Cold beans and rice; don't go if you don't want beer or tequila.

Pleasant restaurant with nice furniture. Lots of beer choices, but I asked for wine, was not given a list-just asked If I wanted red or white. Then did I want merlot or Cabernet. All the cocktails offered contained tequila. I had tacos which were tasty, .but the retried beans and rice were cold... read more

I used to go to El Senor Sol multiple times a week as the food was fantastic and close to work. About 4 years ago, we had a few bad experiences and hadn't been back. We went this evening to give it a second chance. The service was just ok. Waiters were bustling around and kept running in to my... More

Went here for dinner for our friend son's birthday (# 11 ), and it was fab! Food was superb and the birthday celebration was even better. Great classic Mexican food not pre-made crap! Will come back again and again!

We lived in Golden, CO for 5 years and this was our place to go. Besides excellent and authentic food, the service is outstanding. Roberto was and remains the best server we ever had anywhere. The other staff is great too. The food is exceptional, real Mexican. Don't miss it.

Just driving down Colfax in Golden and getting hungry. Spied this Mexican restaurant and turned around and went in. What a pleasant surprise! Authentic mexican food with fantastic service! Chimichangas and a huge wonderful margarita! Highly recommended!

With great anticipation ordered their Chili Rellenos - The "coating" was hard and must have been some kind of a wrap, certainly not battered. The Chili was basically raw - totally uncooked and the cheese almost firm - should have sent it back. Service was friendly but slow in spite of almost empty restaurant. Ambience was ok - Perhaps their... More

I grew up down the street so I've been coming here for many years. I've never ordered anything that I didn't like. My new favorite is the chili rellenos or the pregnant burrito with a relleno inside of it! They also recently started table side guacamole which is wonderful and you always know it's fresh. Everyone is always happy. But... More

Located just off of I-70 on Colfax, El Senior Sol has been a long time favorite. It's the kind of place that the wait staff remember their regulars, and know what they want even before the order is placed. My personal favorite is the "pregnant burrito" with a chili relleno. Large portions, good salsa, and great taste are to all... More

We've been going to El Senor Sol for 8 years and have never been disappointed with the food or service. There are several of them in Denver, and we've tried three, but we keep coming back to the Golden location. We even pass one in Evergreen on our way to it. It is great, home style Mexican food. The margaritas... More
