I love this Mexican restaurant. They use local, fresh food, which is always yummy. I can create my own burrito every time OR their daily specials are the bomb!! my boyfriend calls this place my "Manstriss" because I love it so much!! After an active day in Durango, this special restaurant will leave you feeling satisfied and happy.

This is a great place for lunch or dinner - counter style service but the food is great!! You get to customize your enchilladas or whatever you order - and the prices are very reasonable for the large portions. You must try them! They have another location south of town.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend and absolutely loved it. We've been to other placed similar to this, but we loved the glass bowls and real silverwear if you wanted to eat in the restaurant, the choice of veggies, the local produce, and the friendliness of the staff. It was busy, but we didn't feel rushed or have... More

I came here with a friend after a long bike ride. I ordered a fish burrito. It was a really great burrito. Not huge, but got the job done. The mango jalapeño salsa is very tasty with a small kick. They also have tamales that sounded good. I believe their chips are made in house. I highly recommend Zia's!!!!

We went twice. First time I had the fish burrito. It was huge. I got the fish tacos the second time. Both were excellent. Very little waiting time.

In 20 years of living in Durango few of the hundreds of restaurants get repeat business from me as they are mostly average, over priced and generic tourist focused establishments. Zia rocks it because of value (price), fresh food made in front of you, and a simple and quick place to fuel up. Eat and support local excellence!

We have eaten at Zia's many times and we like them so much we used them to cater our son's wedding. A bit out of the downtown main street area of Durango - not in the touristy area but the food is worth the short drive out of town. Great value and fresh delicious food - lots of choices! Really...

Something for everyone in our family! Baja fish tacos w mango chutney, beef steak enchiladas, chicken burrito, along w chips and fresh salsa & guac were just the ticket after our morning on the river! Loads of mouthwatering topping options fast and tasty! Friendly, reasonable, our best meal in Durango so far! Reusable to go bag - nice touch.

Stopped for lunch. I need really clean ingredients, no chemicals, hormones, etc. Got that and it was full of flavor and satisfying. Pleasant, helpful workers. I will go back with no hesitation.

I like Chiplote but would say this is even better as they have more options, more sauces and I think even their prices are less. The Baby Burrito is large enough for most people.
