Loved all the salsas and meats. Our tacos were delicious. My son got seconds. Worth a stop. The staff is very friendly.

“Fast, Good Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We had dinner here after our day on the train and were looking for something fast. It is a counter service type restaurant. You order at the counter and they will bring it to your table. The food is cooked to order and very good. They also have a nice patio in back.

“Not so good this year”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We were really looking forward to our meal at Ninis. Part of it was our fault....we ate outside and the flies were so annoying But the burrito was almost cold and so unappetizing...too many flavors...some of the included items need to be on the outside..not inside. Maybe we need to try something else..tacos?

“Outstanding taqueria!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

We went there for takeout after reading so many nice reviews, and found Nini's to be every bit as good as people say. Knowing it might be our first and last time eating there, we (a couple) ordered a large selection of items, including veg quesadilla, soft corn tacos (veg and fish), and a variety of sides (guac, veg black beans, rice, two types of salsa).

The tacos were DELICIOUS. Nini's tops their tacos with a spicy, vinegar-based slaw that adds a nice burst of refreshing acidity that differs from so many "heavy" feeling tacos. The guacamole was also a winner, as was the mango and habanero salsa. In fact, the only item amongst everything we got that we didn't love was the rice, which was frankly dried out and kind of flavorless. Zia Taqueria has much better lime-cilantro rice!

Rice aside, the food was great and the counter service was brisk, efficient, and pleasant. Everything we got, and it was a lot, came in at ~$35; a couple could easily eat a great meal there for about fifteen bucks.

I would recommend Nini's unconditionally to anyone visiting Durango.
