Bueno Y Sano is tasty, quick, affordable, and certainly fresh. Everything is made to order and cooked up while you wait. There is a comfortable dining area and you can get free refills at the soda fountain. I am a fan of their quesadillas, and unusual Thai burrito.

A good mainstay with delicious food, tried the thai burrito for the first time with steak and it was delicious, fresh, and wonderful. Enjoy :)

My husband and I were told that we HAD TO eat here while on our vacation and so we ordered it out one night and brought it back to our hotel. We got burritos with seitan. That's something you don't see on the menu at Chipotle! It was very filling and very good. Highly recommend!!! I wish I took a... More

Bueno is our go to restaurant for Mexican food. It's always fresh and delicious! The simple black bean soft taco is amazing - never mind the football sized burritos.

We stopped here while in Amherst to visit colleges. I ordered the Thai Burrito with tofu. It was quite tasty, with just enough spice, and great that it was vegan. My complaint about it, which I often have about burritos, is that it was not hot. The inside was room temperature to cool. Service was very fast, but I would... More

If you like Mexican food, it is very reasonable and good here. The burritos are huge! You can watch them make it right in front of you. It's not the most comfortable place and you have to order and get your own food. It feels very collegiate. There is a bulletin board with all sorts of neighborhood listings.Visitors seem mostly...

FRESH burrito ingredients; fast, pleasant service even when there's a line. Reasonable pricing. Salsa bar is good - take away what you want - steps away from Sweetser Park to eat al fresco.

Massive and yummy burritos and friendly hard-working staff make this a go-to lunch spot for locals. One of our favorites for fast food.
