Friendly service and a fun place to eat! I ate the green chili stuffed tacos (vegetarian style), my hubby ate the green chili open faced cheeseburger and our daughter ate a hamburger off the kids menu. We ordered the chips and salsa as an appetizer....More

Service was average, but the food here was delicious and a good amount for your money. The Diablo taco (a stuffed pepper in a taco) was really good. My best meal while visiting Pagosa.

The food at Kips is SO consistently delicious! I have had the Barbacoa tacos every time we are in Pagosa. They are the best. No competition.

Always a fun and quirky place to eat. It's always busy! Dine inside on out on patio. Nothing fancy here! Baja tacos are delicious, fresh and creative with ingredients. We enjoyed really good bloody Mary's, reasonably priced. Probably the most popular spot in Pagosa.

The people who work here were all really nice. The food was yummy, my sister who lives in town sent us here. I recommend the cheese stuffed chile tacos #3. Fabulous, as is the green chile smothered burger. You can't go wrong here!

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.
