In 1967, we opened our doors in Abilene, TX to share fresh, authentic Mexican food. Now, almost 52 years later, while the other guys have turned to packaged and processed food, we’ve stayed true to the roots by crafting authentic recipes in each of our kitchens. We do things the Taco Bueno Menu, and you’re sure to taste the difference.
Fresh Prep. Reheating isn’t cooking. That’s why, unlike the other guys, we craft each recipe in our kitchens just before it hits your tray. Real Ingredients. You can pronounce all of our ingredients. Ground beef, grilled chicken, ripe tomatoes, fresh cilantro – is your delicious yet? Your Way – You need to love the food you consume. Make your own Bueno by customizing your order any way you’d like, or layer the flavors yourself at our fresh salsa bar.
Taco Bueno is kicking off 2018 with new menu items, including a perfected queso, inspired by loyal customers and committed fans, affectionately called Buenoheads. Taco Bueno’s Innovation Team talked Tex-Mex with 1000s of customers, meeting face-to-face with a lot of them over the last 6 months, to know what they need in great-tasting food.
“Serving the best tasting Tex-Mex to our guests is our top priority, so we believe inviting them in to the process for product development is the best way to accomplish this goal,” said Jeff Forrester, vice president of culinary and supply chain for Taco Bueno. “Without hesitation, our guests welcomed the opportunity enthusiastically.”
“We have fifty years of heritage, family and fans, and the recent results gained from customer opinions doesn’t end with menu development but will impact everything we do from now on,” said Sarah Beddoe, chief marketing officer of Taco Bueno. “2018 will probably be a really fun year for all of us to get additional involved in our local communities and continue the dialogue with customers on what is next for their Taco Bueno. We invite the feedback, our company is listening, so we are as much as the task, and so the hashtag #LetsTalkTexMex is our invitation.”
“As we looked back in time, we had been inspired by an original Taco Bueno recipe,” Forrester said. “The attributes of our original recipe match what our customers want. We have been pumped, as they are pumped – and it is darn good queso.”
Taco Bueno’s new signature queso is creamy, filled with fresh peppers and it is all natural with no artificial coloring or flavors. It can be utilized for a dip or perhaps a sauce. For a very limited time, Taco Bueno will offer you a regular-sized queso in addition to tortilla chips for $.99.
