Not really a Mexican place, but not terrible. If you need to fill up for $12 (burrito and soda), you can get a filling meal. But, if you're looking for a real Mexican meal, go elsewhere (but not anywhere nearby, 'cause there ain't any real Mexican food nearby). We were unimpressed, but it is convenient.

Finally, a not-so-fast food restaurant serving healthy fast food. Order the burrito (in a variety of options) and you won't be disappointed, mostly because of the size and flavor packed into it. The meat/chicken is always fresh and delicious, and don't forget to try their "chimichurri" sauce the keep on a side table - it's insanely good as an afterthought condiment! Great prices, and food options. A favorite spot for locals, especially teenage boys who otherwise never seem to have enough to eat. A burrito grande from Bueno y Sano is a healthy comfort food that always leaves you sated.

First the place should not have a Spanish name because it is not a Mexican burrito place so don't expect too much more than tortillas and beans to represent Mexican food. If it is fusion food - fine. Call it Fusion Burrito and I would skip it completely. I went in (before reading Yelp) and thought it was Mexican.

Next the burritos. I had a 'carintas' burrito (the only Mexican food on the menu). It was mostly salty rice in a flour tortilla. There was some 'carnitas' (pork) in the burrito but about as much that you would use in a very small taco. Certainly not the amount in a $8.25 burrito. It also had some funky vegetables in it that one would never expect to see in a Mexican burrito (more filler). I lived in San Diego for 8 years and ate lots of taco stand burritos and none had vegies or rice in them.

Then, I tried to use their 'hot sauce' and it was basically watered down Durkee hot sauce. Gross. The 'medium' sauce was simply further watered down Durkee hot sauce. Double gross.

Anyway, if they called it 'Salty rice in tortillas' I would have not even gone in. but that is what the name of the place should be. Over-priced for what you get and if you are not looking for a real burrito maybe you will like it.

The burritos here are quite good and are a meal in themselves given their size and all encompassing stuffing. I stuck with a fairly traditional burrito but a quick glance at the menu shows that these guys are willing to experiment, which I appreciate and which probably will draw me back. The only let down was the chips, which certainly were taken from a bag rather than being fresh made. A little more variety on the salsas would be welcome too. Value for the money was good and the atmosphere was as expected for a quick eat place. I definitely would go again.

If you enjoy a good burrito or quesadilla, this is definitely the place to go in the Acton, MA area. I ate here at least twice a month this past winter/spring while working in the area. Lots of vegetarian and pescatarian options and very filling portions. I have tried several yummy flavor combinations for both burritos and quesadillas and have enjoyed them all. The veggies are always fresh, the service is fast and the food is delicious. A great place for a quick lunch or dinner. If you enjoy spicy, I would recommend the stuffed jalepenos. The only dish I have tried here and wasn't very impressed with was the fish tacos...other than that, it's all good.
