We loved everything about this diner. Definitely not just typical diner fare. The green chili is wonderful. I had the Padre sandwich which is a tasty turkey and bacon offering. Serving sizes are huge, so take that into account. We could stop talking about all...More

I’m new to the area and began searching for the best breakfast burrito in town. Several co-workers recommended King’s Chef Diner, downtown Colorado Springs, with the warning that they were good, but very expensive! I don’t mind a higher priced breakfast if it’s worth it.......More

Cool little diner with great atmosphere and location. You will always get enough food for a great price. Their egg dishes and burritos are fantastic, especially with their signature green salsa.

Very good breakfast! Make sure you ask how big something is before you order! The green chili was great. Perfect heat for me. This is a cash only place, so hit the atm before you go!

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
