Michelle's Restaurant in Durango Colorado 81301

Enchiladas at Michelle's cafe Durango Co

A friend we had made in our previous residency in Dynamic Durango told us that the chief cook and kitchen wizard from Farquarts (now closed)was opening a new restaurant.  The Farquharts pizza was legendary, and daily specials were always good.

We waited for a couple of weeks and then began to check daily.  Yesterday we saw the "open" sign.

Farquarts had been a favorite of ours for many years.  Recently the owner had died.  There is a new restaurant in that old  space, but delicious memories still occur when ever we went by.

With the opening of Michelle's, the deliciousness of Farquharts is now being recreated daily.  It is located further up Main Street, in the old Blockbuster locale.

The food is exceptional.  Plenty per portion and all home made.  Today's special was chicken enchiladas with green chilis and all the trimmings.  See the sopapia?

The place is cozy and very clean!  Perhaps the fact it is brand new helps?

Affordable,  friendly and complete with scrumptious food, Michelle's fills the void that the closing of Farquarts left.

Treat yourself!  We believe you will be glad you gave it a try!
