I live in Aurora, and we always drive through and see this place with its parking lot full, so we had to try it. I'm really glad that we did. We went in and we were seated right away. The waiter was very friendly and attentive. I ordered an enchilada plate with a margarita and shared it with my wife.... More

The food was good-the peach margarita excellent. The rice was ok. The pico de gallo and accompanyments were good too. I ate there again.

I've never encountered a situation where I found a restaurant meal inedible. Nothing on my plate was. It was our first time there and had had friends tell us it was really good. False. Maybe it was a weird anomaly but the table next to us had the same problem. The quality of ingredients was deplorable. The meat looked canned... More

I have eaten here before but not in a lot of years. Being in the area I thought I would eat here again. What a big disappointment. I was eating solo and seated immediately in what was a restaurant about 1/2 filled at the most on a Sunday (06 July 14) at 12:30. I promptly received the chips and salsa... More

Have been here numerous times, and I have yet to be disappointed. Wife and I ordered drinks not on their list,,,not only did they make them, they made them well. Rics platter is a good choice to try, along with the Sanora Chicken or a Grande Burrito. Be sure to get it smothered in their green chili sauce, and bring... More

We had a very nice meal at Senor Ric's. The food was good, different than the Mexican we had in the Yucatan, but also from most Mexican restaurants on the East Coast. Very tasty, medium spicy, and served by very attentive waiting staff. Francisco made sure the grandkids were taken care of quickly (as kids are not the most patient... More

Had dinner here and was not impressed. Place was clean and food was okay, service was too. But overall it felt like a 'strip mall Mexican' kind of place and in a town/area where there are a lot of authentic Mexican places , I wouldn't choose this place again for that kind of cuisine.

I have two Hispanic grandmothers who make amazing Mexican food and I can tell place is definitely authentic. The food is surprisingly spicy and delicious! It's been around for many years and is always busy. The green chili is great and makes a good smothered burrito.
