Taco Bueno, a love letter

I know I wax on about Starbucks, but I did have and continue to have a love affair with a different venue, Taco Bueno. Yes this is my tribute entry to Taco Bueno, I know you have all been waiting for it, but I had to gather my thoughts and emotions evoked by this great iconic fast food restaurant. There are so many great offerings on their menu, of course I have my favorites; the Mexi Dips and Chips, the Beef Mucho Nachos come to mind. And yes while I am on Weight Watchers I have had to scale back on my outings to the great Taco Bueno, however, I have figured out the point values of my favorite items and plan accordingly.
I have also raised my children to be Bueno Heads, Jeffrey; my oldest son who will be 27 in August had his first Mexican meal from Taco Bueno. It was from the one in Owasso, Oklahoma, they had just opened it, greatness, I no longer had to drive to Tulsa to get my Bueno fix. And it was right around the corner from the housing addition we lived in at the time.
Alas my time with Bueno came to an end for a while, we moved to Atlanta, Georgia and there were no Taco Bueno’s there, only Taco Bell, yuck. I do not like Taco Bell at all. Then we moved to Plano, TX and at the time we moved here there were two Bueno’s!!! Two! The bounty!
I have raised all of my children loving Taco Bueno, if you have not tried it, I highly suggest you do, get the Beef Mucho Nachos, it is a treat for the taste buds, an enemy of the waist if you do not plan accordingly.
