Best barbacoa tacos I’ve had. Place is tiny. Expect a wait... but it’s worth it. In Pagosa? Try this place.

We were told Kip's was a great place to eat in Pagosa to get real Pagosa flavor. It did not disappoint. Cute atmosphere and helpful waitstaff.

Awesome food! Go early as it is in a tiny house and seems to be super popular. We got various tacos and I had their cauliflower blue cheese soup which hit the spot perfectly after a day on the slopes. Good margaritas also.

Stopped because it was highly recommended on Trip Advisor. We were NOT disappointed. The salsa is fresh and very tasty. The tacos come with three available sauces that were all very tasty. Three huge tacos for about $10. Perfect!

Came here late one evening and tried the spicy shrimp tacos. They were delish! My friend had some tacos too and she loved them. Great service, but we didn't come at a busy time either.

Friendly and great food! Food served in "to-go" style fashion, as plates are all throw-away... but don't let that fool you! The service is great and the staff are friendly. It's a quaint, little, neighborhood hang-out! Hubby and I love it!

Kind of like a cali style food grill and pub. The vegi burger was great. Different beer to choose from. a lot of places in town have local beer. This place is a little small so get there early for dinner before everyone else.

The group of 6 friends met at Kip's after a day of skiing. It was a bit crowded but they were very accommodating. In fact, one of our friends has a severe shell-fish allergy and the kitchen went out of their way to make sure...More

Yes they do. While were there, some did have a dog with them. Once you are on the patio, you can exit and enter from the patio.

Yes, you can do any of the tacos as a Baja salad or the vegetarian tacos can come without the cheese too. We also offer a Portabello sandwich.
