Best meal we had in Estes

Our family was up in Estes for a long (4 night) weekend. I love the city of Estes Park and the RMNP area as well. Absolutely beautiful. God's country! We rented a nice 2 bedroom condo on the river and the only disappointment on the trip was the quality of the food at the local restaurants... read more

This is a great place for breakfast...large portions. We had had dinner here as well. It is a busy place so you may have to wait. We have eaten here on several occasions. You will not be disappointed.

We tried Ed's for the first time and loved it. The food was hot, fresh and was delivered faster than any other eatery I've ever been to. I'd recommend the pork flautas and the 14er Burrito. It has steak, chorizo and bacon in it. Yum!

I love Ed's Cantina! It has a very casual and fun atmosphere. Try the cantina mule and the spicy carrot soup, you won't be disappointed!

My husband and I went to Ed's last night and was so excited to see new menu items. They have added numerous vegetarian items and new regular ones also. I tried the chicken avocado tacos with corn salsa. I guess they replaced the tequila lime tacos with these. I am so glad they did. These are excellent, will definitely get... More

They make their own margs here and don't use the bottled mix. The staff are really nice and the food was quick, hot and really tastey.

We had a great experience at Ed's Cantina. Their spin on Mexican food seemed very fresh, not as heavy as some. I had the Chicken & Avocado Tacos which were wonderful. They were served with an amazingly tasty corn side dish. The margarita was wonderful too! We will most certainly visit again.
