Fodor's Review

A favorite of old-timers who know their way around a blue-corn enchilada (and know that the red is the chile to pick for it), this lunch counter serves fine, freshly made and warm flour tortillas, too. Duran's harkens to the days when every drugstore had a soda fountain; it's got a full kitchen now, with your choice of counter stools, cozy table, or the little shaded patio right off old Route 66. By the way, the pharmacy itself still offers the personal care it did since its founding back in 1942, and the traveler will find just about any sundry they might have a need for—as well as a sophisticated selection of New Mexico-centric books and gifts.
