I love this place. The staff is not the friendliest but the food is amazing. It's very tiny but it's worth the wait. Just keep a coat nearby cause when the door opens brrrrrrrr.

I love this place ! They have great food. My favorite are their shrimp tacos. The owner is always there an makes sure you feel at home. This is why you need to get there early or you will be waiting for a table. Either way well worth the wait!

Fantastic Food! Fun atmosphere. We've been to Kips a few times. Expect to wait if you get there past 5. It's a small place and always full. Food is great. They have several types of salsa. Good drink selection. Menu is simple. Every thing I've ever tried has been fantastic!

We always have lunch at Kips when visitng Pagosa. They have the best tacos, all sorts of different varieties. And their homemade salsas are super good, altho very hot. You can buy their salsa to go. And the waitress we had was I'm sure the one we had on our last trip and she is super friendly, super efficient and... More

You might not expect much rom a restaurant titled "grill and cantina," but I have had truly stellar meals there, better than in four star restaurants. Last time I ate there I tipped the cook in addition to my server. I had the special, a combination of tacos al carbon and barbacoa that was phenomenal. My date had the Tacos... More

Don't forget to pick up your coupon for free chips and salsa at the door. This is where the locals always go and visiting hunters.

We have eaten at Kips the last couple of times we have visited Pagosa, and did so again on this trip. We were not disappointed. Everything tasted good and the place is always packed. One word of warning is that the place is small, so you might have to wait. I think they have like 7 or 8 tables, plus... More

Kip's Grill and Cantina is a unique experience in Pagosa Springs. The restaurant is small, full of character and delicious food! The servers were amazing!

Fish tacos were awesome and a local favorite! We also had to try the elk burger with their grilled stuffed green chile and it was amazing!!! Beer was cold, fun atmosphere and excellent service. The place is very small so in the winter it fills up very quickly. Summer is probably a little better because they have a nice outdoor... More
