We had lunch here with another couple over MLK weekend. Our friends love this restaurant and have eaten here many times. This is not a style of Mexican food I like, the food was not hot when served and was fairly pricey for lunch. We all ordered different burritos but I couldn't recommend any of them. We've eaten at Casa... More

This food sated us after a long walk but didn't really seem special enough for some of the prices. I wouldn't go back.

When looking for a location to hold 55 people in a private room with the ability to show a slideshow, Ed's Cantina was really the only restaurant option in town. Having to plan a rehearsal dinner from afar without seeing the restaurant, I was a little nervous. But Crystal was great to work with and very accommodating. The venue comfortably... More

We visited on New Year's Eve. We had dined there once before & really enjoyed it so decided to check it out again! It was as I remembered- food was great, drinks were great, as well as the service. I definitely recommend rating here!

the burger and the fish tacos are great! We also had the potato and poblano soup which was delicious! The avocado margarita is a must!

We had a late lunch upon arriving in Estes Park and this was a great place to have it! The atmosphere was pleasant and we sat in the back area; the front is a sports bar. The restaurant borders the Fall River and the walking trail. There is a patio in the back that would be perfect for warm weather!... More

This place looked really nice. It was not peak season, so we thought we would try it. The food was good, however the service was terrible it took over 2 hours to eat dinner and there was only two of us.

This is our go to place in Estes. Their Ed's margaritas are good but can be too sweet for some folks. We just tried the avocado margarita which was blended but surprisedly really good and not as sweet as the original.

Fresh, original Mexican food with lots of seating. There's a bar side for people who want to watch sports on the big-screen TVs, and there's another side with clever seating arrangements to allow big groups, couples, families, or any other size group. The staff was knowledgeable, accommodating, and attentive, and the food was fresh and served very quickly.

Thank JSSKansas
