Lots of Flavor

Deep fried taco! Yummy! Not sure what kind of cheese they put on the black beans but it was very good. We also had some cheese and onion enchilladas smoothered in green chili. That was very good too. They have a lovely location right on the river and very nice service.

Stopped here for dinner while in town. Both kids like their kids meals. I got the nachos with carnitas and they were great. Wife loved her taco salad. Salsa had some kick. No complaints and we really like it. Nishan was our server and was attentive and courteous.

We had not visited Casa Grande for more than a year. We first sensed that their prices were somewhat higher. I ordered carnitas and my wife had an enchilada plate. There have definitely been changes, although we always liked Casa Grande, we now think it is really great - the quality of both the food and presentation is much improved.... More

We went to Casa Grande right as it opened for lunch on a Saturday. We were seated right away in the dining room with the large windows looking over the river. (It's large place with at least one other dining room and a bar area.) The best thing about our visit was our server. I don't remember his name, but... More

My husband and I were in Estes Park and decided to try this restaurant based on the decor and location. Really happy we did. We went for a late lunch on Valentine's and were seated almost immediately. The complimentary chips and salsa were nice. As for meals, my husband had the chicken fiesta salad he really liked and I had... More

Right on the river walk, next to the outdoor skating rink in winter, Casa Grande offers "American" Mexican food + some interesting regional Mexican dishes of high quality. Try the Carne Asada or Carnitas. Fajitas were yummy, too! Lovely views of the river and outdoor summer seating--great ambiance!

We made reservations for 6:45, after church on Christmas Eve. Got there at 6:40 and they were closed. No note on the door, no phone call.

We stopped in here on our way back home from RMNP. Great selection of good Mexican food. We had the chilaquiles and enchiladas montadas, both good. The enchiladas montadas could have been spicier, but I can understand them turning down the heat for the HEAVY tourist traffic in Estes Park. The refried beans were a little off, but may have...

After being in the car for 3 hours we were ready to kick back and relax so we went to Casa Grande for happy hour. We sat at the bar and had the house wine and house margaritas. Not outstanding, but typical for house drinks. The interaction with Miguel, our bartender was nice and his Tio, the owner, was very... More
