We were out and about and decided we wanted to have lunch out. Ended up at this restaurant as they were listed in our nav system when searching for nearby Mexican restaurants. We were not disappointed. Loved the decor for how colorful it was. My...husband had the steak and chicken fajitas and I chose the chorizo alambre. I have had the alambre dish before at other restaurants but this was by far the best I have ever had. And my husband loved his fajitas. The portions were generous as well. We will be back very soon.More

This is hands-down one of the best Mexican food places in the area. The wait staff has always been very friendly and helpful and the food is excellent. We’ve tried several dishes here and have always found them to be delicious. This has quickly become...a go-to spot for us.More

We have eaten at the Buena Vista often. The owner is very friendly. The food is excellent and it's a BYO so it's inexpensive. We have never had a bad meal there. Highly recommended.

Went here for a dinner with my wife as a change of pace from El Limon. It was a Friday night and it was busy, but not slammed. Service was slow and the kitchen was even slower. It seemed like they didn't know what they...were doing in the front of the house. Food was only mediocre. I was disappointed.More

Great Central American atmosphere located in Malvern, Pa. My son ordered the Carnita Chimichanga and absolutely loved it. I ordered the Alambre mix of shrimp and chicken ...DELICIOUS!!!!! Very generous portions were served. Having traveled to Mexico, the taste was truly authentic. Our server, Angel...was very pleasant and attentive. This restuarant is highly recommended.More

Buena Vistas is one of 3 Mexican restaurants my coworkers and I frequent for lunch and dinner. The owner, waiters and waitresses are very attentive and don't mind us hosting our beer tastings there. The enchiladas are spectacular along with the Puntas Con Nopales. My...4 star rating is based on the prices and lack of complimentary chips and salsa that you'll find with other local establishments.More

Went for lunch with a colleague, who held herself out as a sort of a Mexican food aficionado. The menu said that I was served carne asada. What arrived on a plate, however, was grilled shoe leather, tough, unseasoned, and generally flavorless. I am no...Mexican food aficionado. I do however know beef and I cannot endorse the quality of the carne asida.More

Went to meet some friends for dinner and we normally look for BYOBs. I hadn't been here for some time. It looks like they redecorated the place. The chairs etc. were very colorful and the entire dining room was pleasant to look at. We were...a party of 5 and our food came out fairly quickly. I can only speak directly for my food, it was very good. I ordered the the three enchilada dish with 3 different flavors. All were good along with the mole sauce. The other plates in the party went back empty, so they must have enjoyed the food as well. I would recommend eating here.More

Besides the fact that they have no kids menu, if you try and split an adult meal the charge you $2.00 for each item you split for your kids. Add the fact that they seated us in a pool of water and you quickly do...one thing, leave. They didn't even serve chips and salsa at all, joke.More
