I have had the best Very Dirty Titos Vodka Martini here. The bartendress new exactly how to make it and made them consistently. Quiet and great place to hangout. I recommend if you are looking for a Martini!

Visited Joel's twice while in Durango. All the cocktails we had were well made and had generous measures. Very friendly server who gave genuinely useful tips on local eating places. Excellent bar.
