Oscar’s, which opens at 6 AM and closes at 2PM, has been a Durango institution for over 35 years. Located out near City Market, this local’s
favorite is small and reminiscent of a much older diner along with a counter and stools.
For entertainment you can watch the model train as it moves around the perimeter. Breakfast is traditional or Southwestern. The French Toast is fantastic. You can ask for the recipe, but it’s a closely guarded family secret. Oscar’s Ole’ omelet has chipped green chilies, cheese and sour cream. Love it. Then there’s the Breakfast Burrito. If you can finish it you probably won’t bother with lunch.
