A group of us enjoyed the food at Kip's. It is a very small place with a very limited amount of tables. We had to sit near the front door which was a very drafty area. Will go back but will wait for warmer weather.

I have been to Pagosa many times and had never been to Kip's because it seemed like it would just have greasy bar food. But I read all the great reviews on Yelp, TripAdvisor, Urbanspoon, so I thought I would try it.

This was a great meal, although it was more of a bar atmosphere than we are comfortable with when travelling with young children. Everything was great, though and we enjoyed the meal. Good selection and fair prices.

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!
