I've been going here for couple years . Best I mean best Mexican food ever.
Terrible service from the waiter. I have been here 2 times before and had bad service from this server and let it go. He was ignorant to my table repeatedly through the night. I told the owner about this server and our experience. He was ignorant too and just gave me a fake apology and hung up.
Don't waste your time here. It's not worth the aggravation.
GREAT FOOD AND SERVICE – I HAD JUST ORDERED LUNCH FOR MYSELF AND 5 OF MY WORK ASSOCIATES. I WILL BE VERY HONEST, THE YOUNG GAL (HOSTESS) WHO TOOK MY ORDER DID A REMARKABLE JOB. WE HAD ALOT OF SPECIAL ORDERS AND ADDS. NOT A THING WAS WRONG. SHE WAS VERY POLITE BOTH ON THE PHONE AND IN PERSON. THE ONLY THING I WILL MENTION IS THAT THE CHIPS WERE VERY STALE BUT NO WORRIES!!
Best Mexican Food for 25 Years – My parents and I have been going to Senor Ric's since they first opened in 1986 and immediately fell in love with it. The food is exceptional, the service is friendly and outstanding, and the atmosphere is comfortable. Portions are huge - we always ending up taking food home. Prices are very reasonable - dinner for 3 with drinks is usually under $50 even with tax and tip. We have tried almost everything on the menu, and our favorites that we always come back to are the Pollo Magnifico, Ric's Platter, Ric's Chimichanga, Spinach Enchiladas, the fajita platter, shredded beef tacos, and any of the combination platters. All meals come with unlimited free chips and salsa. The margaritas are awesome! If you like spicy food, order the Pork Green Chili - it's like eating fire!
Not so good anymore – This used to be my favorite place to eat. Not anymore. Took my mom for lunch recently on two occasions. Salsa has no taste to it. Drinks come with big chunks of ice in it, can hardly drink them. First time I got burned because I was not told the plate was scorching hot. Second visit, still no warning but I had learned my lesson there. Food was cold, waiter NEVER made it back around to the table, to the point that we could have walked out. We had to pay at the lobby and they didnt even seem concerned with taking our money. Wont be taking my family here ever again.
Salty Food...Made Me Sick – Went to Senor Ric's for lunch with coworkers. Was told in advance that the food was excellent, and was excited after reading the reviews. However, the food left much to be desired. The food was too salty. The refried beans tasted strange--bland with a strange aftertaste. The rice was extremely salty and tasted like it had been reheated from the night before. I left feeling sick to my stomach.
Next time my coworkers suggest a lunchtime treat at Senor Rics I will definitely pass.
Margaritas are fantastic! Food.... not so much. – An old friend of ours stopped by to see our new house this afternoon. After hanging out for a while, we decided to get something to eat. The 3 of us piled into the car and started driving down Mississippi. My boyfriend and I had passed Senor Ric's a few times and had mentioned wanting to try it (being the fans of Mexican cuisine that we are) and our friend was in, so Senor Ric's it was!
We were promptly seated in a tall booth that made me feel like queen of the jungle restaurant. The decor was filled with plants, dimly lit and pretty darn cool. I liked the atmosphere. Chips & salsa were brought to us immediately, bonus! However, their salsa was meh... I've had better. We happened to venture in during happy hour so we indulged. Their basic margarita was pretty freakin' good for a basic bottom shelf drink! This was by far the high point of the evening. The chimichangas were the Tuesday night special, so that's what I got. We waited a long time for food. They weren't that busy and my boyfriend and I were enjoying our conversation with our friend so it wasn't a big deal, but it should be noted that it took too long to feed us.
Now, for the food. I have to give it a big fat MEH! The black beans tasted weird, the chili wasn't very good and the chimichanga was soggy & not crispy at all. The chicken tasted good. Mostly moist, but a few dry spots. Overall, the food did not impress me. Mexican is one of my favorites! I was disappointed.
The service was A+! The young man (he had to have been in high school still) was very good. The busser even brought us more chips & salsa before we completely ran out and was quick on the draw with the water / iced tea refills! Nice job on the service, Senor Ric's!
I wouldn't mind going back for happy hour for another margarita or two, but to actually eat a meal? Probably not. The hunt for fantastic Mexican in Aurora continues!
Great food for a low price – We have been eating there for over ten years and have never had a bad meal. The Pollo Magnifico is great and the spanish rice is the best. Great service and lots of seating and some of the staff has been there as long as we have been eating there. I just wish they would bring back the Mariachi band.
Great Food, Excellent Service – I have been going to Senor Ric's for about fifteen years. I always take friends there and we order the fajita platter. We have never been disappointed. I highly recommend this place for lunch or dinner. It is great!
