“Stuffed on small budget!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 9, 2012

As anyone in Kanab where you should go to get Mexican food and they'll send you to Escobars - and with good reason! Free chips and fresh salsa (not that store-bought stuff) and the prices were super cheap. The food tasted authentic (to us) and was extremely generously portioned. I would suggest skipping an appetizer. ;-) Definitely give Escobars' a try if you're in Kanab!

“Pretty good food, not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

We ate dinner from Escobar's and it was pretty good. I had enchiladas and a chile relleno which were good. The chile was just okay. My husband had the carne esada which was pretty overdone and tough. The total was about 24 dollars.

“If Escobars is closed, DON'T go to Nedras!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

My husband has eaten here a couple times on business, and it's been consistently tasty. They are apparently closed on Saturday's?? So, we went to Nedras instead. BIG mistake. I would suggest skipping Mexican if Escobars is closed, while in Kanab.

Was very dissapointed in this meal. Everyone at my table shared their entrees and came to the same conclusion....bland, bland and bland.

“Mexican food in Utah?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

The food here is as good as any mexican restaurant outside of Mexico. Tasty, generous and well spiced ( by american standards} meals are the norm here. Well worth the time and price. Try the enchilladas and burritos. They were fabulous.
