Hidden Gem in Hilo

We were looking for a quick bite while passing through Hilo. Bueno Burrito is located about a mile from the airport, near the Hilo Farmer's Market. The restaurant is small. There are only four tables inside and a few out on the sidewalk. My g/f and I both ordered the Hula Burrito which consists of... read more

My husband heard about the quality of the food and went to get a group of us some lunch as we just arrived in Hilo that afternoon. When he delivered it to us, he said he was amazed how every ingredient was made fresh by the owner. It was by far the best burrito I have ever eaten - and... More

Bueno Burrito 301 Keawe St., Hilo, Hawai'i Every once in a while, I search for “Mexican restaurants in Hilo” and until now have had my hopes dashed. There's one on Kamehameha Avenue whose name reminds one of a corned-beef sandwich that's been there for years, living off of tourists who don't know any better. I tried it once, and then... More

My wife and I ate at Bueno Burrito during our baby moon and found it to be quite good. The burritos are fresh and tasty. The owner is friendly and enthusiastic, though he speaks quickly and has a thick accent - we only understood half of what he said. But don't worry, the burritos are fantastic.

Stumbled across this place - it doesn't look appetising from outside but the food is excellent - the owner is a character & will make you exactly what you want, which is great with kids - I had the wet burrito which was superb & well priced - grab a seat outside & enjoy - just remember that you can...

Went back twice before reviewing again. It was the real deal. The hole-in-the wall with the absolute best wet burrito ever. The flavors unfold with every bite. Sure you can get a less expensive burrito at Lucy's, but you'll get less taste, more filler and less satisfaction. This is an outstanding burrito by any standard. Make it wet!

We were famished after doing the eco skyline zip tour! We decided to go into downtown Hilo after our excursion and we could not decide where to eat. We found, what looked like a hole in the wall, burrito place and decided to drop in. BEST DECISION WE MADE! The food is freakin' delicious! I had the Hula Burrito bowl... More

Really good mexican food with good ingredients made fresh. Not fancy (order at the counter), but good food in large portions. Friendly service makes this street side place a real star. You get your money's worh here, and I am a repeat customer.

I was wandering around Hilo looking for something affordable and tasty, when I stumbled upon this little gem. George makes a seriously good burrito and will tell you some delightful tales while he is working his magic. Great salsas, solid value, an excellent place for vegans or vegetarians to check out. I went back to Hilo for a few reasons,... More
