“Cold beans and rice; don't go if you don't want beer or tequila.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

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 was offered, except a "sorry., must have been on the plate too long." I was hoping for replacement with hot food or a "reduction in bill. Husband had a tamale (handmade on site) and a burrito; he declared both good. Did not care for the salsa. Service was piecemeal with at least five persons involved.

“Great food at a decent price. ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2013

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 be expected.

“The best in Denver”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

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 are awesome...and huge! They don't skimp on the tequila, either. It's a great place to go with family and friends. I recommend it to people all the time.

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