Norton’s has catered multiple parties for me - including 3 parties this summer - every event has been a success. I have used them for large cocktail parties, outdoor dinners, and intimate dinner parties. Norton’s food is fabulous, and Chuck is willing to customize beyond...More

As Southerners, we are always excited to find good cajun food - especially oysters on the half shell which aren't outrageously expensive! This was excellent food, good service and the value of the catfish special and happy hour oysters made our trip!

This place is really good! A taste of Louisiana in Colorado! Shrimp Étouffée and Blackened and Fried Mississippi Catfish. The atmosphere is casual and inviting, and we felt at home right away. The menu is filled with southern and New Orleans style dishes including po...More

Thank you very much for taking the time for a review. We're really glad you enjoyed your visit and our food. We hear you on the étouffée. That's one we can never win, you know what I mean :-) Thanks again!

We were invited by friends to join them at Highway 3 Roadhouse, one of their favorite spots. This was our first time there despite being longtime Durango residents. It's tucked away behind some other buildings on Rte 3 slightly outside of downtown Durango and, we...More

Thank you very much for your review. We like to be "secret," but it seems the secret has gotten out. We actually like that a little better :-) Anyway, glad your friends turned you onto Durango's "secret" New Orleans style restaurant. We love getting found!

We love great restaurants, great service and an owner that still gets out and meets his patrons! These combinations simply don’t exist very often anymore and we’d like to keep this place a secret! We love coming to Durango and Hwy 3 Roadhouse just gave...More

I was really looking forward to this place as it sounded like a cool place with great food. The atmosphere was decent enough, but the food was disappointing. We started with some fried okra, since my wife loves it. The Okra really tasted like it...More

It is so difficult for us with true southern heritage to find great cajun fixins in the mountain mid-west. So, when we do, we feel truly blessed. This establishment's menu offered so many missed meal choices it was a dilemma in making a decision to...More

I have never had a bad meal here and the weekly specials are wonderful. And the oysters and catfish, pretty much unheard of in Durango, are always fresh. Great atmosphere and authentic New Orleans style food.

Wow! Thank you for the great review, Cindy. We get it fresh every week.

Please don't go here. It's too wonderful and we want to keep it to ourselves. This charming roadhouse is tucked away so you'll pass it if you aren't looking for it. Just adds to the overall surprise of a great restaurant with very good food....More

Oh, my gosh. Read your headline and almost panicked. That quickly turned into a belly laugh. Thank you for the review, Godu. It is much appreciated.

We took a friend here for a birthday celebration. It was crowded inside so we sat outside. Lots of cajun menu choices and fresh oysters.
