Before walking in the door, I was expecting a sit-down, casual restaurant, but the model here is Chipotle Mexican Grill where you move through a line and tell the staff how to construct your taco or burrito. The food quality is excellent and the staff is friendly, alert, helpful and quick. I wanted beef crispy tacos with a side of... More

Fast Food Mexican that tastes better then most expensive Mexican restaurants. I was on vacation in the Durango area and stumbled upon Zia. I sure wish we had Zia's in Ohio. I would eat there once a week. There were too many choices to list in this review. What I can tell you, if you like Mexican food, then give... More

Was looking for a quick bit to eat along with a drink. Loved the food here. The margaritas were tasty too! Lots of choices to pick from. Can't wait to go back and try some different.

So happy that my sister & brother-in-law brought us here after several hours of tubing. Everyone from our "basic" eater to our adventurous vegetarian found something delightful... And maybe a couple of things. I had the daily special -- chili rellanos-- with Jamaica ( hibiscus tea). Fabulous !

Took the family here based on the stellar reviews on Tripadvisor. I have to say that we were underwhelmed. The concept is the same as Chipotle or Freebirds, but honestly not as good. We ordered a quesadilla, a couple burritos and the Super Nacho Libre. Quesadillas were very good. Burritos were decent and the "super" nachos were tiny and expensive... More

Very reasonably priced. We were stunned by the line at 1:30, which moved a bit slowly--thus only 4 instead of 5 stars. Prices are great, menu is HUGE (which slows things down). Green chile pork was the best. If you need a quick meal, you will glad you tried Zia.

The food was tasty and healthy. Service was quick. Food is prepared (similar style to Chipolte chain), as you progress down a cafeteria type line and make your choices and preferences, with the sever. You are eating well in less than 10 minutes! Warning: the line can be long because this place is so popular. Avoid rush hour dining or... More
