Funky Casual Mexican Food

Very casual atmosphere. The food is great. I would recommend the chicken quesodillas. They also have awesome salsa.

Of all the places we ate in Durango, Nini's came out on top. Blue corn tortillas....yum. Mango margaritas.....double yum! Mexicanish and very reasonably priced for Durango. Right across from the train station and well within walking distance of downtown Durango.

Nini's is a local favorite for fresh Mexican food! We go there for the great food, but also to sit on their quiet patio away from what can be a pretty crazy Main Street during the summer. Try the nachos...get everything on them and they'll feed your whole family! Buy a thirst and send them a picture of you in... More

Nini's is an authentic, Mexican Taqueria. Their down-home wraps are fantastic, especially the quesadillas.

Decent tacos and fresh ingredients made the experience one I'd be willing repeat in the future, the standout is the selection of Salsas that are available as toppers.

Good service and everything is fresh, fresh ... did I say fresh! You can watch them making their various salsas, I like their pico de gall especially.

My daughter and I were traveling through Durango CO and found this wonderful small restaurant closer to the historic train station. The owners are very welcoming and the recipes have some delightful twists. I am not a big fish fan, but their SW Fish soup was incredible. My daughter had the chicken quesadilla with rice and pinto beans and commented... More

Stopped by here for dinner after skiing. We were heading back to Albuquerque that night so wanted something good and fast, and my wife wanted to see Old Town Durango. The food was great, the people were really friendly, and it wasn't too expensive. The chicken has a bit of a kick to it, so if you HATE spicy, it... More

Ordered just a 1/2 order of their chicken nachos (...with tomatillo sauce baked in) for two of us and we were stuffed! Went back the next night for more nachos 'cause they were so dang good! I still crave those nachos!
