good food, good service, located east of down town. The restaurant is kind of tired and could use some updating. Typically busy.

Ed's Cantina has been a local and tourist favorite for around 30 years. We have been going there for all those years. Lots of great Mexican food, margaritas, and memories. Sad to say the food has declined to below average as the prices have gone...More

Wandered into this restaurant without checking TripAdvisor reviews (because of convenient downtown Estes Park parking across the street), and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and quantity of food.
