Aurora is one of Colorado's most diverse cities, with more than 150 languages spoken in our community. That global influence extends to our food, with 330-plus authentic, specialty restaurants and markets to explore. At the same time, we're home to many Colorado-founded chains and national and worldwide favorites that have chosen Aurora as their only Colorado location.

Since the 1990s, the city of Aurora has highlighted Aurora's vibrant dining scene through a handy dining guide that has evolved over the years as the city itself has changed.

The latest version, Aurora Eats, features cuisines representing countries from nearly every continent around the world. As you explore Aurora Eats, you'll have no doubt that Aurora is a world in a city.

Our Aurora Eats guide is newly updated as of August 2023. Download the PDF of the printed Aurora Eats guide, or email [email protected] to request a printed copy by mail.
