I’m giving this five stars for the first visit even though the second time wasn’t as great. I had the farmers scramble and it was so freaking good. The potatoes were so good, the biscuits so good, the eggs, so so good. Love the organic...More

Me and my daughter had breakfast and it was a treat. Do not go here expecting anything fancy but you will get great service and delicious food. The biscuits are amazing. Hash browns are not your typical ihop shredded potatoes, not that those are bad,...More

My college student friends who live on a budget took me here early (before 8AM) to catch the early bird special--2 eggs, hash browns, and one of Dot's famous very large biscuits. Our server was super friendly and our orders came back quickly. And squeezing...More

I have had breakfast here at least once a week for 25 years. You don’t go for the atmosphere you go for the food, especially the huge, fresh buttermilk biscuit with their special raspberry jam in a large squeeze bottle. What I love is I...More

As the years have passed and sooooooo many memories and excellent grub for the right price at Dots, I finally had the Nepalese special of Chana Masala and LOVED it. It’s actually easy to find something you want more of at this place.

You can still get a good breakfast under $20! Great service, good food and cheap bill. What more could you ask for?! When in Boulder, I'll be back!

My hubby got Huevos Rancheros and I got an egg sandwich on a biscuit with avocado and hash browns. The service was fast and the food was great! The bill was only $18 and both of us were full.

We enjoyed our breakfast here very much. I had basic eggs, potatoes, and bacon, with a biscuit and a side of grits. The biscuit was especially good, and the hashbrowns were peppery and good. Happy camper here. Oh, and the service was very good, too...More

Inexpensive diner with great breakfast fare. Nothing fancy in a strip mall setting. Epitome of what a great diner should be.

Hands down the best biscuits in town. The housemade chai is also excellent. The waitstaff can be a bit rough around the edges but have found them usually friendly. This is not fine dining . This is a diner in the truest form. Ripped seats...More
