Taco...Bueno?


So, people are all freakin' out about Taco Bueno coming to the ATX, and we are all like, what? We may be a little behind the curve on this one, but rest assured we will be journalizing this joint to see what all the fuss is about as soon as it opens.

Yours in pastor,

Bah. Don't waste your time. It's a chain store opening stores in the suburbs (Mopac+Slaughter, 2 Round Rock stores, and 1 in New Braunfels

If you must journalize on this store, I think you should do a chain-store shootout. I look forward to a scathing review alongside similarly scathing reviews for Chipotle, Taco Bell, Taco Cabana, and Baja Fresh.

The fare at this place is inedible. Don't bother.

taco bueno is like eating taco c, crapping it out, then forming it into something that tastes akin to taco bell.

Its true. I had this in Lubbock where the chain has spread like the plague. Its disgusting...worse that Taco Bell.

I don't know what y'all are talking about. Taco Bueno is SOOOO much better than Taco Bell because their food is made from fresh ingredients. Taco Bell reconstitutes everything with water.

Now I'm not saying that Taco Bueno is better than your favorite sit down mexican restaurant, but when it comes to fast food mexican, it is the best.

yes, bueno is always better than bell and taco C is terrible. they don't even have tacos there. They have crapper balls of grease wrapped in a tortilla or "higher quality" hard crust meat with no condiments/toppings wrapped in a tortilla (for 6 bucks LOL, fajita taco combo). the only thing taco bell does right is soft drinks.

definitely - when it comes to fast food bueno is best

The major difference between Bueno and the other chains is the freshly made salsa (Much better then Taco Cabana)! Also, its cheaper then taco C.

I'd have to agree.. Taco Bueno is WAY better than Taco Bell or Taco C. These guys actually use real / fresh ingredients that would resemble something in a normal kitchen. Taco Bell may have been able to compete when they still made their meat,beans,taco shells, ect fresh daily (yes they actually once did this), but no more. Like the anonymous poster above stated, it's not a sit down mexican or tex/mex restaurant, it's fast food.. but it's about as good as a fast food taco chain gets.

You people are some serious haters. Bueno is the best fast Mex there is. You need to go back with an open mind and give the beans a chance!

Here's the diff. between Taco Bueno & Taco Bell:
Bueno beans: made from scratch, simmered al night
Bell beans: made from powder and water
Bueno beef: cooked and sesoned in store mostly to order
Bell beef: frozen pre-seasoned, pre-cooked, then boiled in a bag
Bueno chips: made fresh all day every day
Bell chips: shipped in large plastic bags from supplier
Bueno Guac: made fresh every day from fresh avocados
Bell Guac: processed, comes in tubs from supplier

I'm sitting here at luchtime craving some Bueno food. I live in a town full of great mexican food restaurants (San Angelo) but no Taco Bueno! Everyone here, where there is a good mexican food place on every corner,misses the Taco Bueno that closed down. You folks that don't like Bueno must be from New York City! P.S. Try the cheesecake chimichangas--ohhhhh!

Well I happen to work at both taco bell and taco bueno, and I would choose bueno over bell anyday, everyhting at bueno we make fresh, I actually get fresh veggies for everything, i made the taco meat myself, the beans, i made myself, the tortilla chips and taco sheels and everything is fried there at the store all day everyday, everything is fresh, at bell, everything came sent to us pre made and pre cooked, and just like they said above everything at bell is JUST ADD WATER. I admit that bell has more variety, but everything at bueno is quality and fresh!!!

If you don't like Bueno then you don't like yourself

People who prefer taco bell to taco beuno have never been there. Gimme a break, their stuff is far less processed than taco bell's. Taco Bell's motto should be "Run for the terlet"
