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

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. When I told one server that, nothing... 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

The food is good and the portions are large. Service rates "ok". I had the tamales. We go there every few months.

Typical basic Mexican restaurant food. Nice people work here. Food is okay and you can count on getting the same consistent food quality visit to visit. Good for families as it is reasonable in cost. Fine for an evening meal out without breaking the bank.

Ate lunch here yesterday and ordered the fish tacos. On the plate were bite size chunks of fried fish, pico de gallo, lettuce, slices of avocado, and warm corn tortillas. Simple, good food, and healthy. The complimentary chips and salsa never disappoint. There is much about the decor I enjoy - fun, colorful wall hangings and carved chairs at the... More
