At Taco Bueno, it's always been about doing things the right way. It started in 1967, when our founder opened his first restaurant, using the freshest ingredients, in Abilene Texas. Still today, we do it right. From boiling raw pinto beans overnight to re-fry the next morning, to 100% fresh ground beef, real cheddar cheese and salsas made from scratch. Buenoheads can taste the difference. See and taste the difference for yourself.
