Don't go if you are in a hurry

That is meant as a good thing. This place is really small, with excellent food so it is very busy all the time. You may have to wait for a table. They specialize in homemade pies, but the food servings are so big, we didn't have room for any this trip.

Whew! Finding breakfast on Sunday morning means putting your name on a list then waiting, no matter where you go. Places are small. We decided on Oscars after reading reviews. Very crowded!!! In a small plaza but cute interior. Food was well made and service polite but we did wait 25-30 min. Be prepared!

Authentic home cooked diner-type experience! I thoroughly enjoyed eating at Oscar's! It is a little cramped, but that added to the atmosphere in my opinion. The food was timely, large portioned and delicious!

We were advised of this restaurant by a local of Durango who worked at the Durango narrow gauge train station. We were pleased to find a small diner with excellent food and pretty decor. Folks are so friendly in the mountains of Colorado and we would definitely recommed this diner for breakfast and lunch. I believe they do not serve... More

My husband had the carb overload. The pancake was huge. We loved the bacon I had the French Toast special. I cleaned my plate. Great stuff. Planning on going back later for the home made pies.

We ordered 3 adult meals two child meals and a side of bacon. Juices for all 5. The food was very good. I am used to lower prices in Texas I guess. This was 73, which included a preset gratuity..

Oscar's seemed to be the breakfast spot of choice when I researched a trip to Durango. Food was fine, but not as huge or perfectly prepared as at Durango Diner. It does get busy, so prepare to wait for a table. Order was correct, but my eggs were over easy not medium. Sausage omelette had lots of sausage and was... More
