Nini's is a fun place to eat and the food is delicious! We both had the taco's and they will let you mix the fillings. My husband loved the chicken but I really enjoyed the fish. I also tried the barbacoa but the fish was my favorite. I loved the fact that they labeled these as gluten free so I... More

Last Monday while driving back to Arizona we stopped in and wow.... we both had burritos one was fish the other was pork. Both were top notch, we had the small and they were filling. The sauces were also very good. The smoked chipotle, was my... More

Nini's is just across the street from the train station and down a few doors toward city center. We discovered it among the many eating options in Durango while returning to our timeshare. My wife, who has never met a stranger, engaged three ladies sitting at a table on the sidewalk in conversation about what they were eating. One had... More

having seen great looking food in front of diners as we passed this place days prior, we made this our supper selection after the train ride. We had the nachos--capable of serving four, and the quesadilla, which was clearly entre sized. Service was great and the specialty salsas were delicious. Best deal in town!

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!

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

The food here is great, and they have a lot of options. I love mango salsa. They have great taco's, and quesadilla's. They make it right up, and you eat, and are on your way. The service were they cook the food wonderful.

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
