I found the pricing to be OK and the food to be ok. The margarita were very good so we kept drinking and drinking. the friendly staff helped in our experience. The down side was the cleanliness. Every where I looked needed attention to repair or cleaning.

Came here for a Saturday lunch with family. The service was pretty good & the salsa was excellent. However, the entrees left something to be desired. The amounts were huge, served on platter-sized plates. (It would have been nice if they offered some a la carte options.). I ordered the tacos de pastor, which were not the real deal (no... More

Food is good and portions are huge but the main attraction here are the margaritas. They are hand squeezed and come in giant fish bowls. Best margaritas in Durango and best we've ever had and we're from Texas and drink lots of margaritas! Don't miss out!

We were greeted and seated with a warm welcome. Menus and drink orders were prompt. Staff was very polite and respectful. I had enchiladas rancheras- pork enchiladas with green chile- they are to die for!! All meals were substantial and looked amazing. Couldn't believe how fast the food arrived.

The food was good. Not "to-die-for" food, but good basic Mexican food. The location is excellent, right on Main, although parking is always a bit of a pain. The menu is really big, so there may be some things that are better than others. We just went with the combos. The prices were reasonable and service was good. In my... More

I thought their steak fajitas were really good and the marguerita was plenty potent. But the highlight of the night was the desert plate. It was enough food for the three of us!

Ordered the create your own combo so we could mix and match. Wish I had ordered a margarita as well! They looked devine. Not what I consider true mexican food but toned down for the touristy taste. Tasty none the less.

The food was good and reasonably priced - considering that the portions seemed fairly large. It can be a little noisy because there is no carpet or anything else to help the acoustics. We would eat here again.

Great Mexican Food. We ate lunch there and everything we ordered was delicious. The homemade salsa was so good, I asked if they would give me the recipe... And they did! Service was so friendly and timely. Also, they make GREAT margarita.
