Scientific facts: Grilled cheese is actually dairy crack

Growing up, I was the worst. I don’t know how my mother handled it, but I would only eat a handful of foods: buttered noodles, cheese pizza, grilled cheese, and plain hamburgers without ketchup. (In case you’re wondering, I eat all kinds of foods today but still stand firmly behind the ketchup-is-gross sentiment.)

There’s rustic comfort in the fried food at Jack & Janelle’s Country Kitchen

There’s a feeling of unquenched dissatisfaction with life when you’re craving a very particular entrée and you have no idea where you might find it.

In our case, we’d been drooling over dreams of a hot plate of golden brown fried chicken (not chicken tenders, mind you) with a side of garlic-y mashed potatoes slathered...

Burger Theory, Durango’s newest burger joint, isn’t perfect, but shows some promise

There is a learning curve for every new restaurant, one in which the staff learns how to make all of the pieces – the kitchen, the bar, the wait staff, the bussers, and the like – come together seamlessly. Right now, Burger Theory, Durango’s newest burger spot, is in the midst of that curve.

Not that that’s necessarily...

Burger King’s meatless patties are coming America’s way

Get your burger bibs out vegetarians cuz Burger King is delivering the Impossible Whopper across the nation.

It might not be a Krabby Patty, but this meatless wonder kicked so much ass at its trial run in St. Louis that the Burger King overlords have decided to share with everyone else. In fact, by the end of the year,...

Hometown Hamburgers in Farmington is a killer, no-frills burger joint

There isn’t much to the white building that houses Hometown Hamburgers. This little locally owned stop sits right on Main Street in downtown Farmington, but if you didn’t know it was there, you’d easily drive right past it. To do so would be to miss a little burger gem, one that warrants a visit or two when you’re in that...

Making friends with Fernet, one shot at a time

I’m not really one of those people who goes out to the bar and walks away with a handful of new best friends. Although I’d consider myself outgoing, I just don’t like to bother people. I figure bartenders are usually too busy to stand there and chat with me, and I never like to assume the stranger sitting next to me wants...

Get your fill of weird history, beer, and comfort food at Three Rivers Brewery and Eatery

Stumbling through the downtown district of Farmington to find the right door for the Three Rivers Brewery could not have been more embarrassing. The New Mexico brewery and restaurant takes up an entire block, and there are various parts of the business – the brewstillery lounge, the tap room, the pizzeria, and the...

Free pouring vs. jiggering: the jigger gets a bad rap

Not too long ago, I found myself at the bar at El Moro sampling a new cocktail from their spring menu. While I sipped on my Strawberries Taste Like Strawberries (which is 100 percent delightful, btw), I couldn’t help myself from ordering an old-time favorite: a stemmed shot class filled with a peculiarly dark liquid. The...

Rubia’s real queso and fried cheesecake brought our entire table to happy tears

There’s this magical, rare, joyous moment when your eyes scan a menu and you land on an item that you haven’t tasted in so long. The very possibility of it being served on a plate in front of you almost becomes an emotional experience.

For me, this moment happened when my companions and I took an evening trip down over...

Don’t eat crappy tortillas: Grab some from Farmington’s Tortillas Doña Maria instead

I have a confession: I am a picky tortilla eater. I will side-eye the hell out of you if you whip out a bag of Mission Tortillas for anything other than to use as poor man frisbees, and if you try to serve me enchiladas on flour tortillas, you will go on my blocked list. It’s fresh tortillas or bust.

And, before you...

Here’s to hoping Starlight’s CBD drinks start a Durango trend

We here at DGO Mag appreciate a good bottle of booze just as much as the next person (probably too much, which you’d know if you spotted us at Snowdown), but let’s face it: alcohol isn’t very good for you.

It dehydrates you, it’s chock-full of sugar and carbs, and we don’t think we need to remind anyone that hangovers...
