Casa Bonita

[Lakewood, CO] Ours mouths dropped open at the news.

The New York Times wrote about Casa Bonita restaurant.

It wrote that the restaurant went bankrupt in 2020 after decades of serving “steamed refried beans, tacos and enchiladas to thousands of people a day, buffet-style.

“The dinner entertainment was a child’s fever dream: waterfalls, cliff divers, Black Bart’s Cave, faux gold and silver mines, puppet shows and a person in a gorilla costume chased by a sheriff, who sometimes joined in the cliff diving.”

Lingering in a dark corner of popular culture, The Times added that “Casa Bonita’s curious childhood grip was chronicled in an episode of ‘South Park.'”

Then our mouths dropped further.

“South Park” creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone have now “spent upward of $40 million to tear it down, rebuild it and, they joke, to keep everything the same, except now sanitary.”

The creators of “South Park” and the Broadway musical “The Book of Mormon” now own Casa Bonita. OMG.

Famous for its elaborate interiors, sopapillas, and decades of first dates, Casa Bonita is now opening with limited dinner hours. However, during this beta-test stage, they will not be seating walk-ins.

Reservation opportunities will only go to those who have visited the restaurant’s website and subscribed to its email list.

According to CBS News Colorado, “more than 100,000 people have signed up.”

Dang. Just save us some sopapillas, okay?
