While driving through Colorado Springs, I knew there was one diner I wanted to go too: The King Chef Diner. It had been on the Food Network before!
It’s a small, purple, castle located on the main road. If you aren’t familiar with it, you’ll wonder what you are driving by. That being said, it’s one of the best atmospheres out there!
The inside sits 13, and everyone must sit at the bar. You can watch the chef in the back or talk to the waitress. Everyone speaks to everyone, and you immediately meet new friends. It’s clear that it’s a local favorite.
The coffee was brewed hot and fresh, with plenty of whipped cream. I have no complaints.
For the entire diner, there is one waitress and one cook. Which makes sense because it’s so small! Our waitress was extremely friendly, knew almost everyone, and our food came out quickly.
The King Chef diner is open for breakfast and lunch (not dinner), and you can order anything at anytime. The King Chef diner has unique options such as a burrito that appeared on the Food Network. Since the burrito was on the Food Network, I knew immediately what I needed to order. If you are looking for something healthy, you probably won’t find it there.
The portions are huge. The burrito had a flour tortilla stuffed with: two scrambled eggs, sausage, grilled onions, hash browns & shredded cheese. I choose to top mine with their signature green chili! It was spicy (which I like!). It was one of the best burritos I have ever had. I had watched the Food Network episode so I knew to come hungry. My husband and I had also run earlier and I even I struggled to finish the burrito.
For the coffee and burrito, the cost was $13. Most people would get two meals out ofit.
I enjoyed the King Chef Diner, and I would go back anytime I’m in Colorado Springs. It’s definitely a unique experience!
Other Diners I went on the Trip:
