Great food & service

Quick service, good food! The server was very friendly and knowledgable and very attentive. The food was prepared quickly and they gave free fresh sopapillas for dessert.

I had lunch with a friend at Gazpacho's today and I think it may well be my new favorite place. It's always been up there, but boy, did it satisfy a craving I had for a stuffed sopapilla. I chose the carne adovada version with rice and beans and the green chili was simply perfect. $4 margarita's and guacamole topped... More

The best mexican style restaurant in Durango. Should be ranked as the best restaurant in town, or in the top few. Everything is good. I particularly like the salsa, the chicken wings, the stuffed pork sopalpilla and great margaritas. Our waiter Sean, treated us like friends. A great experience.

If you are in Durango Co., you must stop in at Gazpachos Restaurant. Not only does it have great New Mexican food, it has Sean O'Neal who is by far the friendliest person you would ever hope to meet. He carries an air of sophistication and carrying but he does it with an enormous side of sense of humor. We... More

Our hostess was Callie. She went above and beyond and was so friendly and patient when we had a special request. What a smile. I'd go back just because of her. Great burger too.

We stop here for lunch several times a year when we're in Durango. They would get a 5 except that sometimes the green chili is extremely hot - great flavor, occasionally just too hot for us gringos. This week we had Brennan for a waiter and he gave us exceptional attention. This was one of those weeks when my wife... More

Dear Mancos, Thank you for bringing the too hot salsa to our attention. This is easy to loose sight of when everyone in the kitchen has asbestos-like tongues due to a long time love of hot n' spicy! Glad that the sour cream did the trick. Please send us your email so we can give you some coupons. You can... More

Gazpacho is well known in Durango for their excellent red and green chile...not for the faint of heart. Their chile has a kick! They have fantastic tacos, chile rellenos & enchiladas, among many other options to choose from and I can't forget to mention their great margaritas. My husband & I make Gazpacho a weekly meeting place with our friends... More

Sean O'Neil our waiter treated us fabulously! My favorite night to go to Gazpacho's is Tuesday night for tender beef taco's and Tecate's on special. Two taco's fill me up along with chips and spicy salsa. Thanks for a fun evening!

Great authentic Mexican food with a great menu for all ages! You'll love there chilies and salsas, they can't be beat. We are local to Durango and it is one of our family favorites. Callie M is our favorite waitress. She's always smiling and serves us with pride! Be sure to ask for her when you visit. Again, GREAT food.
