The chips were great and not greasy. The salsa was very good and had a little bit of a kick. We both had enchiladas and they were very good and came hot from the kitchen. However, the margaritas were just average. The service was excellent,...More

The food is very good, service is somewhat slow. Parking is difficult, so go early. Always busy, but worth it.

Always enjoy our visits here. Food is tasty and ample, prices are right, and it always feels friendly. On the main drag but away from downtown, free parking. Way better than any Mex food chain.

Tacos Nayarit is my go to mexican restaurant in Durango. The margaritas are great, I love the homemade salsa, and all the authentic dishes. And I really like the family atmosphere that the owners provide.

Nayarit Mexican Cuisine is located on Main Avenue in Durango. We provide a family friendly environment, so bring the kids. At the same time, we make a great hangout for a night out with friends or a date. We offer a full bar with beers on tap, in bottles, and any mixed drink you would like. Be sure to try our margaritas! We invite you to enjoy the warm Colorado sun, breeze, or moonlight on our spacious patio. Have a taste of some of our customer's favorite dishes off the menu, including the seafood soup, camarones, flautas, and oysters. Here's what just a few of our happy customers had to say about their dining experience with us.
