Coming out of the mountains, this place was a beacon of hope. The drinks were wonderful and the food was even better. The staff was great with cranky kids and everyone left happy!

After a long day of hiking you need a great meal. Well...El Cid delivered. From chips and awesome salsa, to the fajitas, the quality and taste of this Mexican spot was A rated. Portions are quite large. Be mindful. Service was excellent.

We ate here several times during our 1 week stay at Evergreen Haus. The food was delicious & theres a small garden out back where we could watch about 6-8 hummingbirds at a time.
