“Best Mexican Food in Denver Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

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. You can't go wrong with the La Cueva combination--it includes a good sampling of everything--burrito, rellonos, and tacos. Try smothering the burritos, chili rellanos, or enchiladas "Christmas" style, which includes both red and and green chile. Outstanding.

“Fine mexican cuisine, genuine family recipes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2012

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.

“A Great Neighborhood Find”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2011

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.
