“Decent but not great”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Took the family here based on the stellar reviews on Tripadvisor. I have to say that we were underwhelmed. The concept is the same as Chipotle or Freebirds, but honestly not as good. We ordered a quesadilla, a couple burritos and the Super Nacho Libre. Quesadillas were very good. Burritos were decent and the "super" nachos were tiny and expensive ($10 bucks). Folks were friendly and the line was to the door, which ended up being about a 10 minute wait (not bad for a Saturday night). We haven't tried any other restaurants in Durango, so we'll probably try other places versus returning here.

“Chipotle knockoff? Yes, but better!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014 via mobile

Very reasonably priced. We were stunned by the line at 1:30, which moved a bit slowly--thus only 4 instead of 5 stars. Prices are great, menu is HUGE (which slows things down). Green chile pork was the best. If you need a quick meal, you will glad you tried Zia.

“Local version of Chipolte Mexican Grill”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

The food was tasty and healthy. Service was quick. Food is prepared (similar style to Chipolte chain), as you progress down a cafeteria type line and make your choices and preferences, with the sever. You are eating well in less than 10 minutes! Warning: the line can be long because this place is so popular. Avoid rush hour dining or be prepared to wait an extra minute to two.
