Great Local Mexican Food

We were very pleased with the outdoor patio which was dog friendly and filled with interesting characters. The owner, Rosa, was delightful and the homemade food was excellent. We had a variety of enchiladas and left feeling sated and happy.

Great wait staff, great food, and by comparison to the other Mexican cuisine in Kanab, it is hands down the ONLY place that should be open!

The place was full when we stopped in on a hot evening. We got a nice table on the patio. The chips were warm and the salsa very flavorful, that's always a good start. Service was not real fast, but for Kanab it was probably above average. The food was fresh and served on a super hot plate but pretty... More

I have to say, quite a surprise! Everyone we polled suggested Escobars Restaurant and it was delicious! We did takeout at the end of a long, tiring day. Food was seasoned well and hit the spot. Staff was courteous and accommodating (one person i our party was too tired to come in to order). Love the fact that the restaurant... More

Had dinner at Escobars when visiting our daughter. We were greeted in a very friendly manner and seated immediately. The server placed taco chips and salsa on our table. The salsa was terrific. I am not sure if they make it themselves, but it was the best I have had. We ordered a beef burrito, two veggie burritos and a... More

This restaurant, apparently housed in a converted decades-old filling station, looks basic on approaching it. But the dining room is brightly decorated (and with a bit more originality than many places). The restrooms are very clean and modern. When we arrived there was a short queue, but tables were vacated soon after, and we were seated within 10 minutes. Service... More

When you arrive to a new town eager to unwind and see a sense of flavor, something enriching that sense of being somewhere new and unusual. how often is that feeling marred by intolerance and hatred. seeking nothing more than a meal, I endured catcalls from kitchen staff, nasty leers from waitresses, being ignored and even spoken about in Spanish...

Simply great. Lots of food. All of it great. The place was packed on Friday night in July. If you're visiting Kanaab you have got to eat here.

We saw this restaurant was #3 on Trip Advisor so we went there. It was great! Delicious salsa and great burritos and retried beans. It was very busy which says something, too. Still fast service and very friendly servers. Would highly recommend!

On a road trip from AZ, drove around the small town of Kanab trying to agree on where to eat. Escobar's was the choice... and it was a good choice. Their chips & salsa and enchiladas beat out my long time favorite at home. The chips were light & crisp. The enchiladas were good... you could taste the corn tortilla,... More
