Emilio's When It Was Open Had Good Food Had Different Variety Which Was Good For Being A Mexican Restaurant!! Loved that they had Birria/Barbacoa which you really can't find in Durango or close by so that was very awesome! Service was nice and pretty fast.

Although I haven't had a chance to visit Emilio's recently (in fact, I'm not sure if it's there anymore) when I had visited the restaurant, the service was quick, the staff were friendly and my quest for the best chili relleno in America was close to being found. Emilio's has come as close to my favorite as has any relleno... More

Enjoyed a great lunch today - Chili Verde. Good spice, not too hot. Found out that they do serve breakfast and am really looking forward to going there again.

We have been having breakfast at Emilios for over a year and they served outstanding food. Recently the restaurant was sold and the new owners have removed all of the great breakfast dishes from the menu. The only items left are the burritos. So sad. Hopefully the new owners will realize their mistake soon. Then we'll go back.

In the "main mall" far back corner. Sort of out of the way yet right down town on main. Atmosphere wasn't great but didn't ruin it for me. Service was fast and seemed like a regular downtown working lunch crowd. Price was very reasonable. I'm no expert but felt like very Americanized Mexican cuisine but I don't see why that... More

Can't beat Emilios for breakfast burritos and coffee. A great place to start your Durango adventure in the historic downtown.

I have lived in the area since 1983. We are blessed with many great restaurants but Emilios is one of my favorites. You often see the fire department eating here in the mornings. It is hidden in the Main Street Mall so survives by word of mouth. The breakfasts are great! The carne asada steak and eggs is one of... More

We've eaten here several times. Good service and a variety of items on the menu - not just mexican, you can have pasta with shrimp! Informal, great for families. It's in the downtown Mall and has a TV for sports fans.
