Stopped by for a late evening dinner - restaurant was extremely hot and crowded but we stayed and had a good meal. Both the red and green chile was delicious. Had some incredible queso. Would return again when in the area.

Ever heard of fresh? I used to eat here more but then they upped their prices and decreased the food quality. Service is acceptable. If your Darby the kitchen expect a rough night. Upstairs is nice, margs are good.

We enjoyed a huge fajita for two and took home half of it plus many other accompaniments. The menu is extensive and the environment accommodating.

This is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Durango. It reminds us restaurants in Santa Fe and Taos because they serve sopapillas and your choice of green or red chili and they also have blue tortillas. Great Margaritas like we used to have in Texas. However,...More

Just had a light lunch at Gazpacho - I did not want to eat that much (and their portions are large!!) - so I ordered the "kids taco plate". That was just great, a very good shredded beef taco with rice and beans - p.s....More
