Ask for the vegan menu! - Edit

I love that they have an all vegan menu!! The stuffed poblano with vegan mole blanco is so so so delicious. Best vegan option in Estes Park probably.

Loved it! - Edit

How awesome that Ed’s has a separate all-vegan menu! We had chips/guacamole, veggie burrito, and avocado veggie wrap stuffed with quinoa/black bean burger. We were so happy and full! Enjoy!

Great vegan Mexican options! - Edit

Ed's Cantina is awesome. They now have a separate vegan menu (ask for it at the hostess station) with TONS of stuff on it and the food here is a lot better than other Mexican/casual options in town (and most other Mexican places, period!) Wish I could give even more stars but 4 is the highest for a veggie-friendly restaurant.

At most Mexican restaurants, veggie burritos are a blah afterthought and generally just kind of "ok" -- but at Ed's, the veggie burrito (vegan without the cheese) is elevated to something really special.

The vegetables are perfectly seasoned and cooked just right with tender squash and sauteed spinach that is tender but still bright green and the black beans and rice are delicious. The whole 'rito comes with some home-made chips and guacamole.

The "mole blanco" (traditional mole spices but without chicken stock or dairy) is a cashew-based cheesy sauce that goes great on the vegan nachos. It's slightly sweet but has a nice spice. Speaking of spices, they have hot-sauces you can add that range from the normal to tear-inducing.

The only downside at Ed's is that the ridiculously good chips and home-made salsa are not complimentary. (So tasty in fact that our waitress was a sweet-heart and we got some extra to take home!) -- they cost about $2.

... That's probably a good thing though.... because we could have eaten our weight in that alone!

Pros: Fantastic Mexican food, lots of vegan options, homemade salsa

Cons: chips and salsa not free
