Nido opened it's doors in Paonia, Colorado in June of 2019. Our menu is traditional Mexican cuisine with an Asian twist. Each menu item is uniquely created with fresh, organic ingredients that are local when possible.


The owner and operator, Chef Ed Vaughn, is an award winning chef who has owned several successful restaurants over the past few decades. He created Taco Bliss, a very popular food trailer in Paonia, 8 years ago. Recently, he merged the menu with Nido's, and now serves his renowned tacos in the restaurant instead of the Taco Bliss trailer. In addition to his delicious and original tacos, Nido serves a variety of fresh corn street tamales. His daughter, Katie, worked beside him in the trailer, and now his son, Caleb, cooks beside him at Nido.

We are currently providing take out only, but our patio is open for your enjoyment.
