Okay, just to be clear, you don't go to Casa Bonita for any other reason than entertainment - which is geared towards children. We took our kids to this place about 30 years ago and they loved it. Recently we took our 5 year old grand daughter there, and she loved it. The place has a unique atmosphere - part... More

This place is great if you don't go for the food. Very bland tasting, I get the feeling you go for the wow factor when entering. Great little live shows that my children enjoyed. The pirate cave isn't recommended if you have children that are scared of pretty much anything! We should have learned that from our last experience with... More

We lived in Colorado back in 1979 for a short time. I still miss it there. We also ate at Casa Bonita a couple of times. It was the most unique restaurant we had ever had the pleasure of patronizing. No other Mexican restaurant has ever made the sopapillas like this restaurant. It left such a mark on us that... More

I went to casta bonita to catch up with a friend and to kind of get away from the kids, my kids thought that they might bring out an actual ape, but NOOOOOOO, they brought out a man in a suit. The arcade didnt have that many games the ski ball was not so great, very broken down & not... More

No one goes here for the food, obviously, but if you have never been then you really ought to go once if you are in Denver for any length of time. If nothing else, it will give you something to talk about since you'll likely not visit another restaurant quite like it. We recently stopped in yet again on a... More

All the way from Arkansas trying to recapture a memory and ignoring the Facebook reviews. That was a big mistake. There is a definite musty smell. The initial plate was hot which made the food good. Refills were cold. Service was deplorable. I got my drink toward the end of the meal, but had to get up and chase down... More

If you want atmosphere, this is the place to go. Everything from magicians to cliff divers in a really cool setting. The food wasn't horrible, but it wasn't anything special either. It's fun to visit though and there is a lot to see and experience. Great place to go to if you are in the area, but probably not worth... More

I'm not sure why other reviewers are talking about Chuck-E-Cheese and food. We went there, obviously, to replicate the experience as seen in season 7, episode 11 of South Park, where Cartman... goes to extreme lengths to get a chance to go to CASA BONITAAAAA. Honestly, it does not at all disappoint. A bit of a line to get in.... More

My husband, 12y/o daughter and I went there for lunch today (just to say we tried it)! The ambiance was very unique and entertaining, but that was NOT food! I ordered a beef taco salad. Husband ordered chicken taco salad and daughter ordered chicken tenders and fries. We all tried at least 6 or 7 bites and we all agreed... More
