I was so excited for Bueno to come back to the Boston area, having adored their burritos in Amherst and Northampton. Late-night college dining at its best (and yep, the burritos taste good sober, too).
I was so sorely disappointed by my recent meal at the Acton location. The owner was on the cash register -- maybe someone had called out sick -- and he was scowling the whole time. Barely smiled, was incredibly brusque with customers. My beef chili burrito tasted like watery bolognese sauce wrapped in a stale tortilla. Iceberg lettuce and some cold, shredded pieces of cheese didn't help. I requested hot sauce (choose from wicked hot, hot, medium, or mild), and there was absolutely no heat in the burrito. The hot red sauce is, in my opinion, what MAKES Bueno so delicious -- thin, tangy, fiery. This stuff was just watery chunks of loose tomato with no flavor at all.
Such a disappointment. Guess if I want a burrito fix, it's back to Amherst i go. I was rooting for this place! Sadly, Yelp tells the same tale.
