Good breakfast

Great blueberry pancake, really huge. Good service in a busy place. The eggs were good, but the bacon is precooked so not hot as was the hashbrowns.

If I lived in Durango, I would be there every day! This staff was really friendly and was very fast despite the fact that there were no empty tables. Obviously, they are used to a packed house and know how to handle it. There is plenty for your money (a pancake is literally the size of a hubcap and barely... More

Hubby and I split the cheese, bacon and avocado omelet. Plenty of food. It comes with homemade has Browns and choice of bread. Very good. Servers are friendly and efficient. 11 is the end of breakfast but guessing they have great lunches as well.

Went here for breakfast, and we're amazed. Not a big place, but outstanding food. Pancakes fill the whole plate, and are so light and fluffy. Omelet's are mouthwatering and generous. It has a 50's atmosphere, with great and fast service. Skip going to Denney's or another chain and get into Oscar's.

Food was less than average. Ordered a chicken burger with mushrooms. Burger buns were soggy. Side of fruit looked like it wasn't washed. Staff was too laid back almost unprofessional.

We went here for breakfast and we loved it. We got Durango scramble, sausage and eggs, and bacon and eggs- everything was great, especially the hash browns. Luckily there was an available table for our family when we arrived otherwise we would have to wait since this is a very small place. To us, this obviously was the place to... More

We went for a late breakfast at 11:15 am but had to settle for the lunch menu, they stop serving breakfast at 11 am. Our heart was set on breakfast but we decided to make the best of it. Both our sandwiches were good, but I did not enjoy the fries they were not cooked enough. We were never asked... More

We were told that the wait would be 30-45 minutes but it was actually only 20 minutes. The service was good despite the crowds. The Oscar special (2 eggs, 2 pancakes and 3 pieces of bacon) was delicious. I couldn't even finish one pancake due to the huge portion size. My sister loved the French toast. This café is worth...

You can tell this is a joint for the locals, because the wait staff knew everyone's names! I love that. We had an excellent breakfast. The kids ordered one pancake each - they are huge and very tasty. My husband ordered a french toast breakfast and I ordered the Mex Brex. YUM! Service was excellent, as was the food. The... More
