In 2003 South Park aired an episode named “Casa Bonita” about a Colorado area restaurant of the same name. The place was presented as a somewhat over the top Mexican themed Chuck E. Cheese sort of establishment featuring cliff divers and fire jugglers.
In 2008, I took a business trip to Denver and (to my surprise) I learned that THE PLACE WAS REAL.
Everything from the episode was there an, in person, the place felt like a low rent EPCOT attraction. The biggest let down, though, was the lack of South Park merchandise. You’d think someone would have taken advantage of that.
Other note: we ordered the chicken tacos and the beef tacos… AND THEY TASTED EXACTLY THE SAME.
Anyway, while we were there I took a couple of videos from our table of the (in)famous cliff divers and other entertainment. Enjoy.
