There are a number of places in Durango that know most of their business is coming from tourists.. so they treat you like a one time deal. Gazpacho is not one of these businesses, and this is why you see so many locals here. Even if you are a tourist, they treat you like a regular.
My husband and I frequent this place for the great food, and easy going atmosphere after a long week. Not to mention the spectacular margaritas. This is a great place! The sopapillas and honey butter are amazing.
I've never had a bad meal here, and a little tip? Don't worry about a big expensive margarita.. Get their house margarita. It's the best margarita in this town. Bar none.
