Organic and delicious outdoor dining in Durango

After 8 years of operating out of our little food wagon, we have finally expanded into a bricks and mortar structure right across where the food wagon was on our ranch with gorgeous views of the cliffs and the terraces. With our new restaurant, not only do we have more space for efficient and faster service for our outdoor dining, we also have some indoor seating for inclement weather as well as year-round dining! The Market is under our same roof offering all local and regional produce and homemade goods from producers with similar intentions of organic and regenerative practices.

Our delicious meats, cheeses and vegetables are produced on the James Ranch using organic, sustainable, grass-based practices and have been for over 50 years. We strive to use organic ingredients in everything we serve from sauces to pickles. What the families at James Ranch do not produce, we do our best to purchase from local vendors that take pride in their quality products and ingredients.

This great little food wagon has been serving 100's of meals a day for the past 8 years. We've pushed it beyond its capacity, which is why we are building a new kitchen. Our customers have raved about the gourmet food that came out of that little kitchen and we are excited to continue to provide the same great tasting meals made with the purest, organic local ingredients possible.
