“I came here to watch the playoffs. The waitress didn't mind me squatting and ordering appetizers with beers, the whole time. My kids loved the sliders and I was digging the mozzarella sticks. I went with her red ale recommendation and it was perfect. Great game day until my team lost.Other than my team's gameplay, or lack there of, the service and food was great. I enjoyed the environment. The tables are a tad small and the parking is a pain, but I live in the area. So I walked my drunk butt home.”

Star of India 3102 S Parker Rd A10, Aurora Indian • $$
3102 S Parker Rd A10, Aurora

“This place is delicious! Probably one of the top 5 best Indian restaurants I've been to in Colorado. I'm not giving it a 5 star only because the restaurant hours are restrictive and the appetizer was very salty--but besides that, everything was great. Nice staff. Speedy service. Decent pricing. Spacious seating with clean interior. Clean bathrooms. And plenty of parking outside the restaurant. I would definitely come back here on a date with my husband.”

Bettola Bistro 10253 E Iliff Ave, Aurora Italian • $$
10253 E Iliff Ave, Aurora

“According to the restaurant, Bettola literally means Hole in the Wall - google says it means Tavern. In either case it seems appropriate.Not a typical fancy restaurant- this place seems to emphasize what’s important: FOOD - great quality food and great service. Also great wine knowledge and pairing.The chef oddly is a small Vietnamese lady. If you’re there late she’ll probably come out to ask how the food was. She learned her skills in (France I think, Europe anyways)”

“Seriously, the Carne Asada was so good, I'm convinced the chef whispered sweet nothings to it before grilling. And the kids (5,7)? They ate in utter silence, a phenomenon so rare I checked if they were still breathing. Didn’t believe in miracles until I took,the leftovers home bc the meal was that good, and guess what? Round two was just as epic. If Sazon’s cooking classes are a thing, sign me up yesterday!”

It’s a great space for entertaining. I’d highly recommend it for any special event. Best of all, the beer is tasty and all the bartenders are attentive and kind. Thanks Jen & Javi!”

Athenian Restaurant 15350 E Iliff Ave, Aurora Greek • $$
15350 E Iliff Ave, Aurora

“We walked in and we're greeted like family. The portions are massive and the prices are not. We got drinks, an app, 3 large plates of food and two desserts. There's plenty of leftovers and it costs the same as any chain restaurant. You will be full and you will enjoy it. The best Greek place I've been to in my life. Try the fried custard. It's basically a stuffed Funnel Cake with just lightly sweetened custard and the perfect dusting of sugar and cinnamon.Dietary restrictions: Vegan and vegetarian plates, even gluten free plates.”

Heritage Cafe 22691 E Aurora Pkwy Unit B 8-9, Aurora American • $$
22691 E Aurora Pkwy Unit B 8-9, Aurora

“Went here for the first time yesterday. The only open two top table was by the front door, so we were seated there. A bit chilly, but as that was the only table, I could live with that. We ordered lattes, and my husband asked the waiter for his to be very, very hot. He was assured it would be. It took a while to get them, and when we did, mine wasn't very hot, and my husband's was actually cooler than mine - barely lukewarm. I'm thinking they may have sat for a bit before being served. The food was good. Husband had an omelette and I had a Greek bowl, which pleasantly was able to be made with grits instead of hash browns. It was yummy. We also ordered the cinnamon roll, which was tasty, but a lot, so we weren't able to finish our meals. When the waiter brought the bill, I handed him my card, and he handed me back the reader so I could fill in the tip. Didn't like that the suggested tips were 20, 25 and 30%. That's a bit high, especially for just decent, average service. I decided to do a custom tip to put an amount I felt was more appropriate. The whole time I was doing the calculations, the waiter stood over me like a vulture just watching me. It was disconcerting. I took a percent off of the tip for that. Not the best first impression, but we'll give them another chance. The food was good, and the lattes were good, even being a bit on the "just warm" side. We like to go to local, family run businesses, so we'll go back again.”

“We were too excited to eat so unfortunately we didn't take any pictures! We are visiting from out of town and grabbed dinner tonight and couldn't be happier we came here! Everything was incredibly delicious. I had the Tajine chicken with preserved lemon and olives over rice. The flavors were amazing and I couldn't believe how lemony the chicken was. My husband had the lamb shank and it was falling off the bone tender! Highly recommend. Large portions, we couldn't even finish our plates. Amazing food, and we got to talk to the owner a bit and he was so kind and friendly. We can't wait to come back the next time we're in town.”

“Hot pot is a traditional East Asian cuisine where you boil ur choice of soup and add ur choice or meat and veggies to it. The table has stove tops to do this and you can choose what you want for the order. There is a salad bar where you customize your sause to go with the meal that you will prepare.This specific restaurant was my first hotpot and I was excited abt it. I really liked it. Making your own meal is the fun part apart from having food from right the stove.”

Aurora Sonoda's Sushi 3108 S Parker Rd D1, Aurora Sushi • $$
3108 S Parker Rd D1, Aurora

“Pretty good place. I've had takeout a couple times at this point and they're very welcoming. While some of their sushi is about as expensive as you'd expect from a sushi place, they have a couple budget rolls that are of far higher quality than the grocery-store stuff yet competitive in price. That's amazing on its own and probably explains their popularity a bit. From what I've discussed with other customers while waiting for my food, everyone has nothing but good things to say.Definitely a place worth visiting.”
