Casa Bonita Restaurant

Real restaurant as featured on the Casa Bonita episode of South Park. Cliff divers, cowboy fights and random gorillas. Completely cheesy and fun. They def give the nod to South Park, with random characters hidden throughout. Don't go for the food, but the insane ambiance.

Casa Bonita

This place has permanently closed.

[Taggert Morrow, 08/04/2020]

The restaurant temporarily closed in March 2020 -- along with most other Colorado restaurants impacted by Covid-19 precautions -- but it has yet to reopen.

Casa Bonita

I will second all the posts that say that the food is horrible at Casa Bonita; be prepared to need to stop for dinner after eating there. However, I still recommend it because it is so unique and fun... especially for kids. Bring your camera.

[Martin Hafer, 07/27/2018]

No matter how hard the cooks toil at Casa Bonita, they're unlikely to win respect for the food in a place that has indoor cliff diving, gunfights, and a guy in a gorilla suit.
