Kips is a place the locals love to go. The food is always fresh and the wait staff is awesome! Enjoy the outdoor patio when the weather is nice! Shrimp tacos and a beer...yum!!!

Kips is always busy but always good. Expect a wait! Or plan off hours. But try the sauces. All are good!!

We ate here late on a weekday night. I had the pork tacos and they were delicious. My nephew had the green chili burger and he loved it. Everyone else enjoyed their meal too. The service was very friendly, we'll definitely be back.

Great food. Great happy hour. Very good service. Everyone was very friendly. This place is always packed. We sat on the patio and it was nice. Great weather. The only thing that wasn't good was the parking. Hard to find a space, but after driving around a couple of times, we found one.

Wow, exceptional flavor! I had the SANTA FE GREEN CHILE and the #8 TACOS DE BARBACOA (3 Tacos: Grilled and Marinated Pulled Pork in Flour Tortillas.) The family had other items which were equally good. I definitely recommend Kip's

We stop at Kip's every time we're in Pagosa Springs. We've only had there fish and shrimp tacos and they are great every time. The bar serves great cocktails as well.

We really enjoyed our stop at Kip's, given the crowd at lunch on a Saturday you could tell it was going to be good. My hubby and I shared an elk burger (a first for us) and it was delicious! All the others in our party had what looked to be very good and plentiful. I would recommend!

Best burger in Pagosa! So delicious! Great outdoor seating. I always come at lest once when I'm in town.

Excellent! What else is there to say? My only complaint was the wait for a table and the small dinning area. It is also noisy inside.

The street tacos were good. Certainly not overly spicy. My husband had the Elk Burger. Good beer, great service, great atmosphere.
