“Authentic Mexican”
Reviewed 5 May 2013

We live in Durango and eat here on a regular basis. We also winter in Cozumel and I can tell you the quality, preparation and servings are very authentic as is a lot of the flavors. There are other Mexican places in town but they are more commercial and/or typical North Americanized Mexican food with excessive portions smothered in cheese and sour cream along with massive portions of rice and beans. The food at TN is very good, very authentic and nice portions at a good value.

“Good...authentic Mexican”
Reviewed 22 April 2013

This restaurant is the most authentic in regards to Mexican food in Durango. True Mexican food does not incorporate being smothered in cheese or have anything to do with flour tortillas. The tacos that are served here is what you would receive in Mexico. Most people review that the tacos were way too small...and that is actually how they truly are in Mexico (served in a standard corn tortilla). I know that people will continue to be disappointed in the size of tacos that they serve at this restaurant (Americans want everything super sized) but just order more than 2 of their tacos and you'll be satisfied. My personal favorite is the Tacos Carnitas (pork). Please also remember that (again) since this is the most authentic place...the ceviche dishes are served RAW and that the marination of the citrus juice is what "cooks" the fish. So please be aware of that (those of you who steer away from raw foods). The staff are nice and prices are not too bad either.

“Yummy Mexican!”
Reviewed 2 April 2013

This is a very small (capacity 41) restaurant with not a lot of ambiance, and it doesn't look like much from the outside. The food, however, was wonderful and we had great service. We had cactus tacos and beef tongue tacos that were outstanding. Plenty of non-exotic offerings available, too. I had chicken enchiladas covered with a cream sauce that to my surprise were probably the best enchiladas I've ever had. It was very busy on a Friday night and seemed to be filled with mostly Durango inhabitants (not many out of towners).

“Killer tacos”
Reviewed 24 November 2012 via mobile

If you're craving legit street style tacos this is the place. Authentic, delicious and cheap. Evidently these reviews need to be at least 100 characters so I wrote this sentence too.
