Kings chef diner

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- A popular restaurant in Colorado Springs says it will reopen Thursday after announcing in April that it was shutting down for good due to the pandemic.

In a Facebook post, King's Chef Diner says it will provide to-go orders and outdoor dining starting Thursday at 8 a.m.

The iconic purple castle restaurant has become a favorite of locals since it opened its doors in 1956. It's now located at 110 East Costilla Street downtown.

Customers can be served Wednesday through Sunday from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m., but the management says it is hoping to extend the hours.

Back in April, the diner announced it would be shutting down after the State of Colorado imposed restrictions to curb the spread of coronavirus.

    1. Well, when you have intellectual dysentery you can expect verbal diarrhea at 3:56, like Iwantblkprivledge. I hope you and your obvious social disorder prevent you from ever patronizing King’s Chef, just like it prevents you from filtering your inane attempts at humor. Is there no one in your life who will advise you that your type of behavior is abberant and wrong? Because if this is how you behave on a public forum your life in the real world a self-inflicted must be hell. HEre’s a hint…whatever you think is funny or clever…it’s not…it’s your particular form of mental illness. Seek help.

      With the Covid-19 restrictions harming small local businesses, the re-opening of King’s Chef is great news, for small businesses, for the neighborhood, and especially to us that love their food, and the uniqueness they bring to Colorado Springs.
