Yummy. Yummy. Yummy. Yummy.

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... read 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!

2-locations in Durango, staff are always nice, MEX food good, setup like a subway. Line up pick and and what you want. They are a product of their own success. At peak times there can be a bottle neck at the front door. so if your in a hurry this may not be the place. But if you wait you... More

We are locals and go here maybe once or twice a month. Very fresh ingredients and great choices. We love the bowls. And the mango salsa is the best. Simple friendly environment. Not fast food- but good food fast. The locals love this place and have since it opened.

We visited the Zia Taqueria on the south end town. The resturaunt was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. Would definitely visit again and recommend for a quick but fresh option to Mecian food.
