We've known about Kip's but didn't venture there until this month. Great fresh tacos!! Large party of 7. I think everyone ordered something different and everyone was pleased with their selection. Will be eating here again soon!!

Sitting outside in the summer is nice, but the inside is very cramped. The food: we had the tacos. The ingredients seemed fresh, but very un-flavorful. The sauces that were provided were not to our liking. Some people like the place, but for us, it is near the bottom of the list.

This was a busy spot for lunch. We had a good experience with the food and atmosphere. The service was a bit slow but we didn't mind the break from driving. It is primarily a Mexican style spot.

Went to this restaurant on a recommendation. Offered a lot of street tacos. Food was average. Queso was so, so.

My husband and I each had tacos (#4 and #2 respectively). The meals were very good and following the recommendation of other reviews we got here early. At 5:30 it was filled inside, but thankfully warm enough with one heater going to sit outside. Excellent quality and value.

We followed TR advice and stopped at this friendly place during our road trip through SW Colorado. The atmosphere was bright and friendly and the wait staff super attentive. We ordered a fish taco plate that was delicious. I believe their foods are locally sourced and certainly were very healthy. The margarita was delightful, too. My wife enjoyed her shrimp... More

The food is fantastic!!!! Fried salmon and tacos are off the charts. Too it with sweet potato fries. We go at least once every year.

Kip's is place we take friends and family for lunch or dinner. Like eating on the patio. It can get a little crowded inside but the food is worth it.

Although I must say this is more of a sports bar and was rather noisy during lunch, the food was delicious. The different kinds of tacos were great, the sandwiches were very good; the packaged chips were kind of disappointing. The salsa was the best ever. Absolutely out of this world. Very good food and service at a reasonable price.

Tasty shrimp tacos and Key Lime pie. All very pleasing to the palate. Got to watch World Series. Service was good. Felt right at home.
