Stopped for a quick bite while walking thru Durango, great stop. Their nachos are big, share! They have so many choices on taco ingredients and different kinds of salsas, we will have to go back to try more. Nice seating patio in the back, hidden from the front!

This place has got the best Nachos and margarita in Durango. Great mexican food all around, served up by a friendly and helpful staff. If you looking for great lunch spot, you found it in Nini's... in the summer sit on the patio out back. Well done all around.

Good food at an inexpensive price. Can eat in or take out. Enjoyed having locally brewed beer with the food.

My husband and son and I ate dinner at Nini's because it looked like a beachside taco stand. If there had been a beach outside, I might have given this a three, but without, well, it just wasn't good. The gals working there were very nice and helpful and all, but the food was average at best. The margarita tasted... More

Stopped here for a quick dinner after a busy day because it was close to our hotel. We loved the food! The quesadillas were a very large portion and we had more than enough. Everything was fresh! I would definitely go back again. Yum! Super casual: order at the counter, seat yourself at a table.

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
