Really tasty tacos and burritos. Lots of choices, lightening fast service and a nice outdoor patio in the back.

Expensive for what you get. I had the blue corn veggie tacos. The tortillas were extremely dry and the veggies were shredded lettuce and grilled onions, w/ a stray sliver of carrot or zucchini. All for $10.

My boyfriend and I stopped in for lunch on May 30 hoping for something quick and cheap. I told the waitress that I would like 3 sides together as a meal. We noticed after sitting down that she had charged me about $10 for what should have been $4.50. I went up to politely ask them to correct the mistake.... More

We both wanted a light meal so we checked out Nini's. I had the fish taco's and my husband The Carnitas Tacos. On a plus side, the fish tacos were made with blue corn meal shells.

Very casual atmosphere. The food is great. I would recommend the chicken quesodillas. They also have awesome salsa.

Of all the places we ate in Durango, Nini's came out on top. Blue corn tortillas....yum. Mango margaritas.....double yum! Mexicanish and very reasonably priced for Durango. Right across from the train station and well within walking distance of downtown Durango.

Nini's is a local favorite for fresh Mexican food! We go there for the great food, but also to sit on their quiet patio away from what can be a pretty crazy Main Street during the summer. Try the nachos...get everything on them and they'll feed your whole family! Buy a thirst and send them a picture of you in... More

Nini's is an authentic, Mexican Taqueria. Their down-home wraps are fantastic, especially the quesadillas.

Decent tacos and fresh ingredients made the experience one I'd be willing repeat in the future, the standout is the selection of Salsas that are available as toppers.

Good service and everything is fresh, fresh ... did I say fresh! You can watch them making their various salsas, I like their pico de gall especially.
