Good service. Unfortunately people raved about breakfast and we were too late arriving after 11AM. Omelets were good although the veggie omelet was a bit dry. That was the the only breakfast item available other than a breakfast burrito

We have dined here before and had a great experience, but this time was not a good one. I ordered the biscuits and gravy. It wasn’t my favorite, but for almost $10, I wanted to eat most of it. I used my fork to cut...More

I highly recommend that you have breakfast at Oscars while visiting Durango. This is an old school diner with excellent service and food. Very fun atmosphere, tons of history on the walls and a fun little train that runs on a suspended track around the...More

For a small little cafe their breakfast serves a big punch. I had the OLÉ Omlette. Green chilies, cheddar and salsa were a maniacal mix. So much do, I cannot wait to go back. Wish I was a local so I could go back often.

There is almost always a line, and you will be glad you waited! This place is truly a "hole in the wall", but portions are generous and fresh and delish! Good for lunch or breakfast and the waitstaff is fast, clean, and courteous.

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
