I came to town to visit Mom and she knows my love for Mexican food. This was her recommendation and it was spot on. The spinach enchiladas were excellent!

I grew up in Los Angeles so I have deep experience with "Mexican" food. As a recent transplant to Denver, new friends gave this restaurant a strong recommendation as the best Mexican restaurant in the area. Unfortunately, there is a distinction between authentic Mexican fare and a Mexican American meal. If you are looking for a solid Mexican American food... More

I love the atmosphere here! It's very authentic feeling... the food was not the best... but it was ok. Definitely better atmosphere, than food. The staff was very nice, and almost too attentive, but. I can forgive that... Overall, it's pretty good. You have to try the Chili Rellenos!

I visited my grandfather in Aurora for 2 weeks and I'm pretty sure we ate here at least 5 or 6 times. Great service every time. Wide variety of food options. Great margaritas. No complaints at all. Excellent. Just excellent.

We have been going to Senor Rics for over twenty five years and have never had a bad meal. They are very nice, quick and the food is wonderful. I highly recommend the spinach enchiladas. We travel over an hour to have the food here.

An Aurora tradition! We have been coming here for over 20 years! The owners are friendly. We all love happy hour & my personal favorite is the shredded beef tacos. You can't go wrong with any of the food. Good hot wings.

The margaritas are good, the food is delicious and the service is prompt and friendly. The prices are very reasonable - - especially if you order the special of the day. There is a reason this small, family-owned restaurant has been doing a brisk business for 30 years in the original location!
