Web Extras - Casa Bonita



With an incongruity seldom found outside the realm of dreams, a pink Spanish colonial edifice rises up from a strip mall on Colfax Avenue in Lakewood, a mile west of Denver. Its 85-foot bell tower, seemingly borrowed from an old church in Puerto Vallarta, casts its shadow on a shopping center’s nondescript neighboring storefronts. This is Casa Bonita, a Mexican restaurant that has been making the surreal real since 1974.
