BUENO Y SANO IS ALMOST HERE!!
God, words cannot adequately describe how much I love this burrito joint.
They have several locations in college towns (Northampton, Amherst, Burlington VT...), and they're coming to Acton (ACTON!) in just a couple of weeks.
For my money, these are the best burritos *anywhere*. Leaves Anna's, Chipotle, etc. in the dust thanks to enormous variety. I love the red curry, roasted garlic, and chickpea burrito; Mr. Swank enjoys the East-West with plum sauce (Asian stir-fry, basmati, grilled chicken or tofu, topped with plum sauce).
Also: Excellent red and green salsas (free), plus the choice of low-fat yoghurt as opposed to sour cream. Can order large or pequeno (pint-size) burritos; tacos (with *two* tortillas, free) and quesadillas are also on the menu. Great selection of juices, coolers, and sodas. And delicious, sturdy chips.
There's also a huge roster of options for vegetarians--seitan, tofu, grilled vegetables, and so forth. SO GOOD.
Route 2 is about to see a *lot* more traffic, I suspect.
You couldn't be more correct, Bueno's burritos are the best. Have had great examples in Amherst and Burlington.
Received an email from Bob L the owner indicating that the new store in Acton is in the verge of opening. Hope all goes well with the particulars.
We're in dire need of a place like Bueno Y Sano around here!
I have been following the progress on facebook. I just hope they make it and last longer than the Chinese restaurant that lasted less than a year in that space.
The parking in the actual lot stinks and pulling out of that lot can be tough too. There is also parking within very short walking distance. A lot across the street i think belongs to a verizon building or something, always empty. Also an abandoned mcdonalds and the kmart lot is huge. Nobody ever parks on the 1/2 towards the street.
I drove by the place yesterday and it looks a lot bigger than I thought it would (for some reason, I was thinking it would be the size of a shoebox). It looked dark and empty, but it WAS a Sunday, so I doubt they'd be doing much work on it, especially with temps in the 50s and sunny.
