For anyone that enjoys quick tacos, taquitos, and other servings of Mexican goodness, El Buen Taquito is often the go-to spot in Yuma. With an assortment of menu items ready for customers, anyone with a rumble in the stomach can satisfy their cravings and then wash it down with a house-made beverage (such as the Cucumber Lime or Jamaica/Limon). And now, for anyone that doesn’t want to make their way out to 13th Avenue, there is a new option in town. 

El Buen Taquito has officially opened a new location in Yuma with an emphasis on speed and whipping out the good stuff without forcing customers to wait. Dubbed El Buen Taquito Extra, the restaurant will offer up a similar menu as the original (although the menu will be condensed), although it is designed to be an “express” experience for customers. While guests are more than welcome to enjoy their food either in the indoor dining area or with one of the outdoor tables, the food will be ready for customers upon ordering, which is great news for anyone that simply doesn’t want to wait. 

The El Buen Taquito Extra opened its doors at 611 East Main Street in Yuma. For any Mexican food lover, this address might sound familiar. Tucked in around the Super Gas station, this location used to be another Mexican restaurant. Formerly the El Taco Loco inside the Super Gas Mini Market, the restaurant was known for offering a number of quick, cheap eats, such as dollar tacos, five-dollar burritos, and five-dollar cheeseburger and fry combos. 

El Taco Loco closed up shop and the space has remained vacant. However, with the busy location in the Somerton community, it presented the owners of El Buen Taquito with an opportunity to expand the brand and to bring back a favorite food offering. Car shows and other activities are common sites around the Super Gas station, and the absence of a restaurant has left guests looking to grab food either from the Mini Market, the Dollar Tree across the street, or leave their displays and pick up food somewhere else. Now, the El Buen Taquito Extra will make things much easier for everyone in the area. From tostadas, folded potato tacos, and even loaded fries, El Buen Taquito Extra looks to bring more to the culinary table than the previous El Taco Loco served up. 

The location is open now and serving customers daily.
