I had expected this to beat out my favorite Durango spot, but it didn't. It is a cute place and I liked sitting at the counter. But, we got menus but were not told about the specials. I saw the board when I went to the restroom. I had one blueberry pancake and it was cooked almost to black. The... More

Our guide book described this as a "local greasy spoon." It is FAR from that. Inside is clean and well maintained. Have a seat at the counter and listen to the staff chat with locals and visitors alike. Home town atmosphere serving well prepared and tasty items. We had the 3 slices of French Toast and a Breakfast sandwich with... More

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.

Breakfast was okay. Coffee tasted like they ran water three times through the same grounds. If coffee is an important part of your breakfast I recommend you go elsewhere.

Bring your appetite folks! The Durango diner is quaint and the delights are monstrous. Hungover?! This is your spot. Really hungry and want to chow down on breakfast? Also your spot. Try the verde sauce on your eggs!

Out for a morning walk, figured I would get a cup of coffee while the family slept in. Walked by their chalkboard, glanced at the specials - stuck my head in and I was hooked!!! Sitting at the counter by the grill, listening to the chatter and taking in the smells of my breakfast being cooked - drinking my cup... More

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 Manhattan. Also, the portions are enormous. I swear the green chile cheeseburger I had was... More

This is a very small place and needs some upkeep but don't let that stop you because you get really good food and service.
