Authentic New Mexican cuisine. Green and red chile (not chili) sauces that are outstanding. Among our favorites are the carne adovada, the stuffed sopapillas, the flat enchiladas (get them Christmas to try both sauces), and the chile rellenos (to die for). And for all you people putting this place down…. It's not Tex-Mex!!! And you, my friend, will be glad... More

We came here for dinner after my husband and teenage son had a hard day of skiing. Ordered the queso dip and on my hungry sons suggestion, the fried avocados to start. They were both so good......chips were refilled as needed. Entrees were the enchiladas and chili rellenos. My rellenos were just ok, but the boys enchiladas were outstanding. Service... More

We met local friends here for lunch on the last day of our Durango trip, upon their recommendation. We will go back, the service was quick and friendly and everyone's lunch was great. Good size portions, and of course yummy chips and salsa!

Had a good dinner with friends. Tried the avocado fries - excellent way to enjoy avocados! The dinner was most tasty - the Santa Fe blue corn enchiladas were the best. Excellent service too!
