Bib up – it’s Pork and Brew time in New Mexico

Git your bibs on, New Mexicans. A celebration of meat and beer is knocking at the door for the 16th year in a row and you’ll want to sink your teeth in.

Welcome back, Pork and Brew Festival.

Once featured on The Cooking Channel’s “Carnival Eats,” this Rio Rancho festival is inviting all barbecued pork and beer...

The best restaurant in Pagosa Springs is a food truck

“If you come between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m., we can most easily accommodate you...”

That’s the response we received after contacting Sage Mobile Eatery in Pagosa Springs about stopping by to check out their food. We don’t normally warn restaurants we’re coming, but this food truck, located right off 160, across from a gas...

Check out The Boathouse at Electra before it closes again

Part of me doesn’t even want to tell you about the amazing dinner I just had at the Boathouse at Electra Lake. If I do, you’ll make a reservation. Seating here is pretty limited, so I might not be able to get a table the next time I want to go. But, that’s selfish, and I know in my heart that the best things in life are...

Pop-up dinners have arrived at 2nd Deli & Spirits

Pop-up restaurants are (ahem) popping up all over the country, especially in big cities. Some chefs use them as a low cost way to try out a new menu concept and host the dinners for multiple days in a row to garner interest or attract investors. Others create companies that live entirely outside the brick-and-mortar,...

Quest for the best grilled cheese in Durango

In our May 23 issue, writer Lindsay Mattison took the hard-line stance that grilled cheese sandwiches are indeed dairy crack. We still stand by that statement (so, fight us) but felt the claim warranted further investigation. We already know that homemade grilled cheese is, in the words of Kanye, “God’s vessel” (for clarity’s...

Hotel Taco Bell could be heaven or hell (probably heaven)

Welcome to the Hotel Taco Bell. Such a lovely place. You can stuff your face. They livin’ it up at the Hotel Taco Bell. What a nice surprise, you’ll turn oversized.

OK fine, the DGO rendition of “Hotel California” isn’t that good, but Taco Bell is opening up a hotel Palm Springs, Calif. and we have a feeling you’ll be...

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.)

On...

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...
