It was only steps from the hotel and it proved to be an oasis for 4 weary travelers. The train had just gotten back and the place was packed. The staff accommodated us with a small table in the bar versus a 45 minute wait. Very crowded conditions with some service logistics problems, but we were in and the New... More

Went there after reading reviews. Went on a Saturday night around 5p. Service was ok, they were busy. Salsa is hot, as they advertise. The food is good.

Service was good. We were seated promptly. The chips were so so. The salsa had Mexican oregano but only tomatoes juice, no chunks. The Chalupas were bowl shaped corn tortillas with a few pieces of meat and lots of lettuce, beans, and sour cream. I couldn't taste the Carne Adovada without picking it out. Not the best and not the... More

My husband and I lived in New Mexico for their years and got hooked on New Mexico green chili...we found our much needed fix at Gazpachos. It was so good we ate here twice in our three night stay in Durango.

My daughter and I were staying in Durango while visiting Mesa Verde. Brooke, at the Quality Inn recommended this restaurant if we wanted good Mexican food, so we tried it out. Located at the far end of town, we found this neat little restaurant tucked into the downtown area off of the main drag. We both had the shredded beef... More

FANTASTIC salsa! Well worth the extra $3 because refills were free. Ordered the Sante Fe Enchiladas with Carne Adovada, pasole and pinto beans. I was not disappointed! Finding stacked enchiladas can be difficult and sometimes the sauce is disappointing. NOT in this case! The one thing I would do differently would be to order both the red and green sauce!... More
