Today I am in Denver, Colorado. And so, like any self-respecting South Park fan, I am planning a pilgrimage to the famed Casa Bonita. The Mexican restaurant was popularized in season seven of the irreverent animated cartoon, as the fantasy destination of the childish, scheming Eric Cartman. Like others, he was lured by cliff divers, a mariachi band and other dramatic distractions.
The food is absolutely awful, apparently. This is the uniform opinion of every source I have consulted, in person and online. The “cheese” is especially bad – and there’s lots of it. So, my brother and I are needless to say not going for the food – although I’m intrigued by anything that people say is that bad – but the experience. Will have to post about it tonight or tomorrow:)
