Zia's is a must stop in Durango, so much so that we went 4 times during our weekend stay! The lines can be a little bit busy but they get through to you quickly. If you order a burrito bowl, you can purchase a tortilla on the side, which is what I did but they also include a handful of... More

You get to choose all the fresh ingredients as you build your own burrito, quesadilla or salad. There are numerous choices of rice, beans, chicken, beef or pork. The line can be long but well worth the wait.

Fresh fresh fresh! Same concept as Chipotle restaurants. You line up and pick your type of meal, your protein, your garnishes, etc. And it all made fresh right in front of you! Everything is really tasty goodness and you'll leave with a happy full belly!

This is a local version of Chipotle and much better. The daily specials are excellent values and the quality and authenticity of the food is beyond expectations.

Six smiling young servers took our orders and made up the yummy Baja fish salad bowl in a jiffy. Zia is very popular, but meals are created before your eyes. Yummy!

We really enjoyed the food here. The fish tacos were prepared in front of us, the flavors were outstanding! It is counter service like Moe's or Chipotle, but the food is so fresh and tasty. Also, this food is cheap!! $6.50 for two HUGE fish tacos? You can't even eat at taco bell for that price. They also have Jarritos... More

I'm not a real fan of Mexican food, but read the reviews and wanted to try this place. We shared a salad bowl and a quesadilla, and they were both wonderful! The lime-cilantro dressing is to die for, and I don't even like cilantro! I could eat here every night and be happy! Healthy food at reasonable prices!

I live in a town about an hour away from Durango. When I go into town, it is often around lunch time. I would not consider another lunch stop (and dinner sometimes too) than Zia Tagueria! The staff is fantastic, service is excellent, food is fresh, prices are reasonable. This restaurant always delivers a great experience. Move over Chipotle, Zia... More

We get dinner fro Zia pretty often and were happy that we could order on line now. We ordered 3 orders of the Wahoo fish tacos with mango salsa and a side salad with jicama. When we placed the order we were given a time that it would be ready, but it was 15 minutes later. When we got the... More
