I've been to Kip's in the past and remember it being good but it was AMAZING this time. I could probably eat there every day of the trip. Every kind of taco we tried was delicious. The Estaban and Pilewski are my favorite.

My husband & I enjoyed a dinner on the patio while in Pagosa on vacation for our 5 yr anniversary. Bacon wrapped Jalapeño poppers were amazing, the shrimp tacos were even better!! This would be a good spot to just hangout, drink, chat & snack on chips & salsa.

Love this place! Really good appetizers, great burgers with a variety of meats from which to choose. Fast service and a nice little bar area. We always like to sit outside when the weather is nice.

The three of us ate an early dinner here on a break from the hot springs. It was busy when we got there and decided to eat outside. They have a nice patio and it is covered which was a good thing because it had been raining off and on and then snowing. They had the patio heaters going so... More

Yummy sandwich and burgers. We tried the elk burgers. Delicious and the staff was super friendly. It was packed with people. But that usually means the food is good. It was!
