AOL Travel Editor’s Review

As the name suggests, you'll have to walk past aisles of aspirin, toothpaste and magazines before you find the good eats at Duran. The action is at a small lunch counter off to the left from the main entrance. This is where a crew of crusty regulars—and intrepid visitors—gather for breakfast, with a big plate of huevos rancheros, or for lunch, when bowls of stew studded with spicy green chile are the standard order. The atmosphere is fluorescent-lit and no-nonsense, but this is some of the finest traditional New Mexican food you'll find in the city. The place takes cash only.
