We had been out of the country for a week and just gotten into Golden the night before. We were both hungry for a real American breakfast. This place is as good as any small town café anywhere. Thanks for the breakfast we had been craving.

I have eaten at Golden Diner fifteen or twenty times over the last couple years. During those many visits, I have encountered wild fluctuations in the quality of food and service. Some days it is decent, others it is quite good or simply awful. Not a big gambler myself, and as a result, I eat here less and less.

We had a Sunday breakfast at the Golden Diner. The Diner serves only breakfast and lunch and closes at 3pm. Sundays are crowded (at least today). Our name was taken and we waited - normal. We had our baby with us in a stroller. We were seated at a table and the waiter made space for the stroller - very... More

If you're looking for a little local diner with a good cup of coffee and breakfast food that's the perfect amount of greasy, this is your spot. We only ate here once on our week-long stint in Golden, but could have easily gone back every day. Service is friendly and fast. The place gets busy, though, so if you're wanting... More

It's a decent local utility diner, in the downtown area. It was good but we were in no hurry to return, due to many other options. It took us awhile to get initial recognition and service after the guy in front said to "sit anywhere." I guess he neglected to tell anyone where we sat. So, with a cranky start,... More

A great place for breakfast. I have never been there for lunch but the menu did have several things I would try. They have some cleverly named breakfast entrees (The Dude, The Hobo). I've had "The Dude" and it is a delicious blend of veggies and potatoes with chees covered in their green chili topped with 2 eggs your style.... More

And it was in route to our destination so we decided to try it. The food was excellent my husband had the feta cheese omelette and I... More

Pretty much what you would expect but done to perfection. One of the best huevos rancheros I've had, and I've had a lot! This one had chorizo with black beans and a green chili sauce, it was awesome! Of course so we're all the other dishes we tried as well. Our waiter was very friendly and took good care of... More

Golden is a great little town with a ton of old west atmosphere. The Diner was a great stop. The staff was FANTASTIC and FRIENDLY. The food was great, service great. Highly recommend this as a stop in Golden.
