“Mixed experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2011 via mobile

Our party of four stopped by for lunch. Started with cups and salsa. Salsa was fresh and homemade, chips were heavy. Bison burgers and hamburger were good. Fish tacos were over cooked and tasteless. Waitress was friendly but forgetful. So altogether a mixed experience.

“Kip's is the place to eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2011 via mobile

We stopped here at Kip's because we saw it had a nice deck and we love eating outside when the weather is nice.
Boy were we pleasantly surprise to see how busy it was. We were greeted right away with kindness and smiles. The waitress told us if we wanted to eat outside we could have a seat at the bar until a table was available. So we only had to wait about 10 minutes fir the table. Thor deck was a little small but it was very clean and inviting.
I had the El Dialbo tacos with steak and green chilies and cheese. OMG! Those were about the BEST tacos I've had in a very long time. My husband had the fis tacos (special of the day) and he loved them. The waitress brought us two jars of ho sauce. One was jalapeño and the other was XXX Habanero and that was my favorite. It wasn't too hot but had loads of flavor. I didn't finish my tacos (3) because I'm not a big eater, so the waitress was my table asking if I wanted them to go when she noticed I was done eating.
After my husband finished she asked us if we wanted dessert and told us they have peach pie from the local bakery down the street so we decided to have it with vanilla ice cream and am j glad we did because it was delicious and although I was pretty full from my tacos, I made room for pie.
So if you find yourself I. The Pagosa Springs area, you might was to stop my Kip's for lunch or dinner because it is worn every penny you spend.

“Cool Place... decent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2011

I enjoyed the buffalo burger and the hot sauces are very good. It's a pretty popular place in Pagosa... great for lunch.

“Fish Taco's are excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2011 via mobile

Two locals confirmed our plan to catch this place for a meal. They specifically said to try the fish taco's and they were right. The place was really busy on a Friday night and live music started at 6pm. The wait staff were minimally pleasant but could use some happy pills or something.
