Food was tasty

The place was super busy with about a 45-50 minute wait. By the time we sat down, we were starving. Chips and salsa were not included in the meal. So we ordered them, since everyone was so hungry. But they were reasonably priced and the salsa was terrific. I loved the quesadillas, which were... read more

Ate at midday- our whole family loved the food! Chicken fajitas, burritos and chicken fingers for the kids. Drinks were stiff and perfect!

Great family restaurant. The food is excellent, and very reasonably priced for the location. You may have a wait, but it is definitely worth it. They have a bar area, dining room, and outdoor seating.

We had a very nice lunch with a very good selection of tacos and beers! The avocado hummus was very tasty and spicey! The service was very attentive. It appeared to be a very good place for families with children, too!

We were told to go here by the locals. The food was good. I really wished that the black bean spinach enchiladas had sauce over the top like enchiladas have. They were dry but still the flavor was good. You have to pay for each basket of chips as an appetizer and I don't think that is cool. Out waiter... More

We loved it so much we went back the second night. Jessica was our server and we asked for her again the second night. She made our experience fantastic. The food is incredibly delicious. The atmosphere is great. Right on the river. Loved it.

A friend who used to live in Estes Park recommended this place to us because she said she liked the food and they had excellent nachos. It was late and we ended up ordering chicken fajitas and chips and salsa instead. I have to say that the fajitas were great and the chips and salsa were some of the best... More

Went to Ed's with my family while on vacation. Very busy and a good, festive atmosphere. We sat on the back patio which was actually very nice with its shade, view of the river/creek and the sound of flowing water. Service was good but food was just ok - one of those meals that while not bad, you can barely... More

My husband and I ate here for lunch twice during our late May visit to Estes Park. This was by far our favorite restaurant in town. Lots of great choices on their menu and good drink choices as well. The food was fresh and delicious and some of the best Mexican that we've had. The service was very good both... More

What better way to end a day of hiking in RMNP then with a happy hour margarita from Ed's! They had a great selection of local microbrews and some creative signature drinks. We didn't try much off the menu, but chips, guacamole, queso, and salsa were delicious.
