It's easy to buy into the hype around restaurants, entertainment, etc. When it comes to food though, when people get you all jacked up and excited to try it, it's a huge letdown when it doesn't quite meet the expectation.

When Casa Bonita was purchased by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, one of the biggest hopes was that the food would be improved, along with a refurbishment of this Colorado icon.

As far as the building refurbishment goes, they nailed it. Hit the ball completely out of the park. The food though, that's a different story.

Colorado's Casa Bonita Food Review. Worth The Money?

Colorado's Casa Bonita Worth The Money? Full Review With Pix

Yes, Casa Bonita is back, and better than ever. It's truly remarkable how they were able to re-do so much, yet it still felt just as "homey" as it has all these years. They didn't take away the things that made Casa Bonita the Colorado, and now the worldwide icon that it is. Let me start with the look... It looks fantastic. They nailed the upgrades and renovations. The service was phenomenal. The entertainment was fantastic as well. The food? We'll get to that... But allow us to take you inside and give you a sneak peek at the Colorado Icon that is, Casa Bonita!

This Local Colorado Mexican Restaurant Is One Of The Best

After opening in 2008, Las Palmeras Mexican Restaurant has become one of the area's very best locally-owned places to get delicious, and authentic Mexican food. We found this place by accident years ago while driving hungry down Main Street in Longmont and have been regulars ever since. The owner, the staff, the food, and the drinks are all top notch and that's what makes this one of Colorado's top choices for delicious Mexican food.
