The river view isn't the best an kinda noisy. I ordered nAtchos and they were divine. My wife had a burger. Good was decent but not worth the money. Needs an update too.

Our waitress was wonderful! We weren't sure what we wanted to eat and she gave us some great tips. We started with the nachos with Bison. It was a huge plate of chips, loaded with cheese, sour cream, guacamole, jalapenos and bison (there is an extra charge for the bison). It had a lot of flavor. I had the bison... More

Great place! I had the bison enchiladas and they were excellent. I also had the avocado margarita which was surprisingly delicious. Our waitress was excellent and knew just what to recommend.

We were chatting with a local gentleman who fishing along the river walk. He recommended the fish taco's at Ed's. They were excellent. We also had nacho's with bison. Very good. They were very accommodating on changing and recommending a replacement sauce when I told them that I don't care for cilantro sauce. We were seated outside on the patio... More

We came in for dinner after a long day of hiking, you know those days. We spent the morning horseback riding and the afternoon hiking. We were all tired and very hungry. I had the carne asada torta. While it was big and filling it wasn't something I'd come back for. Worse than that the kids meals were terrible. They... More

Had an o.k.meal here-just not anything to get excited about . The bison tacos were served with a small portion of beans and rice-somehow wanted it to be a bit more daring.it wasn't . Chips and salsa are a separate purchase-again alright but not memorable. Go if you must but do not expect to be blown over .

Really good flavorful and fresh food and drinks. Beef chimi was the hit of the evening .... Second was the buffalo tacos. Margaritas were tasty too and they had a great beer selection. Very good and friendly service from the front door on. It was a beautiful day to sit out on the patio and the food and service matched... More

This restaurant is easy to get to and serves really good food. They have great Happy Hour specials, including great prices on their appetizers. You can park at the Visitor's Center and walk under the bridge to get to Ed's Cantina, only a short walking distance from the Visitor's Center.

I love the fajitas and margaritas at Ed's. It's not the most authentic setting, but what it lacks in ambiance, it makes up for in taste!

To make your vacation money go a little farther, have an early dinner here during happy hour. Margaritas were great, we shared plates of nachos and quest with chips as well as hot wings. Note- the hot wings are Extremely hot/spicy, not for the meek. We also had bison tacos which were served with feta cheese, unique and delicious! Outside... More
