We were visiting family in Boulder and took the children to Casa Bonita for lunch. Many of the people had been there previously but this was our first visit. Watch the South Park episode for an idea of this place. We had to wait in line to order our food, then stand in line to pick it up. Then we... More

Don't expect great food or a 5 star experience and you will come out with a smile on your face. I think Casa Bonita is always a great time, but you have to approach it like your getting ready to watch a cult classic B movie. It's locally famous enough that it was actually featured in an episode of South... More

Was there for a Arts meeting and they provided some food. Chips with guacamole, sopapillas, cookies, etc. Casa Bonita isn't really known for good food, but this was all right. It had been years since I've been there and for over five years they have been on a month to month lease so the place was getting really rundown. They... More

Long lines to get in and the food is abysmal. The waitstaff are fun if somewhat eclectic. The shows are pretty pathetic but our 6 year old loved it and that's why we went. If you're looking for authentic Mexican food or good dinner theater this is not the place for you. But go and you'll never forget it.

Are you a fan of South Park? Fan of greasy Mexican food? Fan of fun? Then this is the place for you! Cliff jumpers! Mariachis! Good service and some fun activities like arcade and a cave walk through. You will be singing the song Cartman songs weeks after your visit!

A tradition that goes beyond explanation. We spent three hours there with a party of 14. Six of them grandkids. They scarfed their meals and roamed around continuously. The food is Taco Bell so just order simple. It's the craziness of the place that makes it an experience.

The only reason I have this place a one star is because that's the lowest option. Outside the place is stunning, very cool. Once inside it's a whole different story. First you stand inline with a lunch tray Luke your in high school. Only to be served the food like your in high school. Food is very bad. Nothing authentic.... More

The building and entertainment are why you come here....the food is not.... except the sopaipillas, which are very tasty.

Great family fun restaurant for families with kids or even those without kids. We enjoyed this restaurant/fun house on a recent business trip. Meals were good, Fried Ice cream was excellent!! and the desserts were a treat.
