We ate here on recommendation of the camp host, Rick, at Lightner Creek Campground. The breakfast was great, the diner was a hoot, lots of old time memorabilia everywhere, and watching the other patrons was great fun. Kids, mountain men (and women), tourists and regulars. Just lots of fun and good diner food. It's a small place, so you may... More

Great meals at a reasonable price...Killer pies. The place will make you feel at home. Reminds me of what Durango used to be like and worth going out for.

Just a typical local diner. Nothing special. Cool inside decor. Busy. Pancakes are good and so are the hash browns. Just know that this is a diner so go in with that in mind. Coffee not good though.

We were looking for a new place to enjoy breakfast and read the high ratings of Oscars, so thought, why not? The diner is very narrow and tight seating (hey! it's a diner!) with a cute little train on tracks that runs around the top of the walls.If you like biscuits and gravy, store bought (not farm fresh) eggs, then...

Classic diner with outstanding food. Ate breakfast at Oscar’s in Durango. Had the Santa Fe special: Hashbrown pancake with onions and sausage, topped with 2 eggs and hatch green chili sauce and a tortilla. YUM!

We have been there twice. In both cases, the food was ordinary, the service slow and the facility much too crowded. Hardly the best in Durango.

The food was great. The coffee was great. Our hosts brought us here because this is one of their favorite spots for breakfast. I didn't eat again until dinner! Very casual, very friendly. I had a breakfast burrito and was warned that it was very large and I'm proud to say that I retained my membership in the clean-plate club.... More

We were in Durango for a soccer tournament, and wanted something more than a hotel breakfast. Luckily we followed the recommendation of others and tried it out! The line to get in was scary at first, but it moved quickly. Great atmosphere! Will be back for sure!

The French Toast has a crunchy outside which was unusual...must be deepfried. Very tasty but of course sweet. Service was good, but the place is tiny and needs to expand into the space next door.
