After getting off the train, most of the local restaurants closer to the station had long wait times. We had an infant with us and needed to get some food and get back to the hotel. I admit that I didn't have very high expectations for Nini's Taqueria, but I was pleasantly surprised! They have like 12 different salsas to... More

We tried a few different tacos, all made to order. Many homemade salsa choices! Tried a margarita. All excellent. Friendly service. We'll return.

So we stopped in the afternoon of arrival in town, very tired. Wow!! I would not call it fast food however the service was quick, but food was still great. Nachos the way they should be from an oven, no liquid cheese. But the house made salsas were incredible. Mango-Habanero is without a doubt the best wish I could have... More

This place is worth a visit just for the view of the Pagosa Springs across the river and the River Walk on the restaurant side.The food and service, however, are decidedly mediocre. Our meal was delivered almost immediately which suggests that the microwave gets a real workout in this kitchen. The service was slow and sometimes inattentive. Except for the... More

I had fish taco (9.95) for lunch today. The servers were friendly and the food was made on the spot. It is good that they have a variety of source for customers to choose. However, I find the source a little too heavy that I could not taste the fish that comes with the taco.

My wife is really picky when it comes to fish tacos and she thought these were good but not the best she's ever had. I had the barbacoa quesadilla and it was outstanding. I had it with the mango habenero salsa which is the perfect amount of tasty and spice. We also had a "margarita" and bottled soda. Total cost... More

I ate lunch there and found the food to be yummy! While it was quickly prepared, it tasted like freshly prepared Mexican food!

Although parking is a bit limited, the food is fast and good. Staff is helpful when you have questions.

This is always a favorite place for my family. It is a funky little taqueria located across from the Durango train station. All food is freshly made to order. They have a list of over 10 home made salsas from mild to flaming hot! We have never ordered anything that we didn't like. Just a fun little place to fill... More
