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.

I expect high prices in Estes. But terrible food for a high price is not expected. The green chile was bland at best. The Chile relleno was covered by a red tasteless sauce that probably doubled for enchilada sauce. Taquito's were Xtreme Manufacturing and S. Salsa was basically tomato paste with tons of cumin added. Save yourself the pain.

One star off due to spicy salsa. My kids couldn't eat it. We asked to try the cheese dip, they brought it, but it was too warm and we had to blow in it for our 4 year old and by then we needed to just order and eat. Also, removed another star for price. Especially the milk. Over $3... More

We chose this Mexican restaurant for a night out while staying in Estes Park. What a super find! Authentic recipes with first rate ingredients and great flavor. Menu is very extensive. If you're looking for "corporate Mexican" this is not for you. If you are, however, looking for tasty food served quickly and with a smile, this is the place... More

Being from Oklahoma we are picky when our brand of texmex is messed with. This place was very much like Mexican food back home, which we loved, and it had some cool differences! I had some amazing fish tacos and he had enchiladas. Both delicious and believe it or not my leftovers were great the next day at lunch as... More

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
