“Great food and friendly service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

We have been customers of both the Hilo restuarant as well as the stand at Pohoiki and have always remarked at how friendly the owners are. They make excellent, healthy food accommodating any request. We highly recommend Bueno Burrito!

“Good food for a reasonable price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2012 via mobile

This is an island style Mexican fastfood joint. They are set up like a sandwich shop....you choose your choice of fresh toppings on your borito/taco besides various other entry.

Try the fish taco if you are into eating fish.

“Best Burritos on the Big Island”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Bueno Burrito has everything, great location, best food and wonderful value for money. The restaurant is pretty basic but the service is really good and the staff very friendly and helpful. Every dish we have eaten there (and we eat there regularly) has been excellent. I can't recommend it highly enough - go there and find out for yourself.

“Good food. Good price.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2012

We ordered pork tacos and cilantro rice. Every thing was great. For Hilo the price wasn't bad at all. The service was fast and the server courteous.

“Overpriced version of a senior sams”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2012

I dont know how these guys stay in business as the food is terrible and lacks flavor. If you like plain salty meat and burnt beans Bueno is for you. With two new mexican food places open in Hilo as of 2012 Lucys and Cafe Luna this place is doomed to return to the roadside for good
