“A really good place for a family meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Small but a nice place. Good value, didn't feel like we paid tourist prices. Feeding 4 teenagers isn't easy. They all found something that made them happy. Local beer, good selection. Friendly staff. Did I say good food? You won't be disappointed.

“Fish tacos are the BEST!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013 via mobile

I love the fish tacos. A plate of 3 huge ones! YUM! My husband eats their elk burger. Lean and cooked to perfection. We were there on a Sunday and so was everyone else. It's a very small place and people were flowing in one after the other. Even groups of 5 and 6. The waitress was very used to this and was doing an amazing job of getting people seated without too long of a wait. Stick it out. It is worth the wait! Great fresh food. Summer service on the patio is nice too.

Awesome food. Great service and cool atmosphere. Limited seating and people waiting to get in. Go early for lunch/dinner!

“Best Place in Pagosa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

By far the best food in Pagosa for us. We come in every year to ski from Atlanta. We live in the city in Va-Hi district where the food is pretty good and varied so we have something to compare it to. The tacos are outstanding and while the place is small and sometimes hard to get into (because the food is so good), the wait is always worth it and the service staff has always been attentive and pleasant.

Is this haute cuisine? Hell no, but I have yet to be served a bad dish at Kip's and who cares what the food is served on so long as its good? This is not a big menu, mostly focused on the baja tacos which is what I come for. I don't think I've ever had a burger there, but the beer is cold and the atmosphere is lively.

We ski, hit the springs and then eat at Kips. Pretty close to heaven.
