I have eaten here about ten times. I like New Mexican style food and this restaurant has been good. I ate here two nights ago, and found the food average,the margaritas sweet, and the bill hurtful.

We ordered fahitas! Food was good & plentiful. Service was so so. The place was very noisy and once we received our food the waitress didn't know we were there until we flagged her down!

We have always loved Gazpacho every time we visit Durango. This time, for lunch, the food was terrible in so many ways. The rice and beans were completely tasteless, no seasoning whatsoever.....the salsa and chips should certainly come free with the meal as they used...More

Order anything on the menu and you can't go wrong. Service was excellent. Wait time was not Bad for a Monday evening. Food is usually better during non rush hours at restaurants. The cooks can take their time. Friday to Sunday expect waiting.

We patronize Gazpacho's nearly every time we visit Durango and have never been disappointed. Other Mexican restaurants in the area are good but not as good as this 'locals' favorite. Serving traditional foods such as tacos, enchiladas, rice, beans, with a bit of an American...More

Not traditional New Mexican fare, but the dishes are hybrid versions of the standard favorites. I liked the special twists thrown in to take the mix of flavors to a new level. The soppapillas were light and fluffy and delicious for dessert. The service was...More
