Found this place on trip advisor and we are so glad we did! We had an excellent breakfast before we rode the train and the service can not be beat.

The first thing to know about Oscars is that it is not a "restaurant/bar" like so many places in Durango. It is an old fashioned diner. And its location is not historical or scenic. Instead it is located in a 1960s strip shopping center located...More

This is a very quirky, cute diner! Crowded but got in and ordered and served quickly. Had a Durango scramble very good. Plus we had biscuits, gravy and eggs good also. They serve a lot of food so come hungry!

The venue is a little smaller than I expected but the food was great. Large portions and the chili was great. We enjoyed watching the train go around but if they're busy I would recommend sitting out front. We'll definitely stop in again!

This is the best breakfast place we have ever found. I had the Ironman Omelet and it was fabulous. Stuffed with chives, mushrooms, white cheese, and bacon, and then covered in Oscar's homemade green chile sauce. Also highly recommended is their cinnamon roll! It should...More

I had heard that people in Colorado understood New Mexico green chili and you could find it in some places. Did we ever luck out! This is a charming place inside, (doesn't look like much from the outside, it's in a strip mall.) A train...More

So sorry your experience at Oscar's was not what you expected; like going to Del Frisco's, Morton's, and other top end places, sometimes things just don't mesh. Could have caught them on a bad day (although they were busy... More
