of them. I consistently get bad food here. Today I ordered the pastrami special. The meat was so grisly that I couldn't chew it. To the waitress'...More

This cafe was like a blast from my past spending summers with my grandparents, going to ma & pa diners to eat. Great atmosphere and price; friendly, attentive staff and prompt service. Good food, large portions go hungry or be prepared to take some home....More

Well worth a breakfast stop but, like a true diner, it's bustling with activity and noise. Who cares unless you're hoping for an intimate setting? The food is great. Casual, efficient, go for it.

Okay, did not know much about Durango during my recent business trip, but found this diamond in the rough for breakfast and will put it on my "return to" list. Oscar's Café is like walking back in time, old time diner with really good food....More

Place isn't bad but I'm not too happy I stopped. Food is mediocre. The staff was friendly and the restaurant was busy. None of our food (tuna melt and cheese burger) were bad but the restaurant isn't particularly clean nor the food particularly good.

Great breakfast. Could have split an entree. That would have saved room for a cinnamon roll. They looked fabulous. No one would give us a bite. Definitely would go back.

We stopped here because of the TA reviews. There are way too many choices for breakfast! I decided to do the Verde Mess and it was delicious. My wife did the bacon/avocado omlete. If you are really hungry, attempt the cinnamon roll. Ask for the...More
