Great breakfast diner

Where do you begin with this place? As you pull up, you see a small purple Disney-style castle. That's the diner. It's fantastic. Yes, it's a little cosy (there's about 10 spots around the bar), but the food makes up for it. They serve it in 1/4 and 1/2 portions for normal people. I foolishly... read more

I love eating local and this is a fun place for breakfast. Huge portions but they offer 1/2 and 1/4 size plates, which are more realistic amount for most people. This is comfort food.

We had read great reviews about this restaurant before we stopped in for breakfast. The food was good but not outstanding. Not at all what I had expected.

The original location, was in a super small location 3-4 blocks south of Bijou and been going here ever since. Definitely not a health food restuarant. But gosh is this good. Awesome place to just pig out and enjoy the great food.

Definitely not a healthfood restaurant. If you want a pile of carbs, calories & grease stop in for breakfast. If you are young this may be your place.

Best huevos in town. This is definitely a great breakfast place. Quick service, very large servings (we always get the half orders) and food cooked well. The huevos are different than often found in Colorado. The grilled tortillas are a nice touch.

Although this place doesn't have a very extensive menu, to me it's one of the best dinners in Colorado, and I know what I'm talking about cause I've visited many before. Everything they have tastes really good, but my favorite thing is the French toasts. They are buttery, soft and sweet; just perfection! This place only accepts cash but it... More

Food except for the way over cooked fries. I got the green chili burger which was delicious except that they smothered the sauce over burger and the bun was soggy and inedible. My son's loved the mini burger and French toast. The burrito was a big hit with hubby. Green chili had great flavor but not very spicy.

I think my expectations were too high based on previous reviews. This is a diner. Plenty of food (pile of hash-browns the size of a soda can), bacon with plenty of grease, good eggs and great OJ. Across the street from a park with plenty of homeless so be prepared. Would I go back? Probably not but go try it,... More

Good god that the food was amazing: flavorful, incredibly huge portion, and with 'must-have' green chili sauce; and great rustic coffee. The service was top notch. We had breakfast burrito, of course, with green chili sauce that was even bigger than the ones served at Chipotle; and the open-face double-patty green chili cheese hamburger topped with an egg. Here was... More
