We visited for a late breakfast found location from yelp. Very pleased. Service was great. The famous breakfast burrito is a must, be sure you try the green sauce. And best French toast we have ever had!

What a great way to start the day! Breakfast was served quickly in a SMALL diner. Customers sit at the counter and interact with the cook and servers who are eager to keep customers happy. THE PORTIONS ARE HUGE. The Thing was a delicious breakfast. Again, just so we are clear here....THE PORTIONS ARE HUGE. This is a must if... More

There famous breakfast burrito deserves its reputation! Big enough to fill you up, filled with scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns and who knows what other goodness. The best is the green chili sauce that is on top. Will definitely wake you up with its tangy and spicy amazing flavor. Coffee was great, atmosphere funky, service was wonderful. Wish it weren't...

What's better than gravy and green chile at breakfast??? A lot of it. King Chef has great food and specialty items such as the Grump. A great find in Colorado Springs downtown dining.

We found this diner heaven early on after re-locating here. We have great experiences, the breakfast is great. Best of all are the burgers; juicy, BIG, and loaded. Put that with a seat outside to enjoy the human zoo, it don't get any better. Re-locating soon to Greeley but we'll make the trip back about once a month. Check this... More

Opted to head here instead of the budget hotel breakfast buffet. Best decision all day! This highly rated diner is on a corner in downtown C-Springs next to a park (Acacia?). Not much to look at from the outside, but expansive and inviting, with a tablespoon of funky once inside. Egg scramble for the daughter and the breakfast burrito for... More

Members of my party had visited the location on Costilla Street many years ago. We decided to meet at the Bijou and Nevada location yesterday for a later breakfast. We got seated immediately and the host explained a little about the menu. We were warned in advance about the portion sizes. They were not kidding! These portions-for everything-are huge. You...

We had the half breakfast burrito and it was more than enough for us. The green salsa was excellent, a little spicy, but not to hot. My husband had the gravy on his and he said the gravy was delicious. Would definitely go back, but leaving town tomorrow.

My boyfriend and I were in Colorado Springs for the weekend and found this diner while wandering around downtown. We split an omlet and an order of the French toast and I've been thinking about it ever since. The omlet was good with lots of cheese but the French Toast was out of this world! You should know before you... More

The food here is always amazing. Regardless if you are stumbling in after the bars close to wrap up a night out with friends or having breakfast with the family. Great green chili and some of the best gravy I've found north of the mason Dixon
