Foursquare and Business Insider Nationwide Study Released

Taco Bueno is Oklahoma’s Most Popular Fast-food Chain

December 6, 2023

DALLAS (Oct. 20, 2017) – Business Insider teamed up with Foursquare to determine the most popular fast-food chain in each state. To little surprise, Oklahomans love Taco Bueno.

For the study, the teams looked at which chains received the most visits on average in every state based on the total number of visits to each chain divided by the number of locations in that state.

Sarah Beddoe, chief marketing officer of Taco Bueno, said, “We are Oklahoma through and through. We feel that each community we serve here envelopes the obsession with our Tex-Mex tastes and traditions that have been part of the Taco Bueno fabric for more than 50 years.”

While the first Taco Bueno was in Texas, the second location opened in Tulsa in 1972 and was followed by four more. The reason was simple – the founder had family and land in the Tulsa area so it was a logical choice for expansion. Eight of the first 10 Taco Bueno stores were Oklahoma-based. The state, and particularly Tulsa, played an important role in the chain’s growth and is second only to Texas in number of locations. Until the mid-1980s, Taco Bueno was the only Tex-Mex or Mexican fast food option in Tulsa, and many Oklahomans have grown up with Taco Bueno.

Oklahomans love Taco Bueno’s commitment to great taste, affordable menu items and convenience. Their menu items are made with 100 percent fresh, never frozen, ground beef and are hand-prepped daily in the kitchen.

Taco Bueno has 64 locations throughout Oklahoma and now Buenoheads can even get Taco Bueno delivered straight to their door through the apps UberEats, GrubHub and DoorDash. For more information, please visit
