Casa Bonita is back open for free tours!
I think everyone in the Denver Metro Area was saddened at the thought that our most beloved sopapilla slinging headquarters could be closed forever. I think the owners now know that we want more sopapillas, please! So, starting now… they are opening back up to give us all free tours of this incredible space that we have all come to know and love.
During this free tour, you will learn all of the details about every nook and cranny of this unique space, including the waterfall and the booth that became famous on Southpark and is now known as the “Cartman Table”. A recent Westword article states: “The tours offer fans a chance to fully explore the 52,000-square-foot facility with a staff member sharing the history and urban legends connected to Casa Bonita. Chiquita, the gorilla-suit-clad character, may not be present, nor will there be any cliff-diving performances. But the tours still give people the chance to visit Black Bart’s Cave and traverse the various rooms featuring quasi-Mexican, Spanish and Moorish architecture, all without bumping into one of the 1,200 diners that the restaurant can pack in when operating at full capacity. And those who aren’t necessarily fans of the Mexican cuisine at Casa Bonita needn’t worry: The kitchen is still closed.”
They are giving free tours, every hour on the hour starting at 11 am until they close each day.
