We only ordered off of the happy hour menu. Taco's were $3 a piece...we tried all three and they were all yummy! Chips and salsa were tasty at $1. Margs/Beers were $3.50-$7. Our waitress Abby was friendly, helpful, and efficient!

Ed’s has a great Menu which is Mexican with Colorado influences. We’re been here a few times and the staff has always been great. This time I had their pork pozole which was spicy and delicious. Great happy hour from 3-5 everyday.
