Diner food but tastes made from scratch. Greasy, yummy, gigantic portions, and SO worth the visit. Whatever you get, try it covered in the red chile or green chile. I could eat that stuff with a spoon out of the jar (they sell it).

Great old time breakfast, when you order hash browns they grab a pototTo, and grate it on the grill. Good green chili, cafe coffee, and gruff service. Sit at the counter, no much other seating.

Eat here for the experience, not the food. It is a diner in the true sense. The pancakes are decent, but everything else we had was bland. (even the coffee).

Definitely a must when in Durango!!! Gary and the staff at the diner were awesome! The food and service were second to none. We had the French dip and cheeseburger! Do yourself a favor and visit this place for the food and hospitality.
