Be prepared to wait on weekends. The scrumptious food is well worth the wait. Their omelets are beyond comparing. The servers are the best. The cafe was so good we kept returning without trying other places to eat.

Want to eat great food in a cool atmosphere surrounded by locals? AND have one of the owners cook for you? AND watch the little train go around and around the room? This is the place. Great menu, great pricing, wonderful décor, and super friendly waitresses. The "cook" turned out to be one of the owners, and he and his... More

Highly recommend this place, chose it after reading the reviews. Small diner type atmosphere, very friendly staff, reasonable prices. Had the chicken chimighanga special, yummy!

This place essentially only serves during the breakfast hours. And man was it ever busy. For me the bacon was too burned and the toast was cold. But somehow the ambiance made up for it. The GO TO place for breakfast.

My son has a peanut allergy and when I called to ask if they use nuts in there food, the lady said she was busy and hung up on me. We will never eat at this restaurant.

If a greasy buttery high cal breakfast is what you're after, this place is for you. Quality was poor, coffee not great, and healthy choices were lacking. Disappointing.

We ate at Oscar’s on a Tuesday at almost 2 pm and it was still packed with locals. There is a reason for this and it is the quality of the service and the food. Both were excellent. Oscar’s is known for its breakfasts but our lunch was the best we ate in Durango. Our burgers, sandwiches and just plain... More

Our server was kind and attentive, the food was amazing and interesting (we're from Ohio and hadn't had the green chili that's so popular here), the atmosphere was adorable, the other guests friendly and the owner, Bruce, was great! If we find ourselves in Durango again, we'll definitely go back.

The only thing that kept me from doing a 5 star is their lack of turkey or chicken sausage. We had the french toast and eggs - cooked to perfection. Even the syrup was heated. Service was excellent, servers really nice. We're coming back tomorrow!
