Remember Casa Bonita? It has re-opened and Jason and I decided to take our girls there after church today. We have so many fond memories of it. We got out of church early, so we had to sit in the car for about 20 min. while waiting for it to open. Jason thought it would be a good idea at that point to get online and look at the reviews. They were terrible! One person likened the food to dog food. Another person said it was like eating in a dingy dungeon. Several reviews started with "OMG" or "Ewwww!" So, by the time we could go in, we were totally worked up and freaked out, but had already told the girls about this great place we were going to eat at. No other customers were there yet and as we walked through the doors, we could clearly hear a walkie talkie with some lady yelling that customers had just walked through the door and why was it unlocked it so early. We soldiered on to the food line. And..........it really wasn't that bad. I would still totally recommend it. Sure, the food is the same quality as a frozen tv dinner, but so is Chuck E Cheese pizza. You don't go for the food, you go for the fun. And Casa Bonita still has the magic. We had a great time just walking around remembering the cave room and the waterfall and watching the monkey riding a bike on a string. The neighborhood was a bit sketchy and the game room lacked heat and smelled like poo, but our girls didn't seem to notice or mind that either. Ha ha. All in all, it was a pretty good time.
