I asked around for a good breakfast place and everyone recommended Oscar’s. I had the breakfast burrito and my daughter had the chocolate chip cake. The hostess “Jess” was awesome! She was friendly, attentive, great recommendation, and just the best hostess! I will definitely make...More

For a small little cafe their breakfast serves a big punch. I had the OLÉ Omlette. Green chilies, cheddar and salsa were a maniacal mix. So much do, I cannot wait to go back. Wish I was a local so I could go back often.

There is almost always a line, and you will be glad you waited! This place is truly a "hole in the wall", but portions are generous and fresh and delish! Good for lunch or breakfast and the waitstaff is fast, clean, and courteous.

We went to Oscar’s because we were told by the locals that they had good chili. Maybe it’s because we are from Texas, but the chili was horrible and didn’t taste like chili. The onion rings were pure grease. The tables and chairs were very...More

Strip mall, narrow venue, cozy, right on top of the kitchen. Wait staff that's quirky and fun, engaging crew and beautiful too. Love a restaurant where you sit on a bar stool and watch your food being made in front of you and watching the...More

Great place for breakfast. Wide, varied menu and great service. Servers were prompt and very friendly. Very generous portions. We split our meal. Will have breakfast there the next time we are in Durango.

Primarily a breakfast/lunch place with large portions and delicious pancakes. The restaurant is very small and can fill quickly on weekends and holidays with substantial wait during the prime time. It can be worth it but sometimes the wait is too long and the locals...More

At the urging of some friends from Texas (?) we agreed to try Oscars in lieu of our normal, quite amazing breakfast place that we always go to when in Durango. From the outside it looks pretty cool. A replica of someone's idea of what...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
