Anyone who is visiting the Denver area has probably been taken there by their local guests. Its a tradition. Its the architecture and performers show that is the draw, definitely not the food. Mexican food, served cafeteria style, you walk down through a maze with a tray. It can get busy. During dining, they have a cliff diving show which... More

This was our first, and last time going here. I found it very strange that everyone 2 yrs old and up HAD to order something. I get that they have a buffet and don't want food sharing but I don't like that they force that on you. My daughter didn't want anything that was offered in the menu and would... More

This place has a ton of potential but is filthy. The carpets, the bathrooms, everything. You can just feel the filth walking in. The divers were good. The other shows you couldn't understand the actors because of how they spoke in to the microphone. The food...yeah it's worse than taco bell. Personally I wouldn't waste my time and money to...

Casa Bonita is unlike any restaurant you will ever experience. The place is huge. You can't tell from the outside (it's located in a strip mall), but it's massive. You will wait in a very long line. It will be loud. You will have to carry a cafeteria tray full of food to your table. But it's just part of... More

My family and I were planning to go out to eat and wanted our kids and grand kids to a Mexican restaurant but when we looked up the menu on line it states all children 2 and up must purchase a meal. We have one child that feeds on a g-tube and another that's on a special diet for seizures... More

As a 40-something Colorado native, I remember the first, magical experience I had at Casa Bonita 35+ years ago. Although I'm older now and the place doesn't seem quite as huge, it's still pretty amazing - especially to little kids 12 and under. I have taken all 4 of our kids there at different stages in their lives and recently... More

If you are going for the entertainment value and a place for kids, great! But don't expect high-quality Mexican food. You will not find it here. The cliff divers were strangely cool and our group of 50 kids loved the games and things to see. Our group of 12 adults were not impressed with the food.

Have you been to Chuck E. Cheese's? The Rain Forest Cafe? Disney? If you are looking for an entertainment venue for the kids and you are not too picky about your food, you just may like this place. They have kiddie rides, old time photos, actors who perform silly skits and a cliff diver who dives off a rock waterfall... More

The show they put on is entertaining! The food is aweful. We had taco salad's, and the whole family was in the bathroom after. Needless to say I would not recommend this place to anyone...

Not the best Mexican food available in Denver, but not bad. Great place to take the family. Very entertaining with cliff divers
