Great decor and food was good. The service was at the least confusing. Wife and I waited in line. When the hostess, or server? came up to us my wife gave her order and before I could say anything, she left. Employees were scurrying around very hurriedly passing me by. I finally stopped one of them and said that someone... More

Took the family to Nini's on our last day in Durango, located on Main Street not very far from the train depot. The folks working there were friendly and walked us through their menu. Definitely ask, because their portions are generous! We ordered the small nachos and a regular quesadilla. Each item came with a choice of one of their... More

This is a little café style restaurant right on Main Street Durango, across from the train station. The food is regular Mexican fare, nothing exceptional, but it is good enough if hungry and do not want to spend too much money.

Not bad, but I've had better. It's fast in a busy part of town if you're not wanting to wait elsewhere. Fast food, but leaves you feeling less guilty than other fast food alternatives in the area...

Friendly quick fresh mexican. Lunch was quick, we ate on the street although plenty of room inside. They offer 9 types of sauces, mild to spicy and the pico de galo was amazing! Beef nachos were wonderful.

My wife and I had a burrito and some tacos with barbacoa and a quesadilla with carnitas. It was all pretty yummy. We also enjoyed the mango margaritas. This isn't what I'd call authentic Mexican, but rather somebody's "funky" take on it. They prepare a lot of their own fresh salsas. The mango lime we had was okay...I'd like to... More

We spent five days in Durango and this was the big disappointment of the trip. The food was ho-hum. Not terrible...not great. The worst part was the service. Two employees were behind the counter talking loudly enough for us to hear their conversation regarding how much time the still had left on their shift. They are entitled to feel bored... More

Should be ranked higher than it is. Everything is fresh and lots of it! Big day of hiking, running or biking, stop here.

After a long day of traveling we asked at our hotel where to eat something that was good and fast. I will say the food was great and the service was fast. A gem that is worth stopping and eating at
