“Good Cajun fare in an out-of-the-way location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

I'm always on the lookout for fresh, tasty oysters on the half shell. They are not easy to find in the inland Southwest U.S. Chuck Norton's Roadhouse serves them up in Durango three evenings a week (Wednesday-Friday), along with a diverse menu of other delicious treats. Happy hour often includes raw oysters at a very reasonable price. The place is a little hard to find but worth the effort.

“Cajun surprise in Durango”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

While visiting Durango, we went to dinner at the Highway 3 Roadhouse. What a great place. It was out of the way and only open Wednesday through Friday It is a local bar and was busy. The food is Cajun and was surprise to find in Durango. The oysters were very fresh and had a wonderful sweet taste. My husband ordered the fried catfish and he said it was great. My daughter and I ordered the shrimp ettouffe. It was very good. We had ordered drinks before dinner. They serve Hurricanes just like New Orleans. Their Bloodymarys were spicy and delicious. It was a beautiful evening and we chose to sit outdoors. Our server was prompt and friendly. If you are in Durgano and looking for something different, I highly recommend the Highway 3 Roadhouse.
