Where do we go when we want just plain ole’ GOOD, home-cooked, authentic Mexican fare that won’t break the bank? We go see Rosa and her family at Escobar’s Mexican Restaurant!
This place is a staple in Kanab, truly a locals kinda place. And it is only a one-block walk from the Western Star Bungalow! Bonus!
John likes the a la carte tostada, small and simple. I love the chicken fajitas, lots of food! I usually take some home.
But the best – is the salsa and warm chips! Love, love their salsa. Comes to your table while you wait for your order. I could put it on everything!
Inside and outside dining. Come early if you are there in the summer. The lines get long sometimes.
But – (Yes, there is a “but”…) you have to keep their untraditional hours and calendar in mind.
The Escobar family worships on Saturday, so the restaurant is closed on Saturday but open on Sunday. (Slightly different than lot’s of our other local businesses, who close on Sunday.) Escobar’s is also closed on Tuesdays.
If you visit Kanab in the winter, you may miss out on Escobar’s altogether as the family heads back to Mexico for most of December and January. (See, I told you it’s real traditional Mexican food.)
We REALLY miss them when they are gone. There is always a little Facebook flurry on the local Kanab page when we find out what day Escobar’s reopens in January!
