Tonight I had a revelation, but unlike a normal, inspired “a-ha” moment; this is a thought I’ve expressed periodically…. but tonight I realize how serious I am when I say this: Denver, Colorado needs a Taco Bueno location! Badly!!!
Growing up around and spending my college years in Abilene, Texas I’ve had unlimited access to Taco Bueno. It wouldn’t be out of the ordinary when I’d have it for dinner twice a week….sometimes I’d have it nearly every day! No dear reader, it’s not sick, it’s awesome and a testament of how awesome Taco Bueno is!
However, since then I’ve moved to Denver. Personally, I couldn’t ask for a better place to live; I get easy access to mountains, perfect temperature summers, green grass, and I’m living in the epicenter of the craft beer movement (there’s a new brewery/taproom/brewpub seemingly every 2-3 months). So in short: I love it here and don’t plan on leaving anytime soon! But there is one problem….There’s no Taco Bueno!!
In fact, the closest Taco Bueno is a 6 hour drive to Albuquerque, New Mexico and there’s a few locations in Kansas as well, but the drive isn’t any shorter. Due to this, I only get Bueno when I go home to see my Family in Abilene (I always request we make a B-line for Bueno before any hugs are shared) Seeing that I don’t have the 1.5 million net worth nor the $35,000 for franchising (I’ve looked into it quite often) I decided to just see if any rich people read this and do me a solid and get one going over here.
To further make my plea more pathetic…er…um “Reasonable” Here’s 10 reasons why Taco Bueno would be awesome for Denver:
