We had a great experience here! We would have to attribute much of that to our Incredible Server, Cassie. Not often you find such professional and attentive wait staff in anything other than a 5 Star restaurant. She would do well anywhere, we are just grateful she was here, Made our meal and time here extra special. She was cool,... More

My husband and I visited Ed's and had a table in the back with a river walk view. I had the veggie burrito and my husband had the bison burrito. Both were delicious. Pork chili sauce and guacamole were both homemade and standouts of the meal. Would definitely go again

A friend and I had dinner at Ed's. Excellent Mexican fare and great service. I was very happy with the amount of food and it tasted great. Special small touches make the experience worth it. For example, instead of just serving water in a normal pitcher at the table they re-use empty tequila bottles at the table for an added... More

I was traveling alone in Estes, so wanted a place that I could sit at the bar. This place had good beer and the food was fine, but it was bright. There was very little ambiance, so I did not stay long. But, the service and food was fine. I had the carne asada. It was okay, the sides were... More

This is, hands down, our favorite restaurant in Estes Park. Locally-sourced, fresh and delicious. Service is great and the outdoor seating is awesome. Very reasonably priced. Really great drinks as well. Must try the avocado margarita, to die for!

Some months ago we had a disappointing experience here when we tried a menu item, which we later learned was an "experiment" gone wrong. After my negative review, we were contacted by the management, who asked us to come back with a most generous gift card. We finally were able to return last week and our lunch was great. We... More

A popular and time-tested restaurant from what I hear. We lucked out choosing this place and not knowing it's local reputation.

Salsa & queso were very good! It was happy hour so I enjoyed $5 nachos and others enjoyed the bison and chicken nachos. My husband had the Cuban sandwich and said he would rate it 4/5 stars. Good music and cute little place.

We come to Ed's Cantina every time we come to Estes Park. We have made 6 trips and Ed's has always been a dependable place to eat. They are a cantina but they have good selection of food not just Mexican. The servings are generous.
