  • My husband likes to try local beers, and the server recommended a Colorado Kolsch Ale brewed literally down the street at their sister restaurant/brewery. Carl was very happy with it! We started with a Scotch egg, which was delicious. Main courses included a burger & salad for hubby (totally locally sourced ingredients) and a Cuban sandwich with house fries for me. Both entrees were excellent and more than we could eat, prices are very reasonable, and service was spot-on. In a word: WINNER!!

  • My wanderings have historically led me astray in one form or another, but my random Tuesday night in Durango was a win. Looking for a well stocked and educated bar is a constant and El Moro delivered! Their spirits collection shows a knowledgable kindred spirit hard at work, and Sarah, the wonderful keeper of the wines generously took me thru a tasting of the establishments selection. It was a lot of fun and totally unexpected!

  • OKAY! This place was awesome. Thomas was our server for lunch and he was extremely friendly and knowledgable on all the drinks and food. We ordered a meat and cheese plate and it was probably one of the best I've had. Then we had the farro salad which was so fresh. For dessert we ended with their homemade brittle, chocolate and caramel. Holy smokes. It was seriously amazing. The atmosphere is great. I also love that you can buy the kitchen a round of PBRs for $5. Will definitely come back!
