10/06/2019 - Confession: I had never been to Casa Bonita until this date. It is not that I never had any shortage of offers when living in or visiting Colorado, but I always lied and said I had been there. Nothing about it sounded like my scene. Well, a friend of mine recently had to put down her dog, and Casa Bonita is a favorite of hers, so I offered that we should go. I can now say in all honesty that I have been to Casa Bonita, and I will soon experience the gastrointestinal evacuation of Biblical proportions to prove it. (This particular memorabilia I will NOT be saving.)

Terrible food (except the sopapillas which are excellent), famous for making people sick, but I would still recommend this place to any Colorado visitor. For those who live here, it’s basically a rite of passage. Just wacky, and a lot of fun, especially for kids. You’ll want to be able to say you’ve been there. Just fill up on sopapillas instead of dinner and you’re golden.

I’d only heard about this restaurant from the South Park episode about it. I had no idea it was real until I saw this article! NOW I MUST GO!!!
