If kitschy decor was a barometer for good food, you’d know you’re in for a heck of a meal as soon as you walk into Oscar’s. Situated in a shopping plaza away from Durango’s Main Avenue, it has everything you’d expect from a '50s-style diner, from the glittery red seats and checkerboard tile floor to the neon signage and history of Durango Snowdown posters across the walls. 

Sidle up to the counter where you’ll be staring directly into the refrigerated case of their housemade pies and try not to place an order for dessert first. You can’t go wrong with anything on the breakfast menu, but you’d be wise to choose an option that includes their pork chili verde, such as the Verde Breakfast. For lunch, the Uncle Reuben with housemade thousand island dressing is a slam dunk. And don’t forget to grab a slice of pie or one of their famous giant cinnamon rolls before you go.
