Casa Bonita is a theme park disguised as a mexican restaurant. Or a mexican restaurant described as a theme park.
After you get there, you are whisked into a long line, just like those you stand in at Magic Mountain, and you sit there until you order. The food is kind of gross, but that's not the point. The point is the dining experience.
I'm not even going to try to explain it all, but I'll list a few things you'll see inside:
Indoor cliff divers jumping off of artificial lava rocks 30 feet high and landing in a deep pool. You'll also see a man in a gorilla suit doing the same thing. You might dine inside a mine, in a vineyard, in a palace, or some other highly stylized setting. You can see cheesy comedy routines, puppet shows, and you might find yourself playing pinball in an arcade room.
This is one of those must see restaurants in Denver.
