Great Huevos.

Best huevos in town. This is definitely a great breakfast place. Quick service, very large servings (we always get the half orders) and food cooked well. The huevos are different than often found in Colorado. The grilled tortillas are a nice touch.

Although this place doesn't have a very extensive menu, to me it's one of the best dinners in Colorado, and I know what I'm talking about cause I've visited many before. Everything they have tastes really good, but my favorite thing is the French toasts. They are buttery, soft and sweet; just perfection! This place only accepts cash but it... More

Food except for the way over cooked fries. I got the green chili burger which was delicious except that they smothered the sauce over burger and the bun was soggy and inedible. My son's loved the mini burger and French toast. The burrito was a big hit with hubby. Green chili had great flavor but not very spicy.

I think my expectations were too high based on previous reviews. This is a diner. Plenty of food (pile of hash-browns the size of a soda can), bacon with plenty of grease, good eggs and great OJ. Across the street from a park with plenty of homeless so be prepared. Would I go back? Probably not but go try it,... More

Good god that the food was amazing: flavorful, incredibly huge portion, and with 'must-have' green chili sauce; and great rustic coffee. The service was top notch. We had breakfast burrito, of course, with green chili sauce that was even bigger than the ones served at Chipotle; and the open-face double-patty green chili cheese hamburger topped with an egg. Here was... More

Omelets, burrito whatever you get you'll want to go back for more!! Comfortable spot and really good coffee. Give it a try and you'll be going as often as you can.

I like that this has a hip, diner feel. You will find many different types of people dining. The green chili smothered burger or burrito is a must have! Eat at the diner. Enjoy the experience!

Why doesn't this place have 5 solid stars?! The breakfast was yummy- made to order and HUGE! We've never not been able to finish our food but holy cannoli, were the portions here big! They were accommodating to our little one (14 months) and pleasant. The owner we presume (man behind counter) was super sweet-- recommended some activities in the... More

This is the place to go for breakfast. I especially love the breakfast burrito. I have mine covered half in half with country gravy and their spicy green chili. This is one of the best in the country. They have many other good options too. Many have strange names like the grump or the thing. What they have in common... More

I don't consider any part of the name of this place to be truthful other than "diner". Outdated and underwhelming atmosphere and CASH ONLY in 2015...but with their own ATM so they can make money on fees. What a deal. My younger brother suggested it as I'm new to the area and he sometimes goes there with his other military... More
