We visited there several times while in town. The food was wonderful and we had excellent service for dinner for 6. The bartenders are friendly and attentive. A great place to get a good feel for the friendly people of Durango!

This review is biased by the fact that this restaurant occupies the same location of one of my favorite Durango restaurants, Randy's. That being said, the new establishment has some significant strengths of its own. They have removed a wall, greatly expanding the bar seating....More
