Love Ed's! Anytime we're in Estes Park we stop here. Their margaritas are delicious as well as their corn salsa! I'm getting hungry just thinking about going there :)

The server was very good. We had a delicious meal. Chicken, jalapeño, cheese Chimichanga had just the right amount of spice. Burrito was also very good. Good local selection of beer too!

Five of us visited for lunch and they have a great menu full of delicious Mexican food! They have a bar area too for football games to watch which is where we were seated. I had the steak fajitas which were plentiful and yummy! Ed's is on the very South East of town as you come into Estes Park but... More

We stopped in for lunch and we delighted by their chicken mole burritos and the fish taco! The carnitas burrito smothered in cheese was not on the same level but still very good

Good tasting food. Quick service, friendly enough. Convenient location. The water was awful. The food was not greasy which was nice.

We stopped into to Ed's on a very busy Saturday night, but were able to sit at the bar without a wait. The food was great, and the margaritas were even better. It was a fun spot for people watching. I didn't have time to go back during my time in Estes Park, but if I'm ever in the area,... More

My husband and I stayed in Estes Park for our honeymoon and stumbled across Ed's on our first night for dinner, we ended up going back again 2 nights later. We loved it! Great food, drinks and staff!

We stopper here for dinner on our way to stargazing at RMNP. The burgers were fantastic, and I really enjoyed the fried green beans. Their queso was kind of mediocre. The staff was very friendly, and the bar had a decent selection.

Thank Amber T
