Estes Park Food Hop #1: Ed's Cantina

390 E Elkhorn Ave
Estes Park, CO 80517

Ed's Cantina greets on your way into downtown Estes Park, CO, the gateway to the Rocky Mountains. This is the only restaurant open downtown in the middle of October, and is a reliable "late night" pick. I had the fish tacos with rice and beans. The cucumber coleslaw with spicy cilantro was the highlight of the meal. This Food Hop is one you may need in your back pocket if you plan on eating in Estes Park after 8pm. If you can afford the Stanley Hotel, however, head on up the hill and Hop past this stop.


  1. How did the rest of the food look? Like was it Moe's/Salsarita's style or was it more like The Mission?

  2. Thanks for commenting:) To me it was similar to a typical american mexican meal. It was not as unique and fresh tasting as The Mission.

    For all of those who do not know The Mission is a mexican restaurant in Syracuse, NY that has unique twists to their mexican dishes with plantains and yucca potatoes.
