I've eaten Mexican (New Mexican) food all over this city and at most of the popular restaurants and some of the not so popular restaurants. I have to say that I was not greatly impressed the first time I ate at Durans. I was expecting food similar to the food I had come to expect at the pharmacy in the... More

Katherine our server was knowledgeable about the menu and very pleasant. Instead of N.M. food I was craving a burger.. the 8 oz Angus green chile cheeseburger on ciabatta really delivered and was very tasty. My wife had an a la carte chicken enchilada with red & green which was also excellent. Nice big pieces of chicken breast were very... More

Had a great dinner here last night. Very good, all handmade to each order. Good service, very busy on a Friday evening. If we lived locally, would definitely return.

Located in old ABQ Fire Station #8, Duran's Station is a real treat. Great Real New Mexican comfort food and incredible red and green chili! But what will make us go back is the service. Everyone there was super friendly, had a great outgoing attitude and delivered great fast service! Give these folks a try...you won't be disappointed.

We took a group of five for dinner on a very busy evening (thanks to the balloon festival in town). Between us, we had enchiladas, rellenos, taco salad, and sopapillas for dessert. All were outstanding, and the beans that accompanied were whole pinto beans in a nice sauce with melted cheese on top. We learned a new term for "red... More

A friendly staff with a great menu. Helped decide between the green chili and red chili for my meal. Brought some of both! Green for me:). This is a must for anyone visiting for a short period.

Tonight my wife and I had dinner at Duran Station. We thought the food was excellent with a few exceptions. The salsa was a too hot. We are long time residents of Albuquerque and are used to hot salsa. When we inquired about it our waiter said it contains jalapenos. Not exactly "New Mexican". My wife had the Roast beef... More

I absolutely love Durans Station and now eat there weekly! Nothing fancy about this place but if you want true authentic New Mexican food, this the place to eat!! I have eaten at countless New Mexican restaurants with much higher prices but none compare to Durans Station! Try it, you will love it!
