    Find Aurora, Colorado Restaurants

    From Aurora’s collection of more than 250 ethnic restaurants to a classic American diner featured on the Food Network, there’s an Aurora dining destination to satiate every craving. In the mood for Korean kimchi, or maybe naan and curry? Whether it’s sushi or a good old burger and fries, you’ll find it on Visit Aurora’s extensive Aurora, Colorado restaurant listings.

    Restaurants marked with (**) represent entries that are in the YUM  Guide , which was written by Rebecca Caro and produced by the City of Aurora and Visit Aurora.  We did this in hopes that it serves as a resource to help you explore the many great ethnic and independent eateries in Aurora.  Every effort was made to ensure that the information within is accurate.  And, while we can't guarantee that, we would love to know if we missed your favorite spot or something listed has changed.  So, if you have helpful feedback, please drop us a note at inquiries@visitaurora.com.  Thanks and Bon Appétit!
