Doug's Day Diner is a great place for brunch or lunch. The food is fresh. The homemade chips are second to none. Delicious! Weekends there can be a wait but it is well worth it..

We met friends here for lunch. Everyone seemed happy with their food. . . some had breakfast and I had a lunch burrito. Not cheap but ok for the amount of food.

Like all the other reviews mention "lots of food". They make their own hash browns, sausage, green and red chili. Doug's is New Mexican so try the red chili. The ambience could be better, but hey the food is worth it.
