Hash brown pancake with green chile and cheese topped with a couple of over-easy eggs and homemade hot sauce! Perfection!

Oscar's cafe is a locals cafe for sure. It is not located in the Main Avenue or side streets but in small strip shops with a grocery store and hardware store. Hidden. Big menu covering anything and everything you could want for breakfast and at good prices. Very small so things can get tight. This is old style dinner for... More

We ate two different meals here. The first time we missed breakfast so ate brunch here. Burger and fries for one and omelet for other one. All the food was good.

We had the opportunity to sit at the counter and watch the food being made, and oh my. When a hamburger was delivered w/ only a bun, the wait staff took it back to the chef, who scraped green chile off another burger on the grill, and put it on the bun for delivery. Everything was greasy - I couldn't... More

There were so many delicious looking options on the menu we couldn't decide until the waitress brought a plate of biscuits and gravy to the table behind us. My husband was sold,... More

We really enjoyed brunch at Oscar's, we were surprised that there was a wait at 9:45 am on a Tuesday but once we're seated we understood why, it's delicious, very friendly and hard working staff.

The employees were kind and quick to get your order and get the food out. The portions are HUUUGE I could hardly finish my Southwest Breakfast Burrdo! 3 out of 5 of us couldn't finish the food! My meal itself wasn't that good but that's just me. The other 4 people I went with lived there meals! So maybe its... More

Great breakfast spot in a strip mall. Fantastic breakfast and wonderful service by a very young and well trained crew. Busy but definitely worth the wait.

I had the Mex Brex. It had a golden hashbrown pancake with green chilies, cheeses, crowned with two eggs, salsa, toast and sour cream. It was outstanding, give it a try when you go there. The service was great too!!!!
