This place is well worth the wait if they are busy! The tacos with the corn soft shells are great with chicken or pork. Mini or large chimichangas are great too. Love the fresh cilantro and delicious jalapeno green sauce. I go here at least once a week.

Buenavista is my spot for quick and delicious Mexican food. It is always fresh, fast and good. The owner and his family very friendly and attentive. Great food every time.

Perhaps you will agree with me after trying their food. They produce the best Mexican food that I have ever eaten.

We love the Buenavista! Have been going here for years! Service is always great! Owned by a very nice family who all work together to make great food! We love the steak tacos, mini chicken chimi's and chille relleno. Fresh homemade salsa and jalapeño sauce is amazing!! Our kids love their food too! We usually get takeout but there is... More

If you don't mind sitting in a worn out, uncomfy, hole in the wall while eating great authentic Mex food, then this is the place. Cheap eats, awesome! Good location for us, too. Nothing fancy but a great place to grab some tacos or giant burritos with all the fixings. And don't worry, they admit that it's not the fanciest... More

I really like their food- I've only had their food truck, but they are always busy. The food is delicious and the service is always fast and friendly.

Lived in West Allis 3 years before finally trying it. Beans and rice were delicious, and that is it. Had a gordita dinner, meat was dry and flavorless. One chicken, one pork, NOT good. I guess if you've never had decent Mexican food then it's just fine.

Reasonable prices and good food. Staff is friendly and helpful. I had tacos AL pastor with rice and beans. Portions were plentiful. The building is a bit tired and small.
