We make a point to go to Ed's every time we're in Estes Park. Good food, great margaritas (you must try the avocado margarita and the spicy one too!) and fun atmosphere. The outdoor seating area is great too!More

Service was enthusiastic and excellent. Food was delicious. Fantastic fajitas with plenty of the sides. Guacamole needed just a little more salt. Definitely would return and recommend.

Don't trust the reviews of anyone claiming that this is good Mexican food because it isn't. $47 for two people with no alcohol and the food was pitiful.

It was hardly busy but the service was slow. Interesting flavorful food choices-slow getting it though if you are on any sort of lunch-hour you may want to go elsewhere. They were pleasant but this place is pricy & over-hyped.

We stopped in here for lunch after exploring Estes Park. It was busy which seemed promising. It also seemed like maybe a family-run place. The menu was fairly broad with many vegetarian options. The food was, well, fair. My wife was excited to order a...More

Had a great lunch. They were quite busy. Enjoyed my fish tacos! My husband had enchiladas that were also tasty. It was worth the 10 minute wait!
