    As police pursue South Park's Cartman for kidnapping Butters, he runs through Casa Bonita, sampling all of their attractions including Black Bart's Cave, Puppet Shows, and finally, the Cliff Divers

    You can't call yourself a Coloradan until you've visited Casa Bonita, an institution that was alternately amusing and horrifying visitors long before the concept of "eatertainment" became hot. Read more

    They have an admission fee option for $10 you get a soda and sopapillias

    This place is legit. Probably one of Denver's most premier Mexican restaurants. I've tried every dish and don't have anything bad to say about the food other than that it's delicious.

    Everything! I had an excellent bean burrito with queso on top and Spanish rice. To top it all of, dessert was an awesome Sopaipilla treat with honey!

    OK, I understand it's cool to rip on this place - but the truth is, we need more unique places in a franchise world. Great food, good entertainment, themed environment, and LOTS to explore!!

    The food can't be avoided (must purchase a meal for entry) but plan to go with friends and camp out, and order tons of drinks. Plenty of shows, arcade games, and amusing ephemera to explore.

    There's a reqmt. to purchase one entree per person. Based on menu pictures the entrees looked like $$ gruel. My wife and I just wanted to go after breakfast for sopaipillas and couldn't due to this.

    Taco salad was the best choice (though the register girl said she liked the rellianos). Always a cool experience!

    Not your average Mexican restaurant, this longtime Denver favorite is known less for its food and more as an indoor amusement park with cliff divers, a pirate cave, magicians and more.

    You go here for the atmosphere, the entertainment and to watch the delight on the kids faces (and first-timers!). The food you could get out of the freezer section of the supermarket.

    Brace yourself for a meal of epic proportions — all-you-can-eat beef enchiladas are served in a pirate cavern beneath a 22-karat gold leaf dome featuring a statue of the last Aztec emperor. Read more

    was out first time. Get there early to avoid lines. choose the taco salad no meat. bc a meal is required. My whole fam is sick from the food so stick w basic things. Eat chips n salsa n sopapillas

    The taco salad was actually ok. Sopapillas were not as good anymore. You're not going for the food but a fun unique experience that your kids won't forget. The best tacky tourist attraction ever,

    So much fun! The food is absolutely disgusting, but it's definitely a family place. The sopapillas are better then most in Denver. I totally recommend it.

    The food isn't as bad as people say. The entertainment is awesome! We played so much skeeball when we weren't busy watching the cliff divers.

    I enjoyed the taco salad but everyone else in my group complained bitterly. It was sort of ridiculous but I'm glad I saw it once. It felt like Disneyland+Cafeteria.

    Nothing on the Manu is worth the calories.. You are better off eating at taco bell or deltaco.. The kids enjoys the experience and they have fun here, they make you buy a $13.00 meal in order to go in

    Let me suggest....the water and lettuce. Not at all what I expected for the food. I would definitely say Taco Bell is much better than this. However, my 6 yr old daughter loved the shows.

    If you want to experience the best Casa Bonita has to offer walk through the exit, look around, and go elsewhere for dinner

    Get a table by the waterfall for great views of the show.

    Casa Bonita is like a Mexican Disneyland since there is so much detail to the decor. It's also like Disneyland because the food is expensive (and kinda sucks), but that $15 you pay acts as admission.

    Generally a great experience. Dont expect much of the food but the experience with kids and friends is a "10"

    The setting of a village in Mexico, complete with a waterfall, recreated inside. This restaurant is truly unique.

    Somewhere you have to go at least once to see what it's all about. The food isn't that bad. The enchiladas were pretty good.

    You have to be a fan of South Park to fully appreciate this place. Sit back and enjoy the show.
  • Bill B.
    You shouldn't leave Denver without coming here. Most Denverites only come here with out of towners. Bring kids! The atmosphere is festive. Oh... The food sucks.. But that's not why we come here.

    Popular place. The kids had a lot of fun. The food is average and overall way too expensive. The wait is too long all things considered. Seating location is key!

    Definitely interesting but geared for kids. Warning: the food will tear you up!

    This place is really cool and fun! Eat before you go, DO NOT eat the food. Consider the meal your entrance fee.

    Lower level in the caves to the right of the water fall. One of the stalagmites has the words casa bonita on it. This is the cave with the bats on the ceiling not the barrel.

    I think I have a sopapilla hangover. They are pretty tasty, hot & dripping with honey.
