We found this little gem by researching on Trip Advisor. We were immediately sat at a table beside two gentlemen who were from Durango. After a bit, we talked to them and they were so friendly and gave us good pointers about the area and what to see. The lady who sat us, told us a few favorites that people... More

Oscar's is very popular and we have had one good experience before today. At about 1120 am we went in, were given menus, and nothing happened until I wave them at one of the staff. "Who's got table 10?' Well the person that did was busy on the phone, then went to helping someone with their iPhone. We waited and... More

Great little place and well worth the wait if a line exists. Super good breakfast menu, best home fries in town.

Great, friendly service, good food, reasonable prices. Oscar's Cafe really knows what it is doing. The food might not be gourmet, but it's down-home and rib-sticking, and the workers we encountered really made us feel welcome. Lots of intriguing food items on the menu - we'll be back to try more after today's tasty breakfast.

This was the best breakfast place I have ever been too. The pancakes were huge and amazing tasting. The chili verde was to die for. Best place in Town!

Their menu had a nice selection of breakfast items on it. We had a couple of eggs and the French toast. I might be in the minority here but the French toast was fried and literally candy-like. I like a nice, light French toast. The flavor was great, however. It was a bit odd--first my boyfriend's eggs came out, a... More

It's where locals can be seen and good food eaten! The only place in town with honest to goodness pies. Breakfast selections are extensive with the added flavor of their own green Chile. And who wouldn't like to eat, at least one time, deep fried French toast with warmed maple syrup. Classic diner atmosphere and fare. Located in the Town... More

My partner and I stopped here en route to Mesa Verde in the middle of a weeklong road/camping trip. We arrived after 11am so breakfast was no longer being served. We typically love little hole in the wall places like this one, so we were excited to try it based on reviews from other Trip Advisor members, but we were... More

After a week backpacking, we look forward to a great breakfast at Oscar's. It's a tradition. Try the sausage, it's fresh and flavourful
