An Aurora tradition! We have been coming here for over 20 years! The owners are friendly. We all love happy hour & my personal favorite is the shredded beef tacos. You can't go wrong with any of the food. Good hot wings.

The margaritas are good, the food is delicious and the service is prompt and friendly. The prices are very reasonable - - especially if you order the special of the day. There is a reason this small, family-owned restaurant has been doing a brisk business for 30 years in the original location!

The Margaritas are excellent. Very good chips and salsa. The service was pretty good but not great. The food was ok but very Gringo. Not very authentic mexican.

I've been eating at Senor Ric's since very near the day they opened their doors. Pollo Magnifico is my all-time favorite. They have a great happy hour and have mini-chimi's that are delicious. Have eaten lunch, dinner, and gone in to just catch some games in the bar. Years ago we moved farther away from Ric's but try to get... More

Quite simply a delicious Mexican food experience. I recommend the cheese enchiladas. The sauces they use are blended perfectly with their seasonings to bring your taste buds into Mexican food ecstasy! Pricing is VERY reasonable. Combine that with the quality of the food and that makes this dinning experience a great value. Ingress and egress to this fine restaurant is... More

The service is great but the food is less than exciting. One taste of the fried tortilla bowl told me they need desperately to change their oil. It's Mexican American food...where is the spice??? Very disappointing.

I have been going to Senor Ric's for probably 20 years. Many people also continue to go. Friendly staff, and food and drinks are consistent. Enjoy the food and atmosphere. Only suggestion-the happy hour food is not great. Chips, salsa and beans. All could be better. The chips are not that tasty and salsa and beans are just ok.

Happy hour for the best margaritas in town! Free chips, bean dip and salsa. Good menu-freshly prepared Mexican food. There is a reason this independent restaurant still thrives and it is the owners and the staff they have trained to provide the best service to the customer.

My husband and I have been goin g to this restaurant for better than 20 years. We really appreciate Mexican food. This is more Tex Mex not too hot but ample portions delivered quickly at a reasonable price.

I am a true Mexican foodie... I could eat it every day of the week. My honey and I frequent Señor Ric's at least twice a month. It has a Mexico feel as far as the decor and atmosphere. I suggest the Chile Relano and/or the Tamales .. My honey enjoys the ground beef and chicken tacos or enchiladas.
