Rumors have been swirling around Colorado that the most iconic Mexican restaurant in all the land maybe closed for good... We've learned that's not the case, but it likely won't be opening anytime soon either!
There is no timetable for when owners will re-open Casa Bonita, but they tell Denver7 that despite the rumors out there, the West Colfax restaurant is not going away.
Still, Casa Bonita is not faring well amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Our plan is to open the business as soon as we believe it’s legally possible,” Summit Family Restaurants President Bob Wheaton said.
The president of the company that owns this unique Colorado landmark wants to be open, but admits it may take time.
“Casa Bonita has been around 50 years and we’re hopeful that it’s going to be around for another 50 years,” Wheaton said.
One thing Denver7 was also told by the owners at Casa Bonita is the need for additional financing to survive. That is something we've heard from a number of places. They know the road ahead is challenging, but they're optimistic to have the attraction back open when they can.
