This may be the kitschiest restaurant you’ll ever go to, but it’s fun and that’s the big attraction. Denver kids celebrate at least one birthday at Casa Bonita—and for good reason. The restaurant is more about the entertainment than the cuisine. Kids love the 30-foot-tall waterfall, cliff divers, fire jugglers, mariachi bands and pirate cave. Trust us, you have to see this place to believe it. If you're traveling with the family this is one of the best places to eat in Denver. The food is not much to write home about, but it will fill you up. Go for one of the Deluxe Plates and you can eat as much as you want—or dare. But everyone's favorite dish is the sopapillas, sweet pillow-shaped Mexican pastries. You just bite off a little corner, pour some honey inside, and enjoy. Don't eat too many though—these things are addictive and you may end up finding that your jeans don’t fit quite right afterward. Be prepared to wait in line if you go on a summer evening. This place is popular with tourists and locals.
