Local dinner with good food and good service. This place has some choices that go beyond your typical dinner selections. Make sure to have the Green Chili. It is amazing.

We stopped in here while waiting for family. What a great find. The BAMJO was awesome, eggs, cheese, avocado, hashbrowns, biscuits. Too much food but every bite was great. Diner food at it's best with great service.

Having visited Cafe 13 the morning previous, we sought out breakfast with a little more gut. Golden Diner is definitely that. Just some good ol' fashioned diner food. They sling the mess all day long and it shows. It's greasy (in the spoon sorta way), cheap and you'll find lunch or breakfast all day. Need more proof? They sell their... More

Having been on the road for a while without a bite to eat we found this little gem on a side street in Golden. They were filled to capacity the whole time we were there with locals and travelers so we knew we were on to something good. A real US diner with a big enough menu for families to... More

I would rate this as good .... Not great. Only 1 server on the day we visited... Food was brought out quickly after we ordered. 2nd server showed up after we finished eating.... Overall a good standard breakfast... Plenty of food.. Had the omelette with the avocado.. Different but good! I would come back to this place!

Not fast food, but good food prepared fast. Nice variety of American foods. Quite popular. Easy walking distance from main shopping area on Washington.

Could be so incredible. It's not. Wish it was farm to table, fresh, less greasy, fresh tasting. It's heavy, greasy, generic. Coffee is gross. Rather overpriced for a greasy diner. A little change would go a long way. It does the job if you want a breakfast. If you want a great breakfast, the other local coffee shops offer tastier... More

We ate there twice, the first day we were early, the service was strong and the food was hot. The 2nd day when we went back was a little later and whether it was because they were busy I don't know but the service was slow and the food was just average. On the other hand it's just a diner... More
