Quick stop for lunch. Smoker produces good pulled pork. Chicken fried steak sandwich and classic cheeseburger are good. Small but excellent service. Friendly and attentive staff.

We ate at The Dive last week. Although, my wife spilled her coffee, the woman who took care of us was cool and patient. The breakfast food was great, and all 4 of us were very pleased.

Turkey melt and chicken club were on point. The pulled pork was ok. Onion rings were awesome. Truly is a dive with decent food and higher than expected prices. One waitress was working inside and out and earned every dime she made.

Alex served us quickly and was very friendly. Cute place. We had the pulled pork and Dive burger. The food is fresh and homemade. Clean and inexpensive. Don't miss The Dive on your next trip to CO Springs.

We usually only eat breakfast here. Friendly service and solid eggs, potatoes and bacon ... what more can you ask for on a weekend morning? No frills, just good food and good coffee!

The name says it all. Food was good, service was good but the establishment fit the name to a T. The place is a converted house. If you want good fast food go. If you want atmosphere drive on own the street.

The barbecue pork was good; that was the only thing that was good about this dining experience. The sandwiches we had were greasy. The interior is exactly what the name suggests: a total dive. We sat down, the waitress brought our silverware to our table and literally dropped it in the middle of the table. She had wrapped her hand... More

This place truly looks like a dive but don't be fooled - it has fantastic food. Went here for lunch with some colleagues from work for the first time and we all loved it. There is a wide variety of hamburgers and sandwiches to choose. Good portions and excellent flavor. It is a very small place so go early or... More

This is THE place in the Colorado Springs area for EXCELLENT beef brisket. It is so well cooked and tastes so good that BBQ sauce is optional. I prefer it without. The next best Beef Brisket is about an hour south of Colorado Springs.

It was our first visit, and when we walked in we weren't welcomed, but merely told there was a 20 minute wait and we could go outside if we wanted to stay. Okay.... So we sat outside and looked at the menu, and saw that some counter space opened up, so went back in and got settled. Being our first... More
