You Deserve Tex-Mex Made Fresh

You Deserve Bueno®

Unlike the large national Mexican QSR chains, Taco Bueno prepares fresh Tex-Mex in our real kitchens. That’s a positioning – and a franchise opportunity – unlike other Mexican restaurant QSR.

From the beginning back in 1967, in Abilene, TX, Taco Bueno has been making Tex-Mex food right. We slow-simmer beans overnight and cook chips and taco shells fresh every day.

Our fresh salsa bar features home-made pico de gallo  plus our Original and Firehouse Salsas. As other Mexican QSRs have taken shortcuts, like powdered beans and factory-made chips, Bueno has continued to make  Tex-Mex . We make guacamole fresh daily from five simple ingredients.

We use all white meat chicken and our ground beef is fresh. Nothing but the highest quality real cheddar and pepper-jack cheeses are served.

Our menu features Tex-Mex Platters that compete on quality and price with casual dining.

And for the value driven guest, we have a great selection of offerings. We offer a variety of low priced items, all fast, convenient and available in our drive-thru.

Need something sweet? Taco Bueno offers a great line of frozen beverages, crispy cinnamon chips and our award winning lineup of signature Cheesecake Chimichangas.

One reason we can offer such high quality at a low price is that we serve our customers so quickly. We complete most orders, drive-thru or dine-in, within ONE minute, which keeps capacity high and prices low. Our highly efficient training programs are second to none in equipping managers and team members to run a store smoothly.

In addition to a speedy drive-thru, we also provide a comfortable and contemporary environment for a great dine-in experience. Unlike most fast-food restaurants, our dining areas are separated from the lobby. They feature warm colors and finishes, quality lighting and full-sized tables and booths, plus subtle dividers to control the traffic flow from the counter to the beverage and salsa bars.

There’s simply no other option for customers who want casual dining quality at fast-food prices and convenience.

Incredible taste at a great price, conveniently served in a comfortable environment, adds up to a truly unique selling proposition. And when supported by effective advertising campaigns, it all adds up to a very strong brand. 

Stepping beyond advertising, we have a large, loyal and somewhat ravenous fan club affectionately known as “Buenoheads™”. Perhaps it’s our proprietary menu items like our MexiDips & Chips®, Big Freakin Taco, Muchacos® or our ever-popular Wholotta Platter™.  Over one hundred fifty thousand    fans follow us on Facebook and  Twitter, our fans visited Taco Bueno, on average, over three times a month.

As you can see, Taco Bueno delivers on both the need for quality and the need for convenience. Why go anywhere else?
