This Denver institution has been around for 40 years. It remains popular as the venue will keep kids and adults entertained with some kind of show every fifteen minutes or so – from daring dives off the 30-foot cliff, musicians and puppet shows to an old-school arcade. The décor is Mexican meets rainforest with a Mexican menu. Kids will be able to order their favorites from the kids menu at $5.09 which gives them a choice of cheese enchiladas with refried beans and rice, chicken strips with fries or hamburger and cheese with fries. There is plenty for adults like the All-You-Can-Eat Deluxe Dinner at $15.29 that includes a crispy taco, two enchiladas (beef or chicken), Mexican rice, refried beans, guacamole and sour cream, chips, queso, salsa and their famous sopaipillas with honey.
Although it may not be gourmet food the place is popular because of the entertainment value. Patrons reckon the sopaipillas – little circles of fried dough – something like a donut are heavenly and best mopped up with honey and ice cream.
