Ate lunch here with my husband and daughter-in-law. True diner experience! Wait staff was efficient and friendly. I was glad you could order half portions. I had the Pablo sandwich and fries. Excellent even if it did fall apart! My daughter-in-law ordered the breakfast burrito full portion. It was huge! She did not earn the "I cleaned my plate" sticker.... More

We tried the restaurant based on prior TripAdvisor reviews and were not disappointed. The service was super-friendly and quick. And the food was generously portioned and reasonably priced. Seemed to be a lot of locals and regulars which is a good sign.

Can’t believe I’ve lived here for 17 years and didn’t eat here until this year. Portions are no kidding ginormous – the second time I visited, I split one burrito with the Hubs and we were both satisfied. The green chile deserves all the accolades it has received over the years as it really is jam-packed with flavor and a... More

Bring a big appetite and some small change (very inexpensive) to the King's Chef Diner. Very casual, lots of tables, friendly staff, and HUGE plates of very tasty food.

I was in Colorado Springs for work and really wanted to try this place, but didn't think I'd have a chance since they were only open for breakfast and lunch and I'd be in a conference all day. Well, much to my delight, upon returning from an off-site event, we passed the diner and I noticed they had a big... More

Everything tasted great. Service was friendly and fast. But, part of the reason it tasted great was a very heavy hand with the fats (butter, oil or whatever). It was a guilty pleasure.

This place is a great find. King-sized portions but plenty of smaller options for people with normal appetites. Service is quick and friendly. The options are tasty. An overall best-buy. Note that this is a cash-only establishment with an on-premises ATM.

Loved the diner feel along with the friendly staff. The food was pretty good too. I had a bronco steak and cheese. The ingredients tasted fresh. The restaurant overall was a great lunch spot for everyone.

I'm not sure about the negative reviews...there are 2 locations and we went to the original on E Bijou street...maybe that's the difference? Regardless, I'll venture to say it's the best breakfast burrito I've ever had. The diner is tiny but the service great and it has a really cool vibe. Can't go wrong with this spot in my opinion....

I've been to the original location and LOVED my famous breakfast burrito. This time I chose the mini. While the green chili is totally delicious, I was disappointed that my burrito "innards" were lacking. It was a lot of hashbrown and not much egg or sausage or even green chili! The coffee and side of bacon were delicious. Next time... More
