Just average

Stopped here because it was recommended by the hostess on the train. Bad advice. The service was slow, the food was average and not even as good as Taco Bell. And Taco Bell is less than half the price of this over priced junk. There are much better places in Alamosa to spend one's money.

Visited Oscars on a family vacation. The food was quite good. The complimentary chips and salsa for a party of five consisted of a small cereal bowl of chips and refills were charged. The service was beyond lousy. After getting our food we tried on numerous occasions to flag down our waitress for refills to no avail. Finally we asked... More

The restaurant was okay. Very clean. Wait staff was slow, food was bland, salsa was watered down way too much and still spicy. The only thing good was the chips!

We live in Oregon and have a family cabin in Jasper right outside of Alamosa. So for 20 years whenever we visit the cabin we eat here for the Chili Rellenos as you can not get authentic mexican food in Oregon. We came in after 2 when the. buffet was done and watched the meticulous cleaning for the buffet as... More

I'll admit it. I was a bit worried when I walked in and saw how dirty this place was. Add to that the fact that food on the buffet looked as though it had been sitting there forever. My family and I would have walked out had we not been so tired from a long day of travel. We decided... More

After spending the week in Alamosa we were looking for someplace that we hadn't been to for lunch. We decided to try Oscars I tried the buffet instead of ordering off the menu. That decision proved to be a wise one. The food on the buffet had a very good spiciness to it which is unusual for buffet food. The... More

I love Oscar's. I eat here at least once a week. Their food is homemade and fresh. I like the buffet which is a great value, includes all you can eat plus 2 enchiladas, a drink, and desserts. The food is consistently good. The owners are always there overseeing the food preparation. The service is fast and friendly. They even... More

My daughters and I used to go to Oscar's before their original building burned down, but I hadn't been there in years since they rebuilt in a new location. My husband and I decided to try them gain after a lesuirely morning at the local farmer's market. Oscar's kindly allows them to use their parking lot area. The restaurant is... More

Excellent value. On a trip from Vail to Santa Fe, this was probably the first decent town to stop at for food. The atmosphere was nice, clean, and decor befitting its menu. Not where I would go for dinner out for a big occasion, but a nice place for lunch , good food reasonably priced with average service.
