I've eaten here often. The food is very authentic Mexican and the prices are incredibly low. I've never been disappointed.

I've been going to El Senor Sol in Golden since 2010 and it is hands down my favourite Mexican food in the area. I can say I feel their prices have gone up a bit over the years, for basically the same quality of product... but every experience I've had there has been good enough to keep me coming. One... More

$20 for steak & shrimp fajitas after all the additional charges. Pretty sure I had a total of 3 shrimp on the plate. What a ripoff. Stick to the location in Littleton, they give you better portions for less.

We've been going to El Senor Sol for years and, on a recent visit back to Denver, looked forward to another opportunity for our family to meet up here. The entrees are varied and really good - have never had a bad meal here to date. Service and drinks were also very fine. I personally never get to dessert, just... More

It looks like a hole in the wall from the outside. It is not fancy but on a Tuesday night it was pretty full. The locals love it. We were from out of town... The Margarita's were awesome. So was the service. We had a large group and complicated orders. Not me, of course... Queso dip and chips, the chips... More

Friendly warm and colorful atmosphere, including an impassioned balada romantica mariachi song selection. i ordered the taco salad, I'm not a fan of iceberg lettuce the next time I will just ask them to leave it out.

Stopped for lunch and found the food to be right up there, service was over-the-top and price was right. Hard to be disappointed here. Chips and salsa had a nice fresh flavor.

Been driving by this place for a few years and we finally decided to stop and give it a try. Food was very good and the menu choices are extensive and interesting - I had a pregnant burrito. Decent food prices and happy hour drink options too. And the decor is fun and flavorful.

We had a farewell lunch at El Senor Sol. We were all very happy for the food. Portions were very generous and prices are very convenient. They serve burritos, burgers and a large variety of mexican and text mex food.

I ordered a large dos equis which came in a huge mug. It took some effort to get the whole thing down. I ordered the divorcidas enchiladas, so I could sample both the red and green chilis. The red chili was flavorful with medium heat. The green chili was very spicy and about 5 hours later gave me a bout... More
