This was the best breakfast place I have ever been too. The pancakes were huge and amazing tasting. The chili verde was to die for. Best place in Town!

After a week backpacking, we look forward to a great breakfast at Oscar's. It's a tradition. Try the sausage, it's fresh and flavourful

Best French toast I've EVER had! Atmosphere is fun! Service was amazing! They were packed, but the wait was only 15 min. Even with being so busy, the service was excellent! Apple pie is to die for! And the cinnamon rolls are out of this...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
