This was the worst restaurant we've been to in Maine. The food is worse than even Tex-Mex at a chain restaurant. We just went for Cinco de Mayo - spent $82 for 3 people (one a child). The chorizo seemed like hot dogs (disgusting), the chicken enchiladas were flour tortillas with some chicken on the inside, a tiny bit of... More

Although I appreciate constructive feedback, you do not have your facts straight! I'm sorry you feel that we are the "worst restaurant in Maine." But our food in NOT Tex-Mex. It is Mayan inspired from the Yucatan region of Mexico and we use only the finest, freshest ingredients in our recipes. In response to what you were charged, a full... More

My mother and I went for lunch for the first time. The waitress/bartender Sam was delightful and was on top of it! The food was delicious. My mother said it was the "best chimichanga she's ever had", and I was impressed with their pulled pork sandwich. The margaritas are also quite good! We look forward to another dining experience there.

Stopped by before a movie to have some food and drinks. good selection of beer and drinks. Had some buffalo wings that were great. The chimichangas were terrible and the sauces I just didn't understand at all. The honey chipotle wings were ok...overall thought the food was cold because it sat in the window due to lack of staff.

Thank you for taking the time to let me know about your recent experience. We, like many local restaurants, were struggling with staffing issues but are fully staffed now!

I meet two or three times a year with a few colleagues from my prior employer. We've started frequenting Bueno Loco for the good, service, and relaxed pace. We come for early dinner after work and are usually there until nine or ten. They never rush us. Summer we sit on the patio/side walk. Great to be outside. Quiet so... More

I come to Bueno Loco about once every six months, usually because I want Mexican food and don't want to drive to Portland. Last night's visit will be my last. I began my meal with "chicken tortilla soup", which looked very much like a small can of liver-flavored cat food had been diluted with broth. It tasted truly awful, and... More

I love good spicy Mexican cuisine which has been difficult to find here in Maine primarily because it's just not a place that's replete with spicy anything. I also love a good spicy curry but have had to travel abroad for any such a thing. But the Fire of The Dead burrito here is not only delicious but also out... More

Brought a friend because we had a class nearby. Arrived at 4:50pm and were told that they would be switching over to a dinner menu soon so we were given that higher priced menu.

Bueno Loco offers "CRAZY GOOD" Mayan inspired Mexican cuisine for lunch and dinner. Seasonal, local, and only the freshest ingredients are used to prepare our "made from scratch" menu items. Try something you've never had before like Panuchos or Arrachera Steak seasoned with over 20 secret spices. Or, stick with a classic Bueno Burrito or unique taco... You'll go "loco" for our Mayan Spring Rolls and Chipotle Pulled Pork Sandwich. Sip on our House-infused Margarita and be transported to the tropics! Our menu offerings cater to everyone, including those with specific dietary needs such as gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan. Bueno Loco is the restaurant you have been waiting for where everyone from the hard-core carnivore to the strictest vegan will recognize that their needs were addressed when the menu was planned.
