Good and Inventive Street Tacos

I had one of each type of taco, chicken, beef and pork, with three different salsas. Yum! I should have skipped the chicken, not because it was not good just because chicken is not my thing. The tortillas were cold which was a bit disappointing, why not warm them up a bit before stuffing them... read more

TA rarely disappoints and this eatery was no different. This small fast casual place is not one to be missed! I love tacos, so I had to try the tacos. For $9.95, you get 3 good sized tacos. I picked corn, which usually tend to be small compared to their flour counterparts, but these were not small. I selected chicken,... More

Great little Mexican food place within a block of train. A young lady at the ticket both recommended this place and it was great. Very nice staff, clean restaurant and prices are good too. Now, the beef had a little bite to it but tasted great. Very good salsa and they had a variety too.

Nini's serves the BEST nachos in town. They are huge so be ready to share. You can add extras like chicken, beef, beans or rice. Everything else on the menu is amazing too. I love the tortilla salad and quesadillas. The home made salsas are wonderful too. They have everything from mild to hot. I personally love the chipotle one,... More

...no frills - just good food, good service and no extraordinary prices! Quesadilla salad w/chicken is the number 1 go to...or try one of their soup specials. Fish Tacos are extra tasty as well.

really good food. I particularly liked the soup special. I don't remember the name but it was a sort of tripeless menudo. it is an order at the counter place. took a bit of speed reading to decide what to have.

We wanted a light dinner and found what we wanted at Nini's Taqueria. My husband and I split a chicken quesadilla, which was one of the best we've ever had.

Nini's is a fun place to eat and the food is delicious! We both had the taco's and they will let you mix the fillings. My husband loved the chicken but I really enjoyed the fish. I also tried the barbacoa but the fish was my favorite. I loved the fact that they labeled these as gluten free so I... More

Walked by Nini's on several occasions while driving through Durango and was always intrigued. Last Monday while driving back to Arizona we stopped in and wow.... we both had burritos one was fish the other was pork. Both were top notch, we had the small and they were filling. The sauces were also very good. The smoked chipotle, was my... More
