From first glance of this place you might be inclined to find a place more visually appealing, it would be a great mistake to pass this place up. It's a very small place with a few and I mean few as in three little tables. We walked in and were greeted by a smiling owner/chef who gave us a quick... More

Walked by this place many times but this time we stopped. The food was incredibly flavored with a delicious combination of spices. Plenty of vegetarian options. I had the vegetarian quesadilla-best ever, friends had the vegan version which was just as awesome and the vegetarian burrito which was also just as good. We all loved the main course. The salsa...

Was craving burritos one day, and wanted to check out a local place. Went in and was greeted by the friendliest gentleman. He suggested getting the "wet burrito", I'm not one to question someones suggestion, especially when they are as adamant as he was about how good it tasted. I was feeling on the adventurous side, so I agreed enthusiastically.... More

After having read reviews, my husband and I decided to try Bueno Burrito since there are few options for Mexican food. The restaurant is small and has no ambiance. It is somewhat clean/tidy but looked like it could use some more attention. The menu is a little hard to figure out so the (owner, I think) helped us out and... More

We were looking for a quick bite while passing through Hilo. Bueno Burrito is located about a mile from the airport, near the Hilo Farmer's Market. The restaurant is small. There are only four tables inside and a few out on the sidewalk. My g/f and I both ordered the Hula Burrito which consists of Kalua pork, coconut cilantro rice,... More

My husband heard about the quality of the food and went to get a group of us some lunch as we just arrived in Hilo that afternoon. When he delivered it to us, he said he was amazed how every ingredient was made fresh by the owner. It was by far the best burrito I have ever eaten - and... More
