A nice treat

Had a great dinner here the other night. It was cold and raining outside, so a hot meal of green chili was just the thing to have. Service was quick and good, all food was tasty.

Delicious, fresh, authentic Mexican fare with great hospitality and comfy setting. Rosa is the consummate host and always remembers what each customer typically orders - I don't know how she does it! Treat yourself!

On our way out of town from Bryce, we stopped at a Trading Post. The woman there recommended this restaurant after we told her we were on our way Kanab and would be there around lunch. We found the restaurant and were so pleased with the service, the food, and the family atmosphere. The food was so good and the... More

We were directed to Escobar's by our tour guide, Marjorie. It was a good choice. The food was delicious (although my hubby could have dealt with some jalapenos in his dish), and the family atmosphere was wonderful! Whenever we travel we look for local, family-owned restaurants, and this one did not disappoint!

I really like Mexican food and this place, which had been recommended to us in La Verkin was truly a disappointment in terms of culinary quality. Lots of lettuce, greesy frijoles and the chicken has no taste. No spices or typical exciting Mexican flavours.

We walked there from the Kanab Holiday Inn Express. My husband says it was about 6 blocks. I'm not sure it was that far, but it was a safe walk at night, and it was well worth the trouble. The food is great! Too bad there were no Margaritas becdause that was all that was missing.

The good, the people here are friendly and helpful. The food however was just ok. First basket of chips free, they brought extra salsa for us and that was nice. Enchillada's were just ok same as chile relleno, did not finish it.

We were looking for a dinner spot after a day of hiking and Escobars was a great choice. The food was very good and the service was great; they were very patient answering questions about the menu from a few of us who weren't very familiar with Mexican food.

Escobars is the best Mexican restaurant, not only in Kanab, but in the whole area. The service is excellent, the appetisers are tasty and the mains are outstanding and Big. If you ask the locals who eat a lot of Mexican, both at home and away, Escobars is definitely the place to go, for a little slice of Mexico.

Set in the small and quaint town of Kanab, UT, we were happy to find a Mexican restaurant. The food was average, nothing exciting. The service was good at this family run restaurant.
