If you're a late night college aged person, this may be the perfect place for you. Wasn't for us. My husband was craving Mexican food. We sat outside on the roped in sidewalk. The overpriced serving of guacamole was small and bland. Not sure what the chips were. Maybe baked pita, though the seasoning on them was interesting. He had... More

I always visit the Magpie & Stump whenever I get the chance. The food is delicious and the portions are huge. You definitely get more than what you pay for. I always have the Gordon burrito and am never disappointed. They have great drink specials too. I was there on Wednesday when Dos Equis and Sol are only $4.25. Great... More

Really enjoyed the tacos here and the clients were all having fun. It seemed like a great place to go, just off of Banff avenue.

I visited this restaurant in Banff in early May while on a business trip. We had a group of about 8 people. The food was quite disappointing, the service mediocre. I suppose if you want Mexican food, you shouldn't go to this restaurant. There are so many other wonderful restaurants in Banff. This isn't one of them.

The set up is nice ... the Restaurant looks nice upon arrival but food was not good at all ... most of the review seems like artificial entries ...

We visited Magpie & Stump our first evening in Banff. We were actually looking for a different place when we stumbled upon it. We were not that hungry and it was getting late, so we decided that maybe sharing some nachos might be the way to go. Thoroughly enjoyed our tacos & nachos and refreshments. We had wonderful service and... More

Went here on the $3.50 Lime Margarita night. All ice and no salted rim. You definitely get what you pay for. Had the chicken tacos though which were good.

I was sombrero'd. Great Tuesday night deals on tacos. We ordered way too much. Don't get the gordita style as it's just nacho cheese dip in between the taco and soft tortilla. Tacos are great as they are. Great service too.
