Fast and delicious

Like the title says, it's fast and delicious. The employees are friendly. It's almost like a mom and pop Chipotle. We enjoyed it!

I have been here multiple times and am never disappointed. The food is fresh and local, which makes it taste so good. The atmosphere is very inviting and you'll always love coming back.

Mexican fast food. Laid out just like Qboba. Though they actually have a few more options- including margaritas, housemade hibiscus iced tea and horchata. I had the bowl of rice and beans and chose all of my salad bowl toppings. My husband got the extra large burrito stuffed with the toppings of his choice. Fast, easy, fresh, great location. Highly...

You can have a really good meal quick. We stopped traveling both ways to and from Santa Fe, NM. We were very pleased with the quality, freshness, and value both of our meals.

I LOVE Zia. They have great food, seriously, everything there is great. The menu has a lot of choices from tacos to salad bowls to fish. I personally always get the same thing. Two tacos, just veggies (there are three or four types and even more selections of meat which I have had too), you can choose from several types... More

Stopped in with the family to have dinner because it was highly rated in Durango. It was set up similarly to a Qdoba or Chipotle with the quality being more similar to Qdoba than Chipotle. The food was fine but nothing special. If you like Qdoba style food and service then you will probably like this place too. They have... More

We've been several times and always enjoy the food, wether it be a Burrito or Nachos or whatever. Staff always friendly and helpful...have been sensitive to gluten free needs.

Small place, but fast service. Build-your-own menu lets you pick the ingredients from a large selection of fresh looking items. Kind of like a Mexican subway shop. Bus your own table keeps the cost down also. Don't go for a leisurely meal, but great for a quick fill-up.

While in vacation in Durango we stopped in and were not disappointed. We got there right at closing but weren't turned away. In fact I'm sure all the staff wanted to go home but they still greated us in a friendly professional manner and got our food within minutes. The food was very good, topped off with the house margarita... More

Be prepared to wait a bit. There's often a line. That's because the food is right on, especially after garnishing your meal (with so many choices) to suit your very own personal taste. Yumm!
