Escobars was recommended by our hotel. We were pleasantly surprised to find this little restaurant serving the best chips and salsa we have had in awhile. The entrees ordered were the #2 plate ( burrito, enchilada and chili relleno w rice and beans)was terrific and very filling. The other entree ordered was a 2 taco plate with rice and beans... More

The menu has a great variety of items and can even cater to vegetarians/vegans. The staff and owners are fantastic and I feel like I am home when I go there.

A solid meal with less than solid service. Escobar's was our first meal upon arriving in Kanab. I won't begin to try and qualify myself as an expert on Mexican food, but I didn't expect to find any this far north of the border. The restaurant itself is small. I'd suggest sitting in a booth along the exterior walls or... More

When you can beat the crowd, Ecsobars is our family favorite. Rosa works her but off and runs a tight ship. Leo makes all dishes mouth watering.

We enjoyed our meal very much. The wait staff was friendly. Clearly everyone was family and they made us feel very welcome. Food has a home made taste. I am NOT an expert on Mexican food but I enjoyed the burrito with chicken, refried beans, lettuce, cheese and sour cream with an enchilada sauce on top. My husband really like... More

This a very busy restaurant but we'll worth the wait to be seated. Guacamole and salsa clearly authentic and made with love. Just tried this pork chimichanga and it's one of the tastiest I've ever had!

it's so rare that you stumble upon a place where you can see the owner and her family care so much about their food and service. We had to wait 15 minutes for a table but I certainly see why - best restaurant in Kanab. Loved my meal and only regretted not being in Kanab one more night so I... More

Our family visited Kanab in 2015 and was not at all impressed. Well we thought we'd give it another shot this past week. I have to agree with the other reviewer - not clear on how this is on the top 5. The service is horrific... beyond slow and not very courteous. If the food was at best mediocre. I... More
