King's Chef is a true old-style diner with a single row of counter seats. The owner is also the cook. He has a whole bunch of sloppy dishes that are huge and messy. The chef also cooks up some green chili sauce that he uses on whatever you order. It's not fancy but it's plentiful food and great sauces..

They have the best breakfast. But my Favorite is their Marble Rye Patty Melt and cheese fries. It is to die for. Their staff are so unique and fun and freindly. Its a must go and eat!!!!!!!

This is by far a must see in the springs. The breakfast burrito is boss and the food is always served quickly and with a great attitude. Love love love. Take my guests here every time.

Definitely in my top 5 for breakfast spots. The green chili is so good I have it shipped to our Florida home. I'm a sucker for green chili smothered burritos and Kings Chef has the best.

This funky place is full of great local chow. From the good local coffee to the Pueblo chilis, everything here satisfies. I had a 1/4 portion of potatoes and eggs covered with green chili---amazing!

This place has won local awards for best breakfast - and they deserve it. The burritos, eggs and sandwiches are all great. We were staying at The Broadmoor and came to Kings Chef for breakfast one morning. There is NOTHING at The Broadmoor half as good for 5 times the price. We ate breakfast there one morning, and enjoyed it... More

This place is awesome. I've been for breakfast three times now and had something different from the menu each time. The staff is super friendly, the food is really good and isn't that expensive. The interior is a little diner-esque and eclectic. Bring your appetite and cash. Have "The Grump".

We really enjoy both locations of King Chef in Colorado Springs. Do be careful: portions can be intimidating. Be prepared to ask for a travel box. It's not just the portions, though. Both breakfast and lunch menus are interesting and worth several visits to check them all out.

Best huevos in town. This is definitely a great breakfast place. Quick service, very large servings (we always get the half orders) and food cooked well. The huevos are different than often found in Colorado. The grilled tortillas are a nice touch.

Came here for brunch one day with my husband. I ordered French toast and a Hamburger and he ordered some weird mixture of potatoes and chili and eggs. The food was just average. The service was really good. The prices weren't too high. Overall, an okay experience.
