We had hoped to grab a quick bite at the Hilo Saturday outdoor market (no hot cooked offerings there unfortunately) and just happened to park right in front of Bueno Burrito... what luck as this little spot was a great little find. We stepped in the door for a quick breakfast/lunch on our way to a day of waterfall hikes... More

Decided to try Bueno Burrito, and were very happy we did - from the owner who is very friendly to the wonderful chicken tacos - have been back 3 times during our stay, and will no doubt be back for more - reasonably priced and good food -

My husband and I have been coming to Bueno Burrito for years. It is our go-to restaurant in Hilo. The wet burrito is a flavorful bargain. Fresh veggies local , nice choices Highly recommended

Quick stop in Hilo. We got take out for lunch and were amazed by the quality of the food. Burrito was giant and loaded with flavorful meat. The tamales (green and chicken) were incredible! Children had burrito bowls and ate them with gusto. Little picky eaters are great judges of food. They gave 5 stars to Bueno Burrito!

This little hide away used to be located in a great spot down the road, they moved ...I guess to see it the could drone up more business..but, if the customer service sucks...well.....So my granddaughter visited this establishment, we were on a time crunch and decided to just get a few bottles of water to hold us for an hour...

After a day of hiking, we were looking for a place for 15 to eat. We did not realize this was a take out place but the owner set us up on the sidewalk and went out of his way to accommodate us. The food was great and we will remember the experience always. A must if traveling thru Hilo.

I came to see the dancing chef of Bueno Burrito but found out he's on vacation until September :'-( ....I miss the fun vibe and big servings already!

An excellent lunch stop. It looks a bit dive-y but the pork/sweet potato burrito with coconut cilantro rice (Hula burrito) was amazing. Exceptionally tasty and fresh.

My husband and I were visiting our son and his girlfriend in Hilo when they brought us to this restaurant for dinner. I must admit, we were taken aback by its "hole-in-the -wall" appearance; it was a beautiful night, so we chose to sit outside at one of its two tables. They had eaten here several times, and were happy... More
