Yummy!

We really enjoyed our dinners at Ed's Cantina, minus the mix-up over my husband's order. The waitress was very apologetic and delivered his correct order within a few minutes. So really no complaints. If you enjoy Mexican food, this place is a good fix. We were very satisfied.

Dinner was good with a wide variety on the menu. If you like game meats, the Bison Tacos were delicious. Burgers were good, but nothing exceptional that would bring us back for another. The ambience is good and location on the river is ideal.

My husband and I ate here May 2015 and it was disappointing. The salsa is supposed to have some form of the tomato, but theirs is a watery, tasteless concoction; even the chips were served cold. I am not sure where they got the recipe for my burrito, not I can tell you it is not Mexican.

Stopped in for lunch and found the food to be superior and the service ever better. My wife had Chicken/Avacado Tacos--fantastic taste. I had the Bison enchiladas--great taste. Our server error (Danielle) was extremely helpful and one of the best servers we have had in a long time. The ambience is wonderful. When in Estes go here-- you will be... More

Don't let the wait time deter you. The Southwest food is fesh & very tasty. Margaritas are wonderful...guacamole, chips & salsa are worth the trip. Outside seating on Fall River. Important to me...bathroom is extremely clean. Friendly & efficient staff. Parking lot small but public lots & street spots available. Prices reasonable. Recommended!

Many unique offerings. We tried the nachos with black beans and buffalo. Definitely a reorder. Crystal is a wonderful, attentive server, with great people skills. Visited three times.

Open mic night was a wonderful time to visit ~ it is held in the bar section so those of us wanting to dine, had no problem finding a table. The atmosphere is very nice, service left a lot to be desired. On several occasions, the food was a bit iffy, for example, we ordered chips & salsa ~ the... More

We were with a couple that visits Estes a lot and really knows the area. They highly recommended that we try Eds. We were not disappointed. The food was outstanding as was the service. We will be back next year. The Fish Tacos were some one the best we have had this side of Maui
