This tapas type bar & grill has delicious food and a large cocktail menu. We dined in because the patio was full. Whenever we are in Pagosa, this restaurant seems to always be busy.

I happened upon this little place by chance, and felt right at home. The staff and customers were welcoming. I had the soft tacos and a micro brew. Traveling solo ( no, Hope was not with me) it is sometimes hard to find places that are relaxing. Anyway, nothing fancy just good comfort food and nice people.

I had a smothered burger for dinner there. It was okay--would've been much better if the store bought shredded cheese had melted and if it had been served on a real plate instead of a disposable one.

Kips has a variety of good food. We ate on the patio and enjoyed the last of the summer. The staff looked like they were enjoying it as well.
