Default Casa Bonita is a must see

Do not forget about Casa Bonita in Denver. Kids will LOVE IT!!!!! I mean where can you go to see folks diving really high into a earthy looking pool. Lot's of other kid stuff going on. A must go!! Food service is cafeteria style as well as taste, but it's for the "children" now isn't it....LOL

Here's a description of their store copied from "Wikipedia". It features strolling mariachis, flame jugglers, and a 30-foot waterfall with cliff divers. Casa Bonita is designed to be an entertaining place for children and adults alike, although it is obvious that the children are the primary audience. It also has a small puppet theater, a "haunted tunnel" called Black Bart's Cave, an arcade with a large skee-ball room, and a magic theater. The building is over 52,000 square feet and has seating for approximately 4,000 customers.

Here's a link to their website: Casa Bonita - the fun Mexican restaurant in Denver

I would definitely agree w/ the suggestions of Poor Richard's and Gunther Toody's. Also, Red Robin is very family oriented & has a location on Powers (near Target) and one at the Citadel Mall.

I have 2 children under age 3 - and while my 1 year old is not the neatest eater, the kids are reasonably quiet and well behaved when we are out. My 3 year old is old enough to be know that we use quiet voices in a restaurant, sit on our bottoms, etc. Children have different limits for how long they can manage to sit still, be quiet etc...but I believe it is possible to enjoy dinner out as a family.

We keep dining out pleasant by

1. mainly choosing family friendly restaurants
2. Eating on the early side for dinner so the children aren't ravenous or exhausted
3. Picking up take-out from places where the dining conditions might not be suitable for young children.

We're fans of the Black Bear Diner on Academy. It's a small homey chain from CA with good food in large portions and a nice kid's menu.
