I had one of the specials. It was an omelet with potatoes and toast. They were busy and it only took a moment to get our food. Good value in Historic Durango.

Parking can be a little difficult. No parking charge on the weekends and most holidays. Coffee refilled without being asked. Great food and great portions. You won't need to worry about lunch!

Portions are huge and delicious. I had "The Cure" breakfast and could only eat 1/3 of it. Wait staff is very friendly and the food is great. Also purchased their Green Chile Salsa to take back as gifts.

I'll echo other reviews in saying that this old-fashioned style diner serves good food in huge portions. Nothing fancy here, but just good solid food at reasonable prices.

We showed up with a group of 12 and they handled us quickly and efficiently. I had french toast, hash browns, and bacon. Food was good and cheap. I will come back anytime I'm in Durango.

I had breakfast at Durango Diner twice this week and had wayyy more food than I could eat... and pretty cheap, esp for a tourist town! They are right on Main Street. Nice stools at a counter, just like in the old days

Had the cure, light on the green sauce. In the top ten breakfasts I have ever had. Definately a hot local spot and worth any wait.
