Went for Sunday brunch. The food was fabulous! Had an omelette and my daughter ordered the breakfast burrito that was huge! I loved my omelette. They didn't get my order right. I received hash browns when I asked for the American fries. Oh well. They...More

We love going to Kennebec. It is the closest really nice restaurant to our home in Dolores. There are lots of excellent establishments closer to home, but none are really fine dining. Kennebec is good for special occasions, or just if you want a really...More

This is one of our favorite restaurants. Period. From Farmington, NM, the restaurant is located about 20 miles west of Durango, CO, literally, out in the country. Might seem unlikely, but if you have not been there, you gotta go. Barbara (and Miguel), the owner,...More
