This place is tiny and it gets hot when it is packed full of people. But, the breakfast is really good and you get plenty for your money. They also serve the best coffee ever --- Camp 4 Coffee. It is worth they wait if you have to, and worth the stuffy warmth. Folks are great there. Get there early... More

The food was amazing, the potions were huge, the coffee was stout, Overall the breakfast was one I would love to repeat. The waitress seemed to forget we were there.

We try to make it to McGills when we are in CB. Food is freshly prepared and plentiful. They are usually busy but process orders quickly and efficiently. I like the scrambles with hash browns while my son loves the eggs Benedict. Neither disappointed! Staff is busy but friendly. Make it a point to stop here for breakfast or lunch!

Visited during the Pro Cycling Challenge on the advice of other Tripadvisor posts. After reading that there was often a wait list we were prepared to wait, however it only ended up being about 8 minutes. My wife had the veggie scromlette and I had the breakfast burrito. The vegetarian green chile on the burrito was great and had a... More

We stopped here for breakfast twice and enjoyed it both times. The Denver Breakfast Tacos are fantastic. Have them with the home fries and you will not be disappointed. The green chili sauce is some of the finest I have ever tried; get some to take home with you. The biscuits are okay; stick with the toast. The wait staff... More

Atmosphere and food were good for breakfast, but our waitress was very rude! Would recommend if wait staff was better.

For a Sunday breakfast, we had about a 20 minute wait, but it was worth it. McGill's has a busy diner vibe, relaxed and friendly. I loved the special, huevos aquilles, with chorizo & ranchero sauce.

After an early morning drive over Kebler Pass, I was hungry. We’d seen plenty of chipmunks, a few deer and marmots and even a beaver in our drive. We love seeing wildlife. It makes us happy. But no more happy than a good meal at a good price. My wife had to make a conference call in the car and... More

My husband orders their french toast every time we eat there...different from regular french toast. I love the hamburgers and always have to have a "take home" as the helpings are so large.

A local place with a Colorado mountain town feel. The home fries are some of the best I've ever tasted. It's just good old down home breakfast food served by good old down home people. Portions are large and everything is made to order. This is what you imagine a small town diner should be.
