House converted into restaurant. We ate there after skiing at Wolf Creek pass. It was a 45 minute wait for a table, but the drinks and food are great! Lively atmosphere, and waitress was a firecracker. Serves mainly tacos and burgers. I don't recommend the fish baja salad, but everyone else enjoyed their meal.

It's a tight fit, especially in the winter. The patio is open in the summer. It's still tight. Absolutely worth the squeeze. It's not just tacos, but if you start with the tacos, you may never order anything else. I strongly recommend the spicy shrimp tacos. The basic order is three. Stuff yourself or take the third one with you.... More

The food here is really good and they have specials they will tell you about when you sit down. It is very small inside but well worth the wait.

Would you go back again? Yes. Yes the question above is the most critical one you can ask about a restaurant or a hotel. Very Very small....So we went on a Friday night and were told we would have to wait 30 minutes. 5 minutes later we were seated. Service great. Food is very good. Not the best Mexican but... More

truly great food! Not just great but pretty healthy too. I had the fish tacos and they were light and full of flavor. The quac appetizer was outstanding and a great size portion. Everything was simple but done really well. Kips might be a locals spot but is a must try as a visitor too.

Kip's was really busy when I visited, but the employees were always helpful. The food was fantastic and I really enjoyed the drinks.

Go where the locals go! We had a long wait but it was well worth it. Margaritas on the porch and tacos at the table.

This is a tiny little place, packed. Looks like they have great patio for warmer weather. We finally got a table, great tacos. I got barbacoa, my husband got fish. They serve beer from Riff Raff Brewery, my new favorite beer. We bought a jar of their hot sauce to take home. Lots of locals were there. Interesting decor, great... More
