My wife and I enjoyed lunch. It was our first stop. We both enjoyed the veggie nachos with guacamole. The atmosphere was fun and family friendly. The salsa was excellent

Very good salsa. Hand made guacamole. My favorite hot sauce on the table. (Horsetooth). The bison enchiladas are great. Oh yeah, good margaritas.

Menu somewhat different from the typical Mexican restaurant with good options. Even though it was packed, the waitress took time to talk to customers, share opinions and smile.

Very nice staff and great food. Had the bison tacos and bison enchiladas. Both were really good! Nothing fancy, but a nice place to grab a cocktail and some really good Mexican food.

Ed's has a slightly different menu than most Mexican restaurants, but we stuck with the more traditional dishes and they were good. Must be one of the better places in Estes Park because many of the customers were locals.

Visited here on the advice of my hotel clerk and was not disappointed at all!! I had a locally brewed beer, chips & queso, and a chimichanga. Everything was delicious! Friendly service & fun atmosphere!

Three adults shared a Fajita for Two and it... More

The open mic night was good, the food not so much. Cool atmosphere. Not really much more that I can say.
