The Bueno Burger has been an item that, until recently, was only available on Throwback Thursdays and anniversaries. This is because it was an original menu item that was eventually removed from the regular menu, again, until recently.
It's an item I would always make sure to pick up when available and, lucky for us all, it is an item available all the time now on the Pick 3 for $3 menu.
Presentation is the only downside to this burger and after you taste it, that is something that can be 100% overlooked. Between the buns is Taco Bueno's taco meat with shredded cheese and their chili sauce. With a price point of only a buck*, I am not ashamed to admit that I will order six at a time (two Pick 3's with an *individual price of $1.59), eat two and save the rest for later. Bueno makes everything fresh and it shows with the burger. The bun is never hard, meat is perfectly cooked and the chili and cheese are what keeps it all together.
Even though it spent so much time as a limited time option, the Bueno Burger has staying power and I hope it sticks around for a while this time. If you are lucky enough to live near a Taco Bueno, pick up three Bueno Burgers and enjoy the hell out of them.
NOTE: I believe they are called "Taco Burgers" but "Bueno Burgers" has a better ring to it.
