Lakewood, Colorado: Casa BonitaEat Mexican food to the appetite-stimulating splash of indoor cliff divers.
Visitor Tips and News About Casa Bonita
I grew up in Colorado, and as I kid I would beg my mom to take me to Casa Bonita for my birthday. We would drive in from Colorado Springs for the adventure. Now I have moved back to the Denver area and I can't believe I have talked my honey into taking me back! It was 1976 or '77 the last time I was here! Not much has changed. You just have to do it! Have some fun and don't take yourself too seriously. It is worth the stop.[Dori, 08/19/2010]
We were there earlier this month, watching families enjoy the indoor cliff diving.
Seating is very interesting. Tons of little balconies overlook the cliff divers.[Katharine Chestnut, 07/10/2010]
Just visited here, must say it is worth going to experience it all. Gorilla show, gun fight, cliff divers and much more. Food is overpriced and awful quality, but a place that has all this is worth it![Shellye, 04/28/2010]
Food is cafeteria style, sub par. Sopapillas for dessert were above par when paired with honey. Attractions were a must-see. Cliff divers, gunfighters, Black Bart's cave, etc. very entertaining.[Rockin p, 02/08/2010]
Casa Bonita is still there and doing very well. It was quite busy on a weeknight. It's a fun restaurant, but the food is quite bad -- basically Taco Bell quality at three times the price. The entertainment is really fun, though.
If you are passing through the area, need a hotel, and are thinking of staying, drive out of this area first. Apparently, Colfax is a terrible neighborhood.[Brian, 05/27/2006]
After thirty years of chaotic eatertainment, this surreal Mexican theme restaurant still attracts indiscriminately hungry tourists! Like us.
