Oscar's is a great local restaurant. It's located off the main street, in such a place that you might discount it. Don't. It has fast turnovers as many know what a find it is. We were lucky to get seated right away. Our server was sweet. The food served promptly, ample portions and tasty.

It's snowing outside so what is better than a hot bowl of soup? Just ate Oscar's delicious Italian Potato Sausage Soup. Hit the spot right on! Oscar never fails to deliver!

I do not know if Oscar's has been featured on the syndicated show "Diners, Dives and Drive Ins," but it should. It is "Excellent" as Diners go. As you walk in you will experience the typical diner atmosphere - long and narrow with a food bar and small four top tables against the opposite wall. This is one of the... More

First time going to eat at oscars being a local and this place is really good. We had always seen it as we'd pass by city market that is next to te restaurant but we thought let's give it a try. It is a bit small but regardless the food is good, service is great, and it is worth it!... More

We dined at 6am with our family of 6. We were pleasantly surprised how bubbly and friendly the staff was-even that early in the morning. They were superb! Our waitress was so kind and patient with us. Everything we ordered was delicious. Cute little cafe too. We will definitely return!

The ambiance in this diner is a good as the food. They seem to stay busy all of the time, so prepare to wait for a table. Still received excellent service and a very great breakfast. Those cinnamon rolls are amazing!

I stopped for breakfast at Oscar's Cafe and was promptly welcomed by friendly wait staff. The Cafe has a Diner feel. They serve only breakfast and lunch. Menu selections were varied and fairly priced. I ordered an omelet with their "famous" hashbrowns. It was prepared promptly and tasted great, not greasy like in some restaurants. The location is small, but... More

I really liked the atmosphere. It was old style, and had old pictures on the walls, and had a train running around the wall above. The food was very good, and there was a lot of it. I had just gotten out of surgery, and it was afternoon, but I got a wonderful omelet with sausage, mushrooms, and cheese for... More

Oscars had good food. The wait staff wont seat you until your entire party is there, so don't even try it! The breakfast was good, but adding sides got pricey quick. Its in a little strip mall just outside of the downtown area, so not as exciting as eating on Main St., but worth it for the good food.

We eat here whenever we visit Durango. Biscuits and gravy are delicious! I ordered the Tio Omelette which has their chili verde sauce on it. YUM. Very small dining room and it's super cramped in there. Avoid Saturday or Sunday morning if you can because it's really busy.
