A friend and I arrived at Oscar's at 11:50 fearing a packed house only to find 3 tables full in front of us. We sat down and waited to be served, the place filled up before we were taken care of with other tables being waiting on before us even though they had just arrived. Several tables who arrived after... More

Have been going to Oscars for years when visiting Durango. It is a local favorite. Went this past week and it was awful! The bacon was rancid and the waitress was very uninterested in hearing about it and didn't offer to do anything about it. The omelet filling was very skimpy. The muffin was burned. The waitress brought the wrong... More

My BLT was great, I also ordered a banana pie and I felt there was simply too much whipped cream, It was on the top and sides. Some would like it, but it was just too much for me.

Oscar's Café lives up to its reputation for serving the best breakfast in Durango. The only problem is that it's so popular that the queue stretches out on to the pavement. We managed to get in twice but were beat for a third visit! They serve every variation of an American breakfast in vast quantities. In fact,the only items missing... More

All the food was fantastic, with a large menu and large portions. The service was super fast and the staff very friendly. We will definitely be back if we come to Durango again.

We arrived at 11.30 and were sad to hear that we missed breakfast which was what we wanted. However, I soon cheered up when I was presented with the largest BLT in the world. It was enormous and delicious. I got the house potato salad with it and it had a nice mustardy flavor. My husband had a reuben and... More

We had breakfast at Oscar's today. It was our sons birthday and I asked if they could add a little extra whipped cream on his pancake. They did better than that! They brought out his pancake with a candle in it and had the entire restaraunt sing Happy Birthday! He was surprised and happy! The food was delicious. We got... More

I had breakfast on a Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago, quite late, still very crowded, a ten minute wait or so. I ordered poached eggs but they don't offer them; instead it was eggs that are basted in water. That plus sausage and toast and a pancake. It was all good enough, but nothing special. Eggs a little... More
