Kips is in a quaint little old house on Pagosa’s main street.  The place has a cool and funky ski-bum atmosphere – it’s owned by some ski-patrol and river-rafter types.

They serve $7 burgers (or buffalo or elk for $9), plus a green chili (very hot), 10 different soft flour tacos ($8-$11), and other munchies like chips, salsa, roasted green chiles, and some great hot dogs.  Try the Spicy Shrimp Tacos or the Tacos Barbacoa (tasty pulled pork)  and maybe add a splash of their house-made, thermo-nuclear habanero sauce.  Very friendly service.

Kip’s has small-but-comfortable bar that’s always busy.  Micro-brew pints are $4.50 and their standard, full-pint margarita on the rocks is only $6.00.  PBR is $2.50 at Happy Hour.  This joint is popular with the locals.

The shady side patio attracts a crowd in the warmer months.  There are only 10-12 tables inside, so Kip’s can be very busy at peak times.  Coming early or late is not a bad idea during the peak tourist seasons.  If you’re looking for refreshment after a day on the slopes, Happy Hour is from 3-6.  Open till 10 pm, later than most places in Pagosa.
