An economical great value restaurant for all

Three of us were treated well by a good well trained staff. Each of us ordered a 3 taco plate (white fish, shrimp and pork) to share and topped it off with beer. The tacos were excellent and each variety was appreciated by each of us. It was nice to see that such a broad demographic groupwas... read more

We had just pulled into the spot we were camping in, about 17 miles outside of Pagosa Springs, it was late and we were hungry. Kips looked like a "diners, drive ins, and dives" sort of spot. Thankfully, they were still serving food. I had grilled shrimp tacos and my friend had an elk burger. Both were fresh and tasty.... More

We eat her every time we are Pagosa Springs. Always have a great time, live entertainment, great menu. I always take home some of their hot sauces. Set on the patio and enjoy the fresh air. Local brews are great if you drink beer. My wife always has a margarita or two.

This is always my favorite place! Great food and some of the best service ever! I am always greeted with smiles and hugs and it makes it that much more exciting to be there! It makes all the difference when everyone smiles all the time! Highly recommended!

Kip's is a very relaxed dining experience, perfect for someone on vacation. Our group of five went twice in one week because it was so good! The food was great and the service was even better! Our drinks were never less than half full and the wait staff was very friendly.

Yes, hole in the wall that is actually appealing! However, very disappointed in the food. Four of us waited well over 45 minutes for an outside table on a Friday night. Normally that is not a problem as Friday nights are busy everywhere. We enjoyed tasty margaritas while we waited. (Inside was much too hot to enjoy eating.) We should... More

Excellent food and margaritas, we have eaten at Kip's every time we visit Pagosa, the latest was on June 21, food was excellent as usual and margaritas were superb, the service however was lacking, we did not see our waitress much and would have liked to order another round of drinks sooner but she did not come by our table...

The service was great and the ambiance relaxed. But the unexpected twist on the tacos was deliciously surprising. Try the #2 DOS DYNAMITE DIABLOS 2 Tacos: 2 Roasted Hatch Green Chiles stuffed with Mozzarella Cheese, Top Sirloin in a Corn & Flour Tortilla. Simply delicious!!! Can't wait to go back for more!
