Description: Presenting freshly made unique American items and old favorite Mexican dishes in a casual and comfortable setting. We're located in the picturesque mountain setting of Estes Park, Colorado just next to Rocky Mountain National Park. Whether you're visiting Estes Park on vacation, or a long-time local, Grumpy Gringo is sure to please. With an extensive menu, including a great kid's menu, there's something for everybody in your party. We've been serving up the very best food for years here in Estes Park. We have added a great list of Colorado boutique beers this year to compliment our outstanding and popular Margaritas.

My children, grandchildren and I headed to Rocky Mountain National Park on Labor Day Monday. We realized the Park would be packed, and it was. After hiking and observing a large herd of elk, including babies (the highlight of our day), it was time to find some lunch. The Grumpy Gringo has a sign west of Loveland, and I'd remarked as we passed it that I liked the name! My son said they'd been there once before, so our discussion about lunch returned to the Grumpy Gringo. We reasoned that Estes would be very busy, but perhaps the Grumpy Gringo (heading east out of town) would be less busy - and it was, plus it was right on our way home. For that reason, it was perfect. We were able to walk right in (early afternoon). The bright white walls look nice, it gives a clean appearance. We were seated in a round booth, perfect for the 5 of us (3 adults, one toddler, one infant). We got a highchair immediately, and to my surprise, our waiter took our orders w/o writing anything down. Impressive! We enjoyed the chips and salsa, tho it wasn't the best salsa ever (we all love our chips and salsa). The food was also quick, and it was filling - not the best nor the worst Mexican food we'd ever had. I had a lighter plate, small enchilada, beans, rice, just enough food for me. The rice was somewhat dry. (We didn't have liquor or dessert, and we saw no scenic view.) But we were heading home, we'd eaten, the babies were tired. The Grumpy Gringo was just what we needed at that time. We mostly appreciated their location with our two tired babies.

We have eaten at Grumpy Gringo both time we visited Estes Park. Both times we had a great dinner. I tried one of the "lighter" entrees. Just about the right amount! Especially after eating all the chips and salsa:-)

We were in Estes Park in August for a weeks stay. While there we decided to have some good Mexican food. We had been told about Grumply Gringo and how good the food was, we were not disappointed. Lots of choices, lots of food for your dollar, and what was really great was the food itself. The resturant was very clean and the atmoshere was charming. Over the week we dined there several times and always left full happy. This is a good place to eat for everyone.
