If you are a big breakfast lover like I am you have to visit this place. Just the menu itself is a hoot.., The Grump, The Thing, and The Breakfast Burrito were all great. I was only in town 3 days but I had to come back after the first day,,,and the second. Didn't need to eat again until dinner,... More

I like breakfast and this place serves the best using outstanding ingredients with portions designed for any appetite (full, half, even quarter). The full offerings are gigantic but they are so good it is difficult to stop consuming them. Calorie counters can opt for smaller shares. Service is efficient and professional. I wish I could get beyond the breakfast menu... More

I've resisted visiting this place for years because I've heard it's a greasy spoon. I'm so glad I finally went! I had vegetarian green chili over potatoes and caramelized onions. I ordered the 1/4 portion. Cheap and delicious and not greasy! I'll be back!

I came here twice to grab a burrito when I visited springs couple of months back. I have been told that tourist often come here just for the burrito and I am so satisfied with the LARGE portion and the mere taste of it (even half orders would be good for sharing). The combination of cheese, egg, bacon and green... More

My aunts took me here on a recent visit, so fun! Awesome diner vibe and great food. Famous for its traditional green chile sauce, which does not disappoint. Had the breakfast burrito which was huge and filled with fresh hash browns, cheese, egg, and tempeh. Had the green chile on the side cause I'm a wuss with spicy stuff but... More

I came her with my friend while in town for a visit. The breakfast burrito, even the half portion, was a lot to eat. It was extremely tasty and the green chili sauce was very flavorful and just spicy enough. The prices are also good for the amount of food you get. They will also give you a "clean plate... More

This is, without a doubt, the best breakfast in Colorado Springs! I've been eating here for years, and it is absolutely delicious. The portions are HUGE, the price is right, the service is great, and as I said, the food can't be beat. My favorite is The Grump, but everything is tasty!

Have eaten there twice in the last couple weeks - reputed to be the best breakfast in Colorado Springs, & it's hard to argue against that. People are very nice, and the food was very good & plentiful. Very popular & deserves its great reputation.
