While in Estes Park I really wanted to find a restaurant that served a Cubano sandwich. I looked at the online menu for Ed's and there it was, kind of: "Cuban Torta." Close enough. While not the best Cuban sandwich I have ever had it was quite good. The pork was lean and delicious but the bread seemed too dense... More

They serve Mexican food that is fresh and has a creative twist. We love Mexican food. This place is on our top 3 places for Mexican food anywhere. Definitely the best in Estes.

We headed up to Estes Park for the weekend. We arrived Friday afternoon so that we could eat at Ed's Cantina. We arrived in time for Happy Hour and it was Fajita Friday!!!! The margaritas were so tasty. We also ordered chips and salsa and Flautas. And then the Mixed Meat Fajitas. Everything was soooo good that we went back... More

We had dinner here and loved it! It was a cute place - clean and easy going. The food was great. I had the bison enchiladas and they were so good. I will gladly go back again and am a little bummed we didn't get one more dinner there before we left

The drink menu/margaritas are the best. Beer on tap from local breweries. The food is amazing. A good mixture for a family with kids. Plenty of healthy options to choose from. Local entertainment weekly. The bar staff is friendly and easy on the eyes ;) TV's in the bar for watching games. Well run establishment that cares about the customer.... More

I highly recommend the fried green beans! One of the best things I've ever eaten! Food was delicious and the drinks were too! We had a great time at Ed's!

The food was good, but not as good as it used to be. The margaritas were good. Our waitress was great.

We had the Nachos & Chicken Quesadilla for dinner with frozen Margaritas. The food was very good & served promptly. Brynn, our waitress was very sociable & courteous. A very enjoyable eating experience.

Waitress very attentive, drinks and chips/salsa kept filled. We chose from several selections. While they have their own bend on some dishes, all were satisfying. Atmosphere is relaxed and cordial. Easy place to chill and have a good meal for a reasonable amount.

We had lunch here with another couple over MLK weekend. Our friends love this restaurant and have eaten here many times. This is not a style of Mexican food I like, the food was not hot when served and was fairly pricey for lunch. We all ordered different burritos but I couldn't recommend any of them. We've eaten at Casa... More
