Taco Bueno

Hey guys, there's a cute little Texan craving some Taco Bueno...and we happen to live in Vermont now...anything similar in the North East?

I know Central Vermont isn't all that well known for it's Tex-Mex, but we did happen to have the best non-Chinese chef making Chinese food in the country, so it's at least possible.


Fire away!

I've got a hungry little girl here.

Not familiar with Taco Bueno, but Boloco may be an ok match. According to their website there is one in Hanover.

There is pretty decent Mexican to be found here, but it can take some looking.
A bit of a drive for you, but there are a couple of good places in Keene, and one recently opened in Brattleboro, but have not tried it yet.

Boloco is alright, their "fusion" burritos are good but for a classic one they're above Chipotle (which sucks in my opinion) but way below a lot of the Mexican places around here like Anna's Taqueria. Sorry I can't help out much with VT but if you come to the Boston area Anna's is solid and Tenoch Mexican has amazing tortas in Medford MA.

What you need is a Mexican grandma. How does your wife feel about live-in help?

Julio's in Montpelier does OK, but if your girl is looking for something in particular you probably won't find it. Better to start fresh.
Avocado, cilantro, chipotle, some good tacos (got a health food store?).
Fish, chicken, even BLT taco's. Anything goes.
Make your own tradition.
Just don't buy anything that says 'taco seasoning'.

There was a decent Mexican place in downtown Rutland when I was through last summer. But it's probably been ruined by Vermonter's taste by now.

Taco Bueno sucks. One of the new things I've found as far a fast mexican food is Burrito express. It is kinda like a subway you tell them the shit to throw on a tortilla and they do and you pay for it and eat the damn thing. Not bad really.
