CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Multiple media reports out of Colorado suggest that fans of the strange combination of cliff diving and sopapillas can rest easy — Casa Bonita is a single signature away from being sold for $3.1 million to Trey Parker and Matt Stone.
This news comes six weeks after “South Park” co-creators Parker and Stone held a virtual press conference with Gov. Jared Polis announcing their plans to buy the legendary restaurant. According to Denverite.com, the Colorado natives have officially agreed to buy the iconic Mexican eatery from bankrupt owners Summit Family Restaurants.
Documents were filed Monday in bankruptcy court. Stone and Parker are purchasing Casa Bonita under the name “The Beautiful Opco.” The agreement, first reported by Westword, still needs a final sign-off from Judge Michael E. Romero. Summit Family Restaurants will also have to pay its landlord $900,000 to settle its debts.
The restaurant has been closed since March of last year, and the owners filed for bankruptcy this past spring.
The “South Park” creators said they had plans to dive off the restaurant’s famous waterfall and improve the notoriously bad food.
