Casa Bonita In Denver, Colorado Is Now Open. Here's How To Get In

Colorado is known for many things, both good and bad. One of the things that could fit on either of those lists, depending on who you ask, is Casa Bonita. Formerly part of an entertainment restaurant chain, which began in Oklahoma City in 1968, the now famous Casa Bonita opened its doors in Denver, Colorado, in 1974. Through various ownership changes over the years, the Denver restaurant continued to operate until the coronavirus pandemic of 2020 forced the restaurant to close its doors. From there, Casa Bonita eventually filed for bankruptcy in April of 2021, and the future of this historic landmark looked extremely bleak. That is, until a couple of heroes from "South Park, Colorado," came along to save the day...

Trey Parker and Matt Stone From South Park Buy Casa Bonita

Back in August of 2021, it was announced that Trey Parker and Matt Stone, who are the creators of  "South Park," had purchased and would re-open the popular Colorado landmark that their show had made relevant again, after doing an entire episode about it years back. In the video below, the South Park Boys announced in December that the re-opening would happen this month, May 2023.

Well my friends, after guessing when exactly this legendary Colorado favorite would be reopened to the public, we got the email notice that we've all been waiting for today, just in time for the long holiday weekend. If you signed up for the email updates at CasaBonitaDenver.com you should have received this email today...

So many people are trying to sign up though that I keep getting this error message...

They also posted the message on their official Instagram...

While many have publically said they'd stand in line for days to be the first one in, this is the right call. There will be bugs to work out and you need to control the crowds somehow. If they just opened the doors to anybody, the lines and crowds would have likely been uncontrollable. Remember the 13-hour wait for In-N-Out when it first opened in Colorado? I'd imagine it would be way worse than that for this historic reopening. Our friends at 9News got to check out an exclusive sneak peek and posted these videos.

Attempt to signup for their email list here and good luck, as this Colorado staple will be an extremely popular destination all summer long, as it should be. Casa Bonita is back, baby.

The atmosphere is what makes Casa Bonita such a great experience with its maze of dining areas and special features.

If you are one of the unfortunate ones who have never experienced Casa Bonita in person, I invite you to take a mini virtual tour of this famous Colorado restaurant.
