    Places to Eat

    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 John Lehndorff and produced by the City of Aurora and Visit Aurora.  John Lehndorff is an award-winning Colorado food journalist.  He is the former food editor of the Aurora Sentinel and Boulder Daily Camera, dining critic for the Rocky Mountain News, and chief judge at the National Pie Championships.  He wrote "Denver Dines" (Johnson), a guide to more than 400 Denver-area dining spots.  His writing has appeared in the Washington Post, USA Today, Town & Country and the Denver Post.  He hosts the weekly Radio Nibbles on KGNU (88.5 FM, kgnu.org).

    We hope that the YUM Guide 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!
