Lots of flavor and spice here. It feels like a typical Tex-Mex restaurant, but the prices are a couple of dollars more than you might expect to pay at similar Tex-Mex restaurants. Perhaps this is because this is in fact a New Mexican food restaurant? (Eg soda $3, $8 queso, $6.50 kids meal, $13.50 fajita salad). However the food is very tasty, and the $8.50 lunch special is a very good value considering the food quality. Lots of cumin and chiles are used here. The cumin vinaigrette salad dressing was very tasty and was a combination of flavors that I had never tried before. An additional nice plus is that in addition to chips and salsa, sopapillas are also included with each meal.

They're also known for their margaritas, but we didn't try them.

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.

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!

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!
