Step through those doors and you’ll find yourself in what could very well be the most unique Mexican restaurant in America: Casa Bonita.

You’ll dine next to cliff divers leaping from a 30-foot indoor waterfall and watch as an employee in gorilla costume runs by as part of a live show.

But that iconic spot is just one of the eateries from Colorado that have left a mark not just on this state, but far beyond as well.
