Casa Bonita offers fans sneak peek inside restaurant ahead of reopening
May 12, 2023
Casa Bonita’s appears to be on the precipice of its highly anticipated reopening.
This week, The Denver Post learned the Lakewood restaurant and entertainment venue, famous for its sopapillas and cliff divers, has all the necessary permits from the city, county and state to be able to reopen. On Friday, members on its newsletter list received an email offering a sneak peek inside the venue.
Fans got a quick glimpse of preparation in the form of five gifs that show staff busy polishing plaques and painting some of the interior features, including a window and a tree. The plaques, according to many longtime locals we spoke with, showcase the tenures of former employees.
Casa Bonita closed in March 2020 and fans have anxiously been awaiting the reopening, especially since Matt Stone and Trey Parker, the creators of “South Park,” purchased the local landmark in September 2021.
Last December, the duo announced Casa Bonita would reopen in May and every day since the month started fans have been speculating about the exact date. No word on that yet, but it’s so close we can practically smell the honey-drizzled sopapillas.
