This cash only establishment has both fast and friendly service and delicious food. One of the best green chili's to be found in Colorado Springs, made from local ingredients. Bring your appetite!!!!

I went to King's Chef about 3:00 on a Thursday afternoon. They close "4:00-ish". I was greeted warmly, sat promptly and asked if I'd been before. When I said I had not, the server explained it was a cash only diner, pointed out an on-site...More

Hands down, best breakfast that we've had in Colorado Springs. Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious. We aren't generally huge green chile fans (non-native) but theirs is very good. It's always packed and parking can be a struggle downtown, but it's worth the time and...More

I've visited King's Chef a few times, and each time has been amazing. The food is always reliable (something that is hard to find in this town!), and I always receive great service. It is odd to have a breakfast/brunch place without a liquor license...More

They pile food in ways I never imagined - and then douse it in either white gravy or their green chili. I've heard of Colorado green chili, but never sampled it before. It's my new obsession. Whatever you're ordering, get the 1/4 unless you have...More

We were seated immediately. The staff were super friendly, just good folks working there all around. Atmosphere was very comfortable. Many single folks walked in to eat, there were also a couple of families with small children. The walls and area over bar were covered...More

I was not blown away by King's Chef Diner. The portions are huge but you pay for them. There were 7 of us for lunch and it was over 95.00. The food was not bad but it was not memorable either. Very average.

We stopped here last May LOVED it and made sure when we planned this year's trip that we'd stop here. We sat at the bar. Staff gave us great tips for the Great Sand Dunes. The food was fantastic and plentiful. Buy salsa to bring...More

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
