Delicious

The food here is fresh, flavorful and delicious. You are started with complimentary chips and salsa. The chips tasted fresh and homemade, the salsa, spicy. Reflecting a southwestern palate, the menu is extensive. I had the chili relleno, Dad ordered a burrito, Mom had a enchilada and my wife had a... read more

The margaritas were wonderful, we showed up with six people and ended up with almost done in our group, as we kept saying people we knew. The service was great, and the food was super delicious. There were even some good gluten-free options available.

The staff were super friendly and efficient. Had the fajita chicken salad. Absolutely the best salad I have ever had. All of our meals were muy tasty and visually appealing. Stop by if you are in Durango. You won't be disappointed.

We ordered a liter of classic margaritas and they were outstanding. The queso and chips were a perfect starter along with the margaritas. While my husband had a beef burrito, I enjoyed the fajitas. Although the fajitas were pricy, the meal was outstanding. The chicken was particularly well seasoned. While my husband's burrito was too spicy for me, the fajitas... More

Great Margaritas - by the carafe pitcher. Started with chile con queso with our margaritas and also had chicken fajitas and a shredded beef burrito. Margaritas were fantastic. There was some heat in the queso and the burrito. Sopapillas were a little tough, chewy - perhaps that is because they have a stuffed Sopapilla on the menu (Need to hold... More

Tucked away behind the Durango / Silverton Narrow Guage Railroad Station is an awesome Mexican Restaurant that is likely unknown by manner visitors that tend to stay on Main Street. But visitors listen up. The Chimayo wings are a true taste of New Mexico and highly recommended. There is also a full menu of quality Mexican standards but these wings... More

True New Mexican food, made by New Mexicans. Unpretentious, off main street place filled with locals--especially the bar. Best thing on the menu is the Santa Fe enchiladas with blue corn, carne adovada, and green chile. Everyone at first thinks this is a weird combination, but as soon as they try it they are addicted for good. The green chile... More

This restaurant served me the very best margarita I have ever had. I thought the food was too spicy but I find most of the Mexican food in the Southwest to be really spicy. We started with chile con queso and chips, tasty and not too spicy. I had the taco salad with shredded beef. The lettuce was wonderfully cold... More
