The food is delicious. Gary is a wonderful entertainer-conversation while you watch your food being prepared. A great locals place to go hearty portions, great green chili. We love to sit at the counter. It is what it is.

We went for breakfast at Durango Diner in April 2017. Their eggs with green Chile is so good! All the breakfast items we have are. Great rye toast, sausage, etc.

This is how diners are supposed to be, good basic food, served fast, and a place with character. Was an excellent way to start our week vacation.

Breakfast twice and I was not disappointed. Prepare yourself for a hearty helping! Always add some bacon.

I loves me a good diner, and this one is GREAT! Between the two of us, we've had six different dishes (both breakfast and lunch) and have been happy with them all. In fact, the corned beef hash was better than what I've had in...More
