“Local favorite”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

It was pouring rain the night we went, and it was the closest restaurant to our hotel which is why we went there. Glad we did, the fare was good & plentiful. Very authentic Mexican/New Mexican food and decor, but the guacamole was not great. In fact, it was awful. Good thing it wasn't the main meal but just a small side portion. Sopapillas came with, very yummy. VERY knowledgeable wait person who tries to sell more, so pay attention! He was great tho.

This is more a New Mexican restaurant as far as food. Still it is very, very good. Best Margarita's ever. They are very large and excellent taste

“Good New Mexican food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Went to this restaurant my first night in Durango. This place is a nice hole in the wall place with very good food and VERY hot salsa. In fact, they warn you about it on the menu! But it was a refreshing change from the kind you usually get in a Mexican restaurant! Highly recommended!

“Best New Mexican”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2014

Great food, great service, great prices. The green chili is hot, the red chili is tasty, the beans are delicious. All was fresh and came out so fast! The frozen Grand Gold Margs are awesome!

“Great Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

We had 5 couples take a trip to Durango for the Valentines weekend and decided to stop on the way home and eat at one of our favorite places. The server was excellent, she took our order for all the people at our table without even writing it down and got everyones order perfect. The Chips and Salsa were great and the food was very good. The Chile was just right...we will be stopping in to eat on our next visit for sure....we ate at another Mexican place in Durango for Valentines day because we couldn't get in here and it was not Mexican food at all and way more expensive than Gaspachos so if you are looking for Mexican food try this place...
