11th Street Station is a culinary collective with a progressive vision and a nod to the location’s past. From the 1920s through the 1970s, the corner of Main Avenue and 11th Street was home to locally owned and operated auto repair shops and fuel stations. The food trucks and food trailers parked here now aren’t here for service; they’re here to serve you. Seven small, but robust food truck options encircle the original service station now turned Ernie’s Bar, which pours craft brews, libations, coffee and more. From tacos to pizza, sushi to Thai cuisine and gourmet sliders, 11th Street Station’s independent food truck kitchens can cure any craving. Each food truck vendor is locally owned and operated, in keeping with our Main Street culture. The grounds provide enclosed and exposed dining right in the heart of downtown Durango. It’s outside. It’s fair fare. It’s relaxed. It’s Main Street Durango.
