Could have doubled up on the tortillas, as most places do. But fish tacos were absolutely wonderful.

Enjoyed delicious wahoo tacos with all the fixin's. They were generous with the fish, and it was great. Loved the varieties of salsas with our chips. Not a fancy place (you order your food in line and bus your own table), but good food, fast, and beer prices were better than some places we've been.

Despite the excellent prices, the high quality ingrediants, and colorful presentaion, the flavor doesn't match up. What should be an explosion of flavor in our mouth is more like a dud of texture and chewing. Try Nini's.

Zia is great, I prefer the North location because it's the original. The staff are also more friendly here. I love the rice bowls as I am gluten free. Well worth the wait if the line is long. Also no need to grab a table before ordering, the line to seat ratio works perfectly.

It's a Chipotle with fish. The fish tacos were excellent. We went to this restaurant twice in one weekend. Gets busy after 5:30 so go early. Stop at the little coffee shop in the same strip-mall if you want real coffee.

After just finishing eating here again, I am reminded of what I thought of the place after my last visit. The food is priced well, portions are large, and the service is good, but it is not high-quality. The guy who made made my meal was very helpful and did his best to get me a gluten-free option with what... More

Some reviews have likened this place to Chipotle. It has a much better selection and I think the food quality is as good or better. I had a quesadilla that was awesome.

We stopped after a long day at Mesa Verde. Wonderful super nachos! The weekend Special tamale of roasted red chilis and queso was huge and delicious. But the best was my pork with green chili soft taco! Enjoy!

When you arrive at a small restaurant and customers are lined up out the door, you know that you have found a great place. Limited menu but all the food is execellent.

After being disappointed with our favorite place in Durango last visit, we searched Tripadvisor for something new. Walking distance from our hotel, and great reviews made it an easy decision. Good, fresh food. Friendly staff. Order your food at the counter and it is made fresh, in front of you as the staff takes your preferences. Seat yourself. Great green... More
