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.

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.

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!

Casa Bonita

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.

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.

After thirty years of chaotic eatertainment, this surreal Mexican theme restaurant still attracts indiscriminately hungry tourists! Like us.
