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
