Great little place

Escobars is one of our "go to" places in Kanab. The food is great and so is the service. The friendliness of the staff makes you welcome and comfortable. Everything we have tried here over the years has been great. Order your favorite dish and you won't be disappointed.

My family had dinner here on a busy Friday night. We expected a wait and was told it would be 15-20 minutes. After waiting 25 minutes (7:35pm), I sent my son in to check on how much longer we would have to wait. He came back saying the wait would be 20 more minutes. We decided that we didn't want... More

We all enjoyed our food a lot. This is what a Mexican restaurant should be - good food in a no frills place with cheap prices. There was a 20 minute wait but that seems to be typical. The locals come here also. Wonderful choice.

Really excellent Mexican food. The horchata is really unique in my experience. I think it must be from scratch (rather than a mix) and they might put fresh nutmeg in it?? Anyways, it was delicious. I also got a shredded beef taco and a bean and cheese burrito, thinking that two small things would be just right that evening. But,... More

Escobar's has a great selection of food items which come in good sized portions. They have clean restrooms, but very limited seating. Go early to get a seat. If you have to wait it is worth it.

The meal was good-we had chili relleno and a chicken tostada, both very good and generous portions. What really was distinctive was the homemade salsa served with the chips, best we have ever had. Tasty, adequate heat and addictive.

It's small and busy, but the line moves fast, the food is very good and ample, and the owner manages and serves with a good sense of humor.

If you like Mexican food, this is the right plan. Mexican family owned restaurant, cheap, fast and friendly. Most of the people on the restaurant are locals. The food is really tasty
