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

Poor service, mediocre food, and less than friendly. The chips and salsa were less than notable. I have never been back.

Fantastic service, very close to authentic Mexican food, watch out for the green chili----- I can be on the hot side some times(made fresh so it varies) get it on the side, deserts are plain. Margs are enormous !! It's better than Casa Bonita (LOL) Buttttt-----You HAVE to go to Casa Bonita-----it's a trip!!
