Their dishes are some of the best in the metro-area. Always top on the list with Westword, Yelp and native Aurorans!

I travel to Aurora on business occasionally and have chosen to eat at La Cueva every trip. A small, family run business that serves terrific Tex-Mex. Service is very good. Try the La Cueva Queso appetizer as we get it every time and it's always a hit.

I stopped in as I do whenever I can for my favorite, the chile relleno lunch special on Tuesdays. I am lucky enough to have lived two blocks from this restaurant for the last 20 years and have never been disappointed. The owner, managers and wait staff are top notch people, and they have fantastic food. I always try to... More

Great authentic mexican food, family recipes. Possibly the best mexican food in Denver. Watch out for the green chile, it can really be hot.

La Cueva is a wonderful. family-owned and operated restaurant on East Colfax in Aurora. The food is excellent from the homemade chips and salsa to the many wonderful entrees.

La Cueva is so different. They use true family recipes, freshly made fine sauces and healthy ingredients (no pork fat, wonderful pepper). The atmosphere is casual and the prices very affordable, but their cooking is so much better! It is owned by the same family for 40 years and they use the traditional Guanajuato recipes from their grandmother. Highly reccomended.

Great meals for a great price with excellent service. Food is made from scratch, tasty and at the table, pronto. The Cueva Combination gives the diner the best of everything at a reasonable price. Try it once and you WILL return.
