I love, love , love the fish tacos. What else can I say, the order contains two large tacos and I always order only one. I have Mexican "tartar sauce' which is much like 1000 Island dressing. You get some chips and can get beans...More

I felt the food was bland. It also didn't help that my tacos were cold. My husband's burrito was pretty good. Price was very reasonable. Atmosphere was nice, restaurant was clean.

This place is way overrated! The nachos looked and tasted like canned dog food. The drinks were watered down. I have heard bad things about this phony Mexican restaurant but I didn't listen. The place was supposedly better with previous owners. And wow! The attitude...More

was actually surprised at how good this was...way better than the other "Smoked Pepper" guys. I'd for sure go there again. I think they had 2 locations, one in town, and one on the way to Pagosa.

The food was crazy cheap and massive portions! 3 of us ate for $18 and absolutely loved our food! Also, BEST GUACAMOLE EVER. There are so many options that anyone can eat here and leave happy. There were tons of healthy options and vegetarian+vegan options....More

Since it was raining we walked here for lunch and tried one of their salads with everything on it. We really enjoyed it and would love to go back sometime.

We arrived in Durango late and no one wanted to go out. The hotel clerk recommended Zia Taqueria which was in walking distance of the hotel. It's kind of like Chipotle but so much better in every way. All of their meats are very tasty....More

Zia gets very crowded so it's best to get there early! All the food is good, one of my favorites is the salad bowl!

Had dinner here. Burrito was good, I like'd their pull'd pork. Their wahoo fish tacos were good also. Had their own root beer and it was very good. Would try again!
