Reviewed 25 May 2014 via mobile

Great food & great service. The place is small (only 9 tables) but it is not small on taste or service. Glad we found this restaurant!

Thank A B T

“Pleasantly surprised!”
Reviewed 21 March 2014 via mobile

We were heading back to Texas on our tour of the south and stopped in for dinner at Buena Vista. We were pleasantly surprised at what a great experience it was. It is not much to look at on the outside, but was very clean and bright on the inside. Our server Maribella( I hope that is right) was very sweet and provided excellent service! The food was fresh, fantastic, and was exactly what we were looking for.

They are set up for greatness. Put out a quality product backed up with stellar service and low overhead. Please support this business. Just try it once and you'll become a regular.

“Excellent Mexican food is finally in Columbus GA!”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

The location is not great, but that is the only thing about Buena Vista that is less than to be desired. The owner is wonderful, always comes to your table to greet you and make sure you are enjoying your food. The picture currently loaded is of Gus's Diner, and this has nothing to do with Buena Vista Mexican Restaurant. I don't even think it is in Columbus, GA.

The cheese dishes at Buena Vista Mexican Restaurant are indescribably wonderfully good! The flavor burst and cannot be compared to the other Mexican food chain restaurants we have here. The chili rellanos are made with chili pablano peppers like you would expect in a high end restaurant and come with your choice of ground beef or chicken and are only $3.20 as a side item, but for me they can be an entree' alone. Their Chicken cheese quesadillas are the best! I really can't decide which I like the best.

For an appetizer, their Chorizo cheese dip the absolute best. He orders it made fresh from somone who has a store, so it is always freshly made too. Just don't get there when it has run out... The salsa is made fresh there as well. All orders are made fresh, you can hear everything being made after you order and nothing is being popped in a microwave to be heated up.

This has become a weekly event for us. So far, no waiting for seating, but this won't last!
