Food was ok. Not for me, but I’m not big on super greasy food. Kids enjoyed it though. They played good music and it was a friendly atmosphere. It wasn’t some place I’d go back to though.

Portions are huge. I ordered a regular breakfast burrito and my husband ordered a half order of the grump. It took up the entire plate. Chili sauce is amazing! The only thing I would change is the hash browns be crispier but not a deal...More

No need for a long-enough lever and fulcrum, the breakfast burrito at King’s Chef Diner can move, no ROCK, your world. The staff is friendly, the coffee a tasty roast, and the portions ample (this is the “mini” size!). If your visiting Colorado Springs, stop...More

We have been dinning at this restaurant since it was in an old train car, and now has a location downtown. The breakfast burritos are delicious, but very large! It is a casual place and does require cash only. Overall the food is great and...More

I agree with ordering it from their website. Our waitress told us locally you can find it at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods, but our California stores don't carry them. We also loved the green chili sauce!
