The best soft tacos ever. excellent food and service

A very casual atmosphere, very relaxed. Kip's is great for visitors but the regulars are always there. I've taken out-of-town company there many times.

The food is good, but the place is so small and it gets to packed you can't find anywhere to sit and the wait is always like 30 minutes to hour. And it is hard to stand and wait for a table because it is so full people are running into you.

Pagosa Springs is not the place for fine dining. We had a great dinner here. Attentive wait staff and average food

If you have a group of more than four people please go somewhere else. This restaurant is tiny and gets packed very quickly. When busy it is not very handicap friendly. Some creative street tacos and burgers are on the menu. A favorite of the locals.

This place is not designed for a big party. We had a party of 4 (adults w/2 kids) and it was a bit tight, but if you don't mind that and the noise...it's a great spot. Our tacos (steak and shrimp) were really good, kids loved their hot dog, margaritas were strong and service was great! We also had the... More

The Silver Coin Margs aren't diluted with that normal sweet crap...these Margs are lime juice, contreau and agave nectar and plenty of top self tequila (of your choice)! The buffalo burger is one of the best I've ever had! The Ono fish tacos rock! I recommend adding cheese & avocado slices. Being a native New Mexican, the Stuffed Green Chile... More

Shrimp tacos were killer! Salsa and guacamole was fresh and tasty, great place! Friendly and quick service paired with the local atmosphere make Kip's a winner. Don't forget to try the peanut butter pie!

My boyfriend came here on our first night in Pagosa Springs, but it just so happened to be a Friday night AND New Years Day. We expected everywhere to be busy, but we were highly recommended to come here so we endured the wait. The place is very tiny with minimal room to wait, especially in 11 degree cold, but... More
