One orders food at the counter and it is brought to you. Place is small but food was quite good, meeting our expectations as Californians familiar with Mexican food. Very reasonably priced.

Pork carnitas tacos were very tasty. Large servings. Granddaughter ordered small order of nachos, came on very large platter, more than 2-3 people could eat. Came here after our group of 16 was told at Francisco's that the kitchen staff could not handle that many orders for our large group. We were served promptly at Nini's. Highly recommend!

Nini's has the best fish tacos in town - the fish is NOT frozen chunks thrown in a deep fryer like so many other places in Durango. This is my "go to" place when I want a different kind of salad...so many choices - they've never let me down. Stop in for lunch and enoy their patio out back -... More

Nice little Mexican restaurant just down the street from the Durango-Silverton Railroad Depot. Very fresh ingredients made to order & very quick, friendly service. Burrito was delicious!

It was late, we were hungry and we needed a dog friendly place to eat. After calling several places we found Nini's, a true life saver. We informed them we had a small dog with us, no problem. When we arrived they took our order (even though it was ten minutes before closing time) and then took us to a... More

My wife and I are vegan. While Nini's have many non-veg. options, they do have an excellent veggie burrito as well as veggie tacos and quesadillas. We love the regular burrito and split it for lunch. You can order without cheese or sour cream, and they have vegan selections for rice and beans. Out favorite salsa is the Mango Habanero... More
