After working at the Animas River Days for 12 hours, in the sun, my friend and I needed an easy dinner. This was near our hotel and we had passed it a couple of times so decided to check it out. So good! There was a line out the door and the parking lot was packed (always a good sign!),... More

We were craving some Mexican food and decided to give this a try. We had a short wait but it was worth it! Apparently there was a line because it's worth the wait! Loved everything we had!!

Hungry after a full 12 hours of driving through national parks and other assorted beauty, we went to Zia and were SO PLEASED!! Fresh, delicious food customized for you, and wildly affordable. Friendly service, great local brew, generous but not overwhelming portions. SO glad we stopped in.

Always a good fast meal in Durango. Go early for their daily specials. On the weekends, they have tamales which are very good. When we want to eat out after a long day outdoors, this is our go-to place. We like everything we have had there. You make your own tacos, burritos, or salad bowls just how you like it... More

Very good large size burritos and rice bowls. Assembly style you go down a counter selecting your ingredients. It can get busy at both locations during dinner and lunch the line will extend out the door. The best thing to do during peak hours is to order and pay online then just pick it up without waiting.

After hiking and skiing up to !3,500 feet with tons of gear, I came to Zia for refueling. I ordered the veggie burrito with grilled veggies: zucchini, corn, refried beans, guac. rice, lettuce, tomato, and cilantro. This burrito did the trick again. I sat at a counter and enjoyed a local beer. With tip, $11. Thanks.

We were in Durango for a soccer tournament--went at lunch time in between games and was super busy, but let me tell you each and every employee we came in contact with was friendly and helpful. They even asked the kids how they did in their games all the while working and not slowing things down. Very impressed. The food... More
