Burrito (14er) was better than expected. Good flavor and plenty of steak pieces. Mess burger very good. Go during happy hour for cheap drinks and tacos. Didn't make happy hour but will try next time since tacos are at a good discount then.

I had the Bison tacos and they were delish! The queso....not so much, you could have sipped it through a coffee stirrer it was so thin. Great Margarita's!

After hiking all day this restaurant is perfect- portion sizes are not crazy large but just enough- and food is fresh and not greasy or heavy. Atmosphere works well with kids and there are some options for the picky kids too! They take reservations so call ahead and avoid waiting!

This is a great place to have lunch. We enjoyed fantastic fish tacos and burgers. Service was good as well.

The food was good, but the staff are young and a bit inexperienced. The place was also pretty dirty. Maybe if you're looking for more of a bar type atmosphere than a restaurant this place would be good.

Ate at Estes Park with a large group of family age 9 to 50 and we all over it. Fast friendly service and reasonable prices. The fish tacos were outstanding, bison tacos spicy but good, and guacamole fresh and tasty. Highly recommend

Portions were small, 2 margaritas were $20 and I've never been to a Mexican ever, and I've been to ALOT, where you didn't get free chips and salsa. If this was the highest rated Mexican restaurant on trip advisor I shutter how the other ones are...

We always have at least one meal at Ed’s Cantina when visiting Este Park. You are guaranteed good Mexican food, fast, friendly and attentive service. Parking is sometimes difficult to find in the summer, but there is a lot across the street or wherever you can find a spot. To avoid a long wait, get an early lunch or dinner... More
