I ate lunch there and found the food to be yummy! While it was quickly prepared, it tasted like freshly prepared Mexican food!

This is always a favorite place for my family. It is a funky little taqueria located across from the Durango train station. All food is freshly made to order. They have a list of over 10 home made salsas from mild to flaming hot! We have never ordered anything that we didn't like. Just a fun little place to fill... More

Nini's is a casual dining spot right in the heart of historic downtown. You order at the counter and can take your food to the pleasant back patio area, eat at the few tables inside, or enjoy people watching out front. They make your taco to order while you wait and the ingredients are fresh and very tasty. One of... More

This is fast casual, independent style. Order at the counter and dine in or take it to go. Either way, choose from nine different salsa and layer them on your choice of tacos, burritos and more.

Cute hole in the wall in the heart of Durango close to train station. The seating is minimal but the food makes up for it. The variety of salsas are delicious. I loved the mango salsa on the vegetarian soft tacos and the black bean and corn salsa on the shredded chicken. So many combinations. Some great local brews too.... More

Had the fish tacos with a mango salsa - delicious! My friends had the chicken tacos - equally delicious! Nice selection of ala carte items as well as tacos and sides. Casual dining located on Main Street. This was our favorite night out - a must try if you are in Durango!

A lunch spot we hit 3 or 4 times a months, the Chicken Nachos and the Southwest Seafood Chowder (seasonal) are both outstanding...the Margs are pretty good, too!

Ate lunch there and they were fast and had lots of tasty choices. The margarita was smooth. I had the burrito and a choice of three sauces and three of each of the choices, so 9 sauces to choose from.
