Recently, our group of five adults met at Senor Ric's for lunch. The chips and salsa are the absolute best I've had anywhere. Each person in our group ordered something different and all of us were very pleased with our selections. We each had a margarita, too, which was very tasty. Our server was prompt and attentive to our needs.... More

Had Pollo Magifico that was very good. Prices are good for a Mexican restaurant. Service, in particular in the bar area was poor. Had to keep asking for drinks from the server. Then had to ask the server twice for the bill then she took forever to ring it out after she picked it up. Décor could also use updating.

I have been going here since 1986 and introduced the place to my entire family. They now live in TX, but every time they are in town or my kids home from college we make it a point to have lunch or dinner. Margs are tasty and the food is never a disappointment.

As part of our family reunion weekend, we chose to come here as it is one of Mom's favorites. It was a Friday night & the staff had everything set up for 25 people when we arrived. All parts of the service were excellent from getting drinks, orders & checking in with folks. Food was brought out timely, hot &... More

My husband and I love Mexican food and margaritas! Both were a big disappointment at Senior Rics. And the manager, from the moment she 'greeted' us at the door was rude and unfriendly. Beware, there is NO difference between the house margaritas and the Cadillac margarita. When I questioned how both were made, the manager actually had a fit. We... More

You have to ask for their jalapeno crème cheese to eat with their basket of chips! It is fabulous! I love it so much, I get extra to take home. I have never had a bad meal here and I have been coming for over 20 years!!!

Being in the Denver area for over 12 years now we’ve experienced the good the bad and the ugly in Mexican food. We have seen many come and go but Senor Ric’s has stood the test of time. Driving by any day of the week you will see the parking lot full. The 2 things that give this restaurant such... More

The food is pretty good, but there are a ton of Mexican restaurants in the area and I wouldn't necessarily say it's any better than some of the other ones. The service was a little slow, but it was busy on the night I went. The margaritas are delicious and the portions are generous.
