“BUENO!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

This place is ALWAYS busy. Why? They crank out some good, well priced food. With the amount of business they do, you'd think the staff would be a little unfriendly, but I've found them to be often pleasant! The food is sometimes inconsistent but always tasty.

“Be sure to count the contents of your bag before driving off.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2008

This *used* to be the best Taco Bueno anywhere - hand's down.

New management a few years ago seems to have lost that edge, but recently it is back to at least above average for a Taco Bueno.

They are pretty fascist about hair length on the employees, so the better staff is now to be found at the Taco Bell - if you like that type of food. We're not talking culinary quality at either place anyway.

But I must add, up to a few (3-5) years ago this particular Taco Bueno
was something worth travelling many miles to experience. We never failed to stop here when we still lived in Indiana. and were passing through. Wish it were the same now, but the chances of even getting an order bagged up as-ordered is now very slim.

Be sure to count the contents of your bag before driving off.

They are very stingy with the condiments (jalapenos, salsa, and onions
and will seldom give you as many as you asked for - make them wait while you count them, and then demand delivery of what you asked for.

If you order more than a few of any one item, expect to be shorted. We
often order 14 bean burritos for the family on days when we are not
eating meat. It is very common to only get 11 - 12 in the bag - and not worth the drive back to pick up the missing items So, stop and make them wait while you count, and then make them deliver what you paid for.

This place is another victim of the workforce problem in Oklahoma (poor education and low wages resulting in low performance). With the new law, the good workers (illegal Mexicans) are gone and so the wages
are rising for alternative menial jobs which compete for a competent teenager's time. It is going to get worse before it gets better.
