Very casual place with a great elk burger! We had a late nite supper and ordered shrimp tacos too . They were ok. They are proud of their tacos. We didn't like the plastic silverware to cut our jalapeño poppers! I have to admit they were tasty though.

I can not express how absolutely delicious the food there is. We always get the stuffed green chilies to start. My husband and I get the number 5, Esteban's special. Sooooo good. My son got the fish tacos last night, and he loved them. Get there early as it gets packed and the place is small.

We have been to Kip's twice. The food is out of this world. Prices are reasonable and the service is excellent. It is very casual. We loved it and I would highly recommend Kip's.

Food was outstanding. Service is great. But if you're looking for a place where you can actually have a conversation with the person you're with, this isn't your place. I'll go again though, just to get some more of their great food.

Went here for dinner and a couple of beers. Great food (I had the tacos) and they had both Ska and Riff Raff beer on tap. They also had live music. It was packed but it seemed like everyone there was able to get a seat.

Busy local spot. Food is amazing! We all offered from the "Baja Street Tacos" section. Mine was more of an enchilada. The Pilewski. It was fantastic! Server was Michelle. Incredibly helpful and knowledgeable. Great place!

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.
