I liked the rustic atmosphere and the service was fine, but did not care for the margaritas or the tacos. I found the prices high given the quality of the food.

I have been to kips many times and have seen the food sort of deteriorate. They have become a mostly taco place though the have good burgers. The tacos re good but not like they used to be. Music outside on weekends. The Barbacoa tacos are gone but the tequila selection is still good. Kip learned about his dishes in... More

The tacos were very good. Our orders were taken with a promise to return with sauces; that is the last we saw of our server. I think he was actually a bartender who came over to take our order as we saw him later behind the bar full time. He never checked on us once nor did we get the... More

I apologize that you had less than stellar service during your visit to Kip's Grill. We strive to deliver excellent service, so your feedback is much appreciated. I don't know if you were sitting in the bar area or not, but bartenders should only ever take the table that is in the bar. We have some new employees and we... More

This time of year is the busy season in Creede and Kips stays full. We ate there twice during our stay. The first time their computers were down for awhile but they muddled through. We had elk burgers with chipotle sauce and fries. The second time there, we had carnitas, which were very good. Overall, they get 3 stars, with... More

Aug 09, 2016. Party of 9 for lunch, they set up a table. Pizza was rated very good along with a variety of other items. Friendly staff and attentive to our request. If this place was close to home we would use it frequently.

Kips has really changed over the past couple of years but this summer we arrived with lowered expectations and frankly, those expectations were met. The "vibe" was a bit better in that it appears there was significant turnover in staff over the past year although a couple of the long-time (older) ladies who have always been great are still there....

Had hoped to go to a pizza place up the road, but they (and some other businesses in town) seem to close at 4: weird. So Kip's it was, and we were not disappointed. The limeade was fantastic, a real thirst-quencher. Chips and salsa (a black bean salsa, not primarily tomato-based) were also top notch. The #3 Roberto Special is... More

Nice place, conveniently located on the edge of town. Good service, decent food, and an open-air porch with live music and propane warmers for any weather.
