We a party of 4, shared dinner here one evening. It is a convenient location. Because it is close to the train station I called to make a reservation and was abruptly told no only for parties of 10 or greater. The menu had great variety - everything was very spicy - but they do warn you of that. Only... More

Me and my wife went here on our vacation and were shocked how bad the food is and horribly overpriced. I have eaten at hundreds of Mexican restraints since I travel a lot with my job, and this is by far the worse one I've been to. To start off the chips were drowning in salt and the salsa was...

This is good mexican food, a bit more of New Mexican style, with Carne Adovado, and excellent guacamole. I like their tortilla soup.

Gazpacho's advertises New Mexican style cooking using New Mexico chili, both a plus for my wife and me. However, we did not find the quality of food, portions and drinks worth the $56 for 1 appetizer, 2 entrees and a liter of Margaritas. We did not care for the red chili sauce on my wife's enchiladas and the side of... More

We shared the vegetarian combo plate and it was just the right amount of food. Everything was delicious. The waiter brought us small cups of red chile, green chile, and salsa with our dinner. There was also local hot sauce on the table. The sopapillas with local honey made for the perfect ending.

We ate at the Gazpacho Restaurant at the recommendation of hosts we were staying with in Durango. The food was average and the meal came with delicious sopapillas. It was a fun atmosphere but the meal was disrupted by flies buzzing around our food. I think you can find better Mexican food in Durango.
