South Park Creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone are Trying To Buy Casa Bonita Restaurant in Colorado, Featured in Their Show
Tracey Parker and Matt Stone are vying to take over the iconic eatery Casa Bonita from their hit show South Park.
“We’d want to acquire Casa Bonita and handle it with respect.” Even before the epidemic, Parker told The Hollywood Reporter, “I felt that it had been neglected.
Summit Family Restaurants, the corporation that now owns Casa Bonita, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in Arizona on April 6. Parker stated that for the time being, a prospective sale is in limbo owing to pending legal processes. A contract is still being negotiated by the South Park co-creators.
Our goal is to purchase it, Parker added. “We’ll do everything we can to help. This is something we want to get right and make spectacular.”
The huge Mexican restaurant, located at 6715 W. Colfax Ave. in Lakewood, debuted in 1974 and has an arcade, cave, waterfall, and cliff divers, among other things.
Parker said the two restaurateurs, along with other Colorado restaurateurs who have not been revealed, have huge ideas for the location if it is purchased.
There has been a lot of discussion regarding the modifications that will be made in the kitchen,” Parker added. This time, we’re going to cook some pretty tasty meals. “I was already planning on expanding Black Bart’s Cave.”
South Park has made many references to Casa Bonita, a cherished childhood destination for Parker and Stone. It was the subject of a classic 2003 episode. South Park: The Fractured but Whole includes Casa Bonita as downloadable DLC in 2017.
Parker and Stone’s Casa Bonita will, of course, incorporate some South Park IP if they’re successful.
He said, “It’s just sitting there, doing nothing. As Parker stated, “It ain’t good.” ‘We’re going to purchase it,’ we declared when it seemed like Casa Bonita was closing.’ As a result, I felt like that was the pinnacle of my career.”
