Breakfast here is a unique experience and worth having if in Colorado Springs. The portions are huge and despite 12 US Army Soldiers eating here none of us could clean our plate despite how great the food was...which say's a lot about the portions. The Green Chile can be a bit hot so order it on the side if you... More

My wife had the Grump (some of the best tasting hashbrowns ever), I had the King Rancheros and they offer a full size, 1/2 and 1/4 size plates. The full size is huge. I tend to eat a lot with training and I was unable to finish a full plate. They do green chilies and all different kinds of deliciousness.... More

Great food and great diner ambiance. Reminds me of a tiny place my Grandpa used to take me in Gilroy CA. The portions are amazingly large. The half order on most items is still more than you get elsewhere. The prices are a tad bit higher, but you get a lot for your money. The green chili and the sausage... More

Wow! Here, let me say it again, WOW! Absolutely amazing in all aspects of amazing! When I walked in, I was greeted by the gentleman behind the counter with a good morning and "Sit wherever you like, pick a good one!" I liked that! I found the unique greeting warm and friendly and immediately felt comfortable. The menu's not huge,... More

Went for breakfast with the boyfriend and loved the food! We travel extensively and have always found small, local venues to be the best and this most certainly didn't disappoint!

Ordered green chili as a side dish for burger was told the don't have spoons. That was weird, we said we need a spoon so they finally brought use one, we asked why no spoons, was told by our waitresses that the hand wash their dishes so they do paper cups and no spoon - so being an established business...

The breakfast burrito was big and good. The green chile sauce is SPICY. Gravy was good. Service was friendly. Be aware that this place is LOUD, due to it being a trendy/hipster atmosphere. Worth a stop.

One huge burrito! We had breakfast. I would suggest the burrito covered in green chili sauce. It will not disappoint. There was a short wait but quick service. Nothing upscale, just fun. If you finish your food, you get the "clean plate" sticker!

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
