My wife who is a Durango native and I met some other Durango natives at this restaurant recently for a dinner where we could 'catch up'. We were accompanied by the 93 year old mother of our friend. We were treated with respect and the elder member of our party was not ignored or patronized by the staff. We had... More

If you like New Mexican food then you will probably like this place, but I am one who doesn't like my enchilada sauce to be sweet....I want SPICY! The salsa was ok and the chips were nice and warm when they arrived which I liked very much. It has a cute, warm ambiance and very authentic looking. The drinks were... More

I'm from Santa Fe, NM where I'm lucky to have many options for Mexican and New Mexican food. New Mexican's that I've talked to generally have a less than favorable idea of what "Colorado Mexican food" is all about. Well, this place was awesome! Really enjoyed the chili relleno which can be hard to find done right (and I've had... More

Three of us had lunch here the day before Thanksgiving and we all thought the food was very good. I had a chili relleno, my wife had the stuffed sopapilla, my son had enchiladas. Chile relleno was one of the best i've ever had.

Restaurant was nearly empty - yet the hostess wanted to seat us downstairs and right next to the kitchen. When no chips and salsa arrived - we finally found one of our three waitresses and requested them . . . she snarled and said "oh - you want chips and salsa" walked away and slammed them down on the table....

One of the best Mexican restaurants I have ever experienced. If you like hot spicy with great flavors versus bland normal Mexican food then this is the place to go. Definitely a LOCAL favorite.

Gazpachos has always been a go-to place for lunch, food is very good, but things are getting a little pricey. But even that's OK, my main complaint is with the quality of the service. There are a couple of excellent wait people there but lately we have been getting waited on by truly clueless servers, for example: coming over to... More

We were not impressed with food and prices. $13 for a ground beef burrito. We asked for Sour cream and that cost extra. Chips and salsa cost extra not complimentary. $9 extra if you order queso or quacomole. Margaritas are served in small glasses. Green Chili was no good, runny with no pork. Staff was friendly.
