Great staff

Had homemade taquitos and they were great. The chips are really good but be warned the salsa has a bite to it. And you have to pay for chips and salsa they are not free. Margarita definitely had tequila in it. Good place to eat

Gazpachos is the best mexican/southwestern restaurant in the area.The food is tremendous,especially the Saturday Tequila chicken taco.To compliment the great cuisine,one gets the pleasure of the friendliest and most attentive staff in town.My hat is off to Chelsea behind the bar,who offers the best service in town.A must go if you are in Durango.gj

We call him "Chardonnay" - but he's the best waiter at the restaurant. We return at least monthly for the past 5 years(maybe more) on Thursday's for the Shrimp Tacos to request his seating area. Fun times & excellent service are always guaranteed!

Albeit I may be somewhat partial to a restaurant I've visited since my poor college student river guide days. This place is a true taste of Durango; people, atmosphere, quality of flood and ingredients as of course most pivotal, service. I recommend asking for Sean as he will always "remove the evidence" from having a good evening of affordable beers... More

We enjoyed the special tonight which was the Shrimp Empanadas with Cilantro Cream dipping sauce and the classic Rellenos. Both were prepared perfectly with good size portions. Wash these down with an Escalade Margartia made by Devin Feeney and you'll be impressed! Thank you Devin for the great service, margs and food!
