Top 10 restaurants in Aurora, United States

April 14, 2018 Concepcion Newsome

Although its highly residential quality and proximity to Denver make Aurora seem like simply a suburb of the larger metropolis, this bustling city has a flavor all its own. With seven golf courses, a reservoir beach, hiking trails and a multi-use Sports Park, the city is a major hub of athletics and hometown to numerous pro football, basketball, hockey and soccer players and coaches. Aurora's emerging arts scene brings forth vibrant theater and visual arts to liven up the city.

Monsoon

Reviewed By Hebgolfer - Aurora, Colorado

We too, my wife and I do not normally choose India Cuisine food. Our daughter took us to this very small restaurant in Southlands shopping center a few hears ago. We have been back on a few occasions and enjoyed our choices of India food. If you like Curries and other variety of spicy and non-spicy foods, you will enjoy this place. It does have outside seating in the summer. It is a very small place, but we have never had a problem getting seated.

Three Little Griddles

Reviewed By Jay R - Parker, Colorado

Stopped in for a late breakfast with a friend on a Saturday morning as nearby places all had significant waits. Had no idea this restaurant was here. Trusted the TA reviews. I'm glad we did.

We arrived about 10:15 Saturday. There were people waiting for tables already and we were seated in less than 10 minutes. The dining area is not extremely large, but it's very comfortable, with counter seating available. The interior isn't what we expected from outside. It was a nice surprise.

Service was fast and friendly. The menu was just the right size and offered plenty of choices We went with the Breakfast Burrito and a Make Your Own Omelet. The Omelet was probably 3 eggs and a good size. It was well cooked and seasoned. I added the Green Chile Sauce that came with the Breakfast Burrito. The sauce was very good. Potatoes were not the standard frozen Hash Browns. Appear to have been cut/cooked in house. The meal was very good. Price for 2, before tip was about $27.00. For the quality of the meal and portion size, it was definitely worth it.

By the time we left at 11:15, there was quite a crowd waiting outside, so the earlier you go, the less of a wait you'll likely have. The overall experience was good enough that I will revisit often as the location is only about 10 minutes from where I live. I definitely recommend Three Little Griddles.

Cafe Paprika

Reviewed By TanMD - Gig Harbor, Washington

In the mood for a low key dinner, we were pleasantly surprised by the taste and quality of the food at this little restaurant in Aurora. Located in a strip mall, this was some of the most tasty Mediterranean food I have had. We had the hummus, baba ghanouj falafel appetizer, and lamb skewers. Of course, two people could not do justice to the menu, but the mint tea and baklava were also good. The restaurant is not fancy, but the food is honest and delicious.

Ambli @ Holly

Reviewed By denver60 - Denver, Colorado

This was our 2nd visit to Ambli and it was even better than our first visit. Located in a strip mall, its appearance is deceiving. This is an eclectic, top notch restaurant and quite pricey but worth the expense. Our server was excellent and for our starter, we ordered the lobster shooters (excellent). Our mains were Paella (absolutely divine) and the curry sea bass (wonderful). All washed down with an excellent bottle of Hofstatter Pinot Nero. All said, a memorable evening.

Visited Bent Fork for a meet up with friends hadn't seen in a while. We all ordered drinks and soup/salad combinations. The salads were pretty typical; the chicken tortilla soup was very good. Drinks what you might expect. Our wait staff was attentive, personable, accommodating; didn't mind separate checks.

Eighteen friends decided to have dinner at Ted's Montana Grill in Aurora, CO. This was our first visit here. The restaurant features beef and bison dishes and other fare in the spirit of the early American West. With our reservation, we were seated at two adjacent tables. The menu offers good choices of starters, salads, sandwich and entrees with bison, beef or seafood. The drink list includes a good number of wines and cocktails, but surprisingly few craft beers for a Colorado restaurant. Our pleasant waitress took orders soon after we had time to study the menu. Although the restaurant was becoming very busy, our dinners came to our tables in a reasonable time. My wife had a beef filet with veggie sides. She thought her steak was one of the best ever. I started with a cup of thick and flavorful chicken tortilla soup. I like good meatloaf, so I had the bison meatloaf with mashed potatoes and asparagus. It was a large and rich tasting comfort food dinner. One couple sitting beside us had the slow-braised Bison Pot Roast which was a thumbs up. Another friend had a satisfying beef burger. My wife enjoyed a Wild Berry Cheesecake dessert. Teds Montana Grill did a fine job of serving our large group.

Tables

Reviewed By CARose - California

Excellent farm to table restaurant tucked in a residential part of town. Nice rustic yet elegant atmosphere. Open table friendly.

We started with the tuna tartare appetizer and a sweetbreads appetizer. Both were outstanding and impeccably fresh. These were perfect for 3 people to share.

Entrees were outstanding. Scallops with riso, cherry, fennel slaw. Aged ribeye cooked perfectly with polenta, goat cheese and a reduction. King salmon with fresh seasonal veg. All plates were cleaned.

They have excellent bar staff and offer artisan hand crafted cocktails. Also offer a fair selection of digestifs for after the meal.

Then came dessert. Dry cake. Imagine grocery store birthday cake that's been sitting out on the counter for 3 days. I'm really not too picky on dessert, but this had to be sent back. Dessert was a dismal finale to what was otherwise an excellent meal. Would've been 5 stars.

I will definitely come back and change rating if warranted . Highly recommend.

Sam's No. 3

Reviewed By airdronepilot - Parker

If people are standing or sitting in line to get it, it is not because the food is bad. One of my favorite breakfast spots. Daily specials, great green Chile, huge selections of meat and eggs. Pancakes and waffles for your gluten fix. Only con I can think of, I wish they have better french toast, more sweet flavor.

I wish there was a Sam #4 in the Arapahoe & Parker area.

Reviewed By ColoradoTraveler2go - Landstuhl, Germany

We had dinner here tonight and enjoyed the place. The server "Frankie" was very attentive and waited on us better than several other much more expensive places. We all had steaks and salads with my wife and son eating the baked sweet potato and I had the loaded baked potato. I got the better deal. The loaded potato only cost an additional 99 cents. The entire meal for three was $60. There is plenty of parking and room inside to wait. Don't forget to snack on the peanuts while you wait.

Rosie's Diner

Reviewed By Kay S

Nothing outstanding - just different facade than typical fast-food type sit-down restaurant. Nothing fancy and regular service - not fast, not show. Menu extensive, but I thought a bit high-priced. Quaint atmosphere if you're of the 50s & 60s era, which I am. Would go again
