Nini's is just across the street from the train station and down a few doors toward city center. We discovered it among the many eating options in Durango while returning to our timeshare. My wife, who has never met a stranger, engaged three ladies sitting at a table on the sidewalk in conversation about what they were eating. One had... More

having seen great looking food in front of diners as we passed this place days prior, we made this our supper selection after the train ride. We had the nachos--capable of serving four, and the quesadilla, which was clearly entre sized. Service was great and the specialty salsas were delicious. Best deal in town!

Stopped for a quick bite while walking thru Durango, great stop. Their nachos are big, share! They have so many choices on taco ingredients and different kinds of salsas, we will have to go back to try more. Nice seating patio in the back, hidden from the front!

This place has got the best Nachos and margarita in Durango. Great mexican food all around, served up by a friendly and helpful staff. If you looking for great lunch spot, you found it in Nini's... in the summer sit on the patio out back. Well done all around.

Good food at an inexpensive price. Can eat in or take out. Enjoyed having locally brewed beer with the food.

My husband and son and I ate dinner at Nini's because it looked like a beachside taco stand. If there had been a beach outside, I might have given this a three, but without, well, it just wasn't good. The gals working there were very nice and helpful and all, but the food was average at best. The margarita tasted... More

Stopped here for a quick dinner after a busy day because it was close to our hotel. We loved the food! The quesadillas were a very large portion and we had more than enough. Everything was fresh! I would definitely go back again. Yum! Super casual: order at the counter, seat yourself at a table.
