Dear God I don’t know where to begin. The only reason I’m giving it 2 stars is because it looked like the kids in there enjoyed it. If I had children it would be a place I would take them once for the experience. As a 24 year old however, it was legitimately horrible. The food was disgusting. I was told by many other people to not expect great things in terms of food, so my expectations were already low, and it was WAY worse than I thought it was going to be. They serve it to you on a gross cafeteria tray that you carry to your table yourself, and the quality is the equivalent of jail food. I’m from Detroit and Detroit jail food almost tastes better than whatever they served me. I swear to god it was that bad. The staff was SO rude. The guy at the front who takes your order was the worst. People like him shouldn’t be greeters in customer service. I should have left after talking to him. The “acts” are terrible, they are unoriginal and you can’t hear anything even right next to them. The divers are nothing special. The place was dirty as well. And smelled HORRIBLE. Like incredibly strong pool water and mildew. Our waitress was very kind and she was the only perk of the experience. I was told by so many people how bad this place was but had to go because my friend has lived here forever and has never been. Wouldn’t recommend it for the experience. Waste of money and disgusting.

Not worth the long wait to get in. Waitress was nice but too busy. Food was cold and no better than fast food restaurants. Had to keep asking for drinks, food, etc. A manager and an employee were arguing in the dining area. Employee walked away and the manager kept following her and yelling. He followed her into the back area and we could hear them arguing. Lasted over 5 minutes. Restrooms were horrible. No toilet paper I. The ladies room. When my daughter asked a male employee who was cleaning the men's restroom, the reply was "not my area" and just blew her off. Overall not a good experience and will not return.

I came to Denver with my husband for a work conference and I had some time to kill with our kids during his meetings. Casa Bonita was heaven sent. This place is magical. We loved every minute of it. The food was good, but it won’t change your life. Come to be transported and entertained. My kids loved it and I pretty much had to drag them out because they didn’t want to leave.

It's pretty much mandatory to go here at some point if you live in Denver area but beware. The food is positively scary and has been for a very long time. Everyone we know that has been there before agreed. The shows are cheesy and poorly done, bad costumes, dull, uninspiring. Our server was great though! I feel sorry for the employees, the owner should be ashamed that they have let this famous landmark become so terrible. They need a new investor to throw a million or so into a remodel and make it the famous destination that it should be.

I had a good time here with some friends after playing some frisbee golf. I would say to go for the experience and great service, maybe not so much for the food. It was decent, but seems to be the way keep their fun activities and ambience going more than their claim to fame. I got lucky and only had a half full line, be sure to add in a little time waiting in line. Overall a fun time!
