I realize that this place is a local favorite and, I assume, always busy at breakfast as we had to wait. There are a few tables, so the wait could be longer if you are not willing to sit on a stool. Our over-riding concern with this place being so busy has to do with the obvious food safety violations related to cross contamination and overall cleanliness and sanitation of the space and equipment.

The saving grace is that the food is good, very generous portions and fun, funky service which can be amusingly erratic.

The Durango Diner has been around for years. Not much has changed since it opened years ago. There is not much room and very few tables are available. Most of the restaurant consists of a long bar that you sit at while your food is prepared. It takes you back in time. Weekends the line will be out the door. Once you get your seat and your food, you will understand the wait. The portions are huge and the food is delicious!

Diner food but tastes made from scratch. Greasy, yummy, gigantic portions, and SO worth the visit. Whatever you get, try it covered in the red chile or green chile. I could eat that stuff with a spoon out of the jar (they sell it).

It's a Diner, yea, but not even as good as Denny's and Denny's isn't good. Probably one of the worst breakfasts I have ever had.

Good old fashioned diner experience. I love to sit at the counter, read a newspaper, yes, read an actual newspaper, have a cup of coffee and watch my breakfast being made. Great value and good portions. Real stick to the ribs kinda food. If you like Green Chili or Red, buy a jar as well. Chili Relleno Omelet, AWESOME!!!
