You get so much food! The burritos are huge and really good. The chips and dip are good, I think they're both homemade. If you go, definitely consider splitting a plate with someone because there is literally so much food. I've gone with my friends...More

Whenever I want a quick bite I always think of Bueno. Their burritos are consistently satisfying! They can be pretty busy, but they are good at handling a rush.

Huge burritos and servings. Cheap meals and fast service. Local owners who have opened up a couple of other locations. I recommend the BBQ chicken burrito or quesadillas.

We liked it so much that we returned the next day. All the ingredients are freshly made when you order them, I had the bowl my kids had the quesadillas. The rice, beans, cheese everything was very good. The guacamole was excellent too.

The Tex-Mex Goddess of freshest, finest, most fairly priced, "fast-food" place in town. I love this place, everytime I'm in the area, I've been religiously taking my rounds to Bueno Y Sano since 2012. If I have a bad day, I spoil myself here.

Nice tastes and great fresh fast burritos. Different from the chains and better. I also liked that they provided real plates and utensils, not the cheap throw-away stuff for those dining in.
