Casa Bonita (Lakewood)
Casa Bonita is one of those Mexican restaurants that you go to for the atmosphere, and not so much the cuisine. It doesn’t receive rave reviews in the food department, but if you like Mariachi bands, gorillas chasing you, cliff divers diving off of cliffs, caves, palm trees, hidden grottos and darn good Sopapillas, you HAVE to go and check it out. It’s just one of those Denver attractions you have to try at least once in your life!
If death and mortuaries are your thing, you may enjoy a meal at Linger…It’s actually known for it’s amazing menu and drinks, and was once a mortuary that housed the body of notorius William Frederick “Buffalo Bill” Cody! Instead of hiding the building’s macabre past, the restaurant owners decided to embrace it, starting with the iconic sign. They’ve embraced it’s theme and offer menus shaped like coffins, water served in formaldehyde bottles, and a church pew that serves as a host stand! We must also mention it has an amazing outdoor deck that has stunning views of the city…
