“Wow Factor”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

This is a neat little diner. It's clean and efficient, friendly, and the food's pretty good too.
Their specialty is their green chili and it's quite good, but a little warm for some folks, so be advised.
The portions are really large; so don't be afraid that you'll starve if you only ask for a 1/2 order. It's more than adequate for the normal appetite. And the food is fresh. I was startled to see a cook at the grill actually grating potatoes onto the grill.
The waitstaff was there with coffee refills and to check on progress just often enough.

Stopped in for family brunch. Plenty of great food. Bring appetite and try to finish the full portion.

“Great breakfast, huge portions.”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

Cash only, but they have an ATM. We all liked out meals, coffee was good, I would go back if I lived in Colorado Springs. Go with the 1/2 or mini portions unless you are REALLY hungry.

“Not a grease spoon”
Reviewed 15 March 2013

This place is fantastic! If you are in town for only a couple days this is the only restaurant you need. Breakfast is wonderful, but sit near the bar to watch the cooks, the show is great. Just had lunch for the first time here this weekend, bread fresh, lettuce crisp, turkey BBQ was great. The had vegetarian meals that the wife loved with out sacrificing taste. We will go back again and again. Food was well worth the price. You get a sticker if you clean your plate!
It is downtown right across from the park. Make sure you go, because you will love this place.
