Two Premium Chilada Platters have recently been added, and are available for a limited time. The Steak Ranchero Platter has two steak enchiladas, chips, guacamole, sour cream, beans, and rice. The Triple Chilada Platter includes a steak, chicken, and beef enchiladas, with chips, guacamole, sour cream, beans, and rice. Don't forget, they also have breakfast, smoothies, and cheesecake chimichangas.
Gone are the days of 10 tacos for 3 bucks. The 59, 79, 99 menu is no more. What is 2010's best imitation? It's the 3 for 2 deal at Taco Bueno. As the cliché goes, "For a limited time only," Bueno is offering any 3 items on their "Party" menu for $2.00. These items include: Party Tacos, Party Burritos, Taco Roll-ups, Chips & Salsa, and Bean& Cheese Tacos. Three items from this menu is just about the right portion for an adult lunch.
One of the more unique things about Taco Bueno is the way it serves its salsa. In the drive thru, they put it in small plastic cups. There is not a choice of hotness (Mild, Hot, Fire), but it does taste fresh, and it's actual salsa, not taco sauce. Inside the store, they have a salsa bar. Here you can find a green tomatillo salsa, regular salsa, peppers, and other miscellaneous condiments (depending on location). Another practice that sets Taco Bueno apart from the competition, is the chili sauce applied to their bean burritos. It does contain meat. So, vegetarians beware.
There are two Taco Bueno locations in Grand Prairie: I-20 at Great Southwest, and Highway 360 at Post and Paddock. The staff at both locations are consistently friendly, quick, and accurate.
