This was the best Mexican food I’ve ever had in all my travels. Chips and salsa were amazing. I ordered the Carne Asada with added Grilled Shrimp. It was incredible. The Escobar family who were their on site were so attentive and the restaurant was...packed including with locals. I can see why this restaurant receives such great reviews!More

This place is extremely busy - because the menu is extensive and the food is good. It is always busy and some tables can be small or crowded next to others, but it is not an uncomfortable atmosphere. Everyone takes it in stride . You...will probably wait, we have never walked in any of the times we have tried, but it is worth it. Once you are seated the food comes promptly (but not thrown together) and the servers are efficient. Easy to find on the main drag of town with plenty of parking.More

Came recommended by our guide from Dreamland Tours across the street. It was very busy but very welcoming and friendly. Chips and salsa to start for free. Meal was great and service was excellent.

We just visited Zion National Park and stayed one night in Kanab. Escobars was close to our Hotel and highly recommended by the Front Desk Woman - and on a Sunday night - was open. Open and packed - so busy we ordered to go...after a busy day - and oh la la. Marvelous Chile Verde/Colorado - and my wife had the Chili Relenno and both were as good as we have ever had. Being from San Diego - and frequent visitors to Mexico - that is saying something. BRAVO AMIGOS.More

It was very busy and closed on Tuesday and Saturday. I would get the carne asada platter again. We also got a cheese, and a chicken enchilada. They weren't the best. The chips and salsa were very good.

Would go again - had to wait a little while to get seated but was worth it. Good food, fast service. Decent pricing! Only downside is closed Saturday’s.

Mexican food in the classic Mexican restaurant sense, and done very well. While you won’t find a ton of extraordinarily authentic food here, Escobar’s menu of tortas, burritos, chimichangas, and quesadillas, among other fare hits the spot in all the right ways after a day...spent hiking in the nearby parks. The staff was very welcoming and friendly, the food was piping hot and flavorful, and the portions generous. We’ll definitely stop by again next time we’re down that way.More

This is a quaint little restaurant that serves up great Mexican food! It’s family owned and operated and has been for the last 25 years! It’s capacity inside is maybe a 100. The hostess was also our server. Very cute, darling, and funny. We will...stopping there every time we are passing through.More

We were so tired after touring all day and wanted something quick. Our guide Mike from Dreamland Safari recommended this restaurant. We both had taco's, simple and good. Quick service. Clean restaurant. In and out.
