SO GOOD! We hadn't been here in a few years and so glad we came back. Cheesy, delicious Mexican food, just what you'd expect. Service was fantastic, we had a reservation and were sat pretty quickly, food came out promptly.
This is a favorite my son (who now lives in Seattle) likes to frequent whenever he is in town. Although the salsas were not that tasty, the rest of the food was truly spectacular. We had the veggie quesadilla, which was loaded with cheese and veggies, and a mahi mahi fish tacos with a side salad. All fresh and yummy. Highly recommended the spicy ranch dressing, which is blended with the spicy habanero salsa, which was also on the side for the quesadilla. Nice touch. Everyone loved the special blue margaritas in honor of the Bronco game. They gave a nice pour for the tequila on the rocks we enjoy, as well. Quite affordable, dandy food. Certainly worth going out of your way for a visit, but if you want quiet ambiance, you won't find that here. It's a sports bar. Be prepared for that kind of atmosphere!
Delicious, authentic Mexican food at a great price! Margarita special was outstanding, too. Loved that the manager came around to ask us how we were enjoying our meal.
Nothing totally special. Good bar menu, not the greatest food menu. Not bad though.
Lost some of its especial. Parking was too tight. Food,service, et al was good. Live nearby & want Mexican great place but its no longer drive across town outstanding.
Been around for 50 years because it's so good and the personnel take good care of you!
Great food as usual
Denver institution/- like that you can get a Rez for a large party and they are fine letting you linger
Great neighborhood restaurant. Been that way for the 30 years we’ve been going here. Food is good and service is great.
Food was just OK. Hard to believe that this place has been around for so many years.
This was our first visit and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
All four in my party thought our meals were delicious.
I recommend the steak chimichanga to my friend since the is the only item I've ordered in the lat 25 years going to the Bonnet. My friend loved it and wants to return on his next visit. I would tell you that the mild red salsa is different-I've been used to more of the chip dipping salsa served at the table but the red sauce served with the chimi was more tomato-like and not so appealing to me....my friend liked it though....
I found the food to be average. Nothing special. My pork tamale was very good. My cheese enchilada was not, the texture of the tortilla was wrong, like paper somehow. The cheese enchilada had ad a red sauce on it that was very plain.
Our waitress was outstanding. Save yourself and do not order the shrimp cocktail you can do much better for the price someplace else. The ceviche was different but good.
Really really hot. Not sure that the air conditioner was on.
Food used to be more authentic, rice dried out, cheese not fully melted, chicken in burrito had no seasoning, sauces kinda bland. Only chille relleno and guac tostada like i remember, but if the sauces you smother with it affects everything. Green chile not good at all. Oh well the memories are good! 😢
We took friends to the Blue Bonnet who had never eaten there before and they were as pleased with the food and service as we have been. Love the food and atmosphere!
The Bluebonnet never disappoints. We stopped in for a quick bite, thinking that we'd split an entree because neither of us was really hungry. But how do you peruse the menu without finding more than one temptation? We both opted to order full entrees -- veggie tacos and an amazing mango chicken salad that I'm still thinking about.
There Queso is delicious! I love the decor and the customer service was superior!
Solid Mexican fare. Food was very good, not extraordinary, but I would go here again if I was in the area. Perfect Margarita was really good. I liked that they served refried beans with the chips and salsa, though the chips seemed to be taco shells that they broke in half and didn't have a lot of flavor. Had the combo plate with a smothered carnitas burrito, chicken enchilada and crispy relleno. All were good, carnitas was the best part of it, nice big chunks of pork. Green chili was so-so, no heat. Sat in the bar area, was clean and fun atmosphere. Service was very good and friendly. One small thing: the silverware is flimsy. Could hardly cut through the crispy relleno with the fork. Maybe invest in some sturdier silverware?
Tammy our server was wonderful. We showed up for our reservation with three extra people but everyone was awesome about it. Good food, good price!
The food was tasty and had plenty left over for a tasty supper. Service was very quick, polite, friendly. Hadn't been there in decades, so was pleasantly surprised overall.
My girlfriend took my kids and I out for my birthday. The service was exceptional. The food was solid as ever. A great casual spot.
First time diner that needs a gluten free meal. I’m
Celiac. The Blue Bonnet was very careful with my meal. I brought a lovely lady and her children to eat there. Our table was set up in
Advance with kids menus, drinks and gluten free chips & salsa already in place when we arrived. Excellent service. I highly recommend the Blue Bonnet Cafe!
Con: The margaritas were weak...
Pro: Love the gluten free options and how knowledgeable the staff is concerning GF options.
Always fun and good food👍
Went for Mother’s Day. It’s hard to find authentic Mexican food in Denver. While better than others, still was lacking in authenticity. Don’t get me wrong, the food was very good. And my mom was pleased. Margaritas were best thing that night.
Had Mother’s Day dinner with my family. The restaurant has been a family favorite for a very long time. We always enjoy our experiences and the food!!
Why not have a Sunday brunch ? My meal was very good but the Saturday brunch burrito was excellent, but not available.
Staff is friendly, efficient and fast! Food is always great.
Food has gone down in quality. Service is good though.
Food was oddly bland - all the components of tasty food were there but there was no flavor. Chips were served cold which was disappointing.
Been coming here for 30 years, one of my faves. Food is always good and their table salsa is the best. Great for after a movie, ballgame, zoo or museum. Informal and kid friendly.
We had a 7:00 reservation and arrived at 6:55pm. We checked in at the hosted desk only to be scolded by the host that our reservation was a “half hour ago!” I was shocked to be greeted this way, especially since I had an email to prove that our reservation was at 7:00pm not 6:30pm - and I offered to show the email as evidence. The host was not interested in seeing the email - just kept saying that it was in the computer for 6:30pm. We won’t return to dine at Blue Bonnet, even though we have gone there for years. There are too many choices in Denver to be treated so rudely and not even be offered an apology!
This is a Denver standard for good Mexican food
We arrived 15 minutes prior to our reservation and our table was ready and waiting. Great service, great food and drinks.
Margarita flights are awesome. Love their guac and queso. Really great food and reasonable prices.
Great and friendly staff.
Why do I have to make this so long
Used to be our favorite Mexican restaurant sinceI was a kid, but has steadily gone down hill last 5 or 6 years in terms of food quality.
How perfect to lunch at Blue Bonnet before enjoying American Mariachi at the DCPA. Two of my favorites - great Mexican food and theater! The food was delicious, especially the Brunch Pork Posole Stew and Crispy Relleno. Unfortunately, the Crispy Taco's shell stopped being crispy ... it became soggy. Over all though, a beautiful afternoon! It was also nice being able to make a reservation on line - very easy!
