We stopped here on the way out to Arizona. The food was good but highly overpriced for what we got. I had tamales and my wife a burrito. We can get better at home in WI but at about half the price. Service was good and the restaurant is nice.

We ate here for my husband's birthday. I got the chili rellano which was breaded and fried but the breading was very very mushy, not at all crispy like the menu said. My husband got the stuffed sopapilla which was good but he hated the rice. Neither of us cared for the refried beans...just bland with no seasoning. Salsa was... More

Everything about this restaurant was great: from the food, to the drinks, and the staff, especially Ashley Howell. She took care of my party all night. I will definitely visit this restaurant again the next time I'm in Durango.

Sean the waiter was excellent. Great service and stuff memorized like nobody's buisness! Food was served superfast and impressioned that it was just a premade comercial box brand that restaurants buy in general. But nevertheless, still not bad at all.

We've been to Durango numerous times but this was our first trip to Gazpacho's. We were very impressed with the shredded beef, green chili, Santa Fe blue corn enchiladas. The sopapillas and sunrise margaritas were also great. To top it off Hannah provided excellent service and addressed all of our needs without us having to ask for a single thing!... More

Our server was Sean and has been noted in other reviews he is just superior. Courteous, knowledgeable and fast. I suspect that their food is probably very good but I ordered a taco plate (so did my wife). I ordered ground beef and she had shredded beef and chicken. The shells on the ground beef tacos, which looked homemade, were... More

Great service and atmosphere. Sean has been a server here for years and is excellent. Food is really spicy (even the salsa) and goes great with their sunrise margaritas.

Thank scimplicity
