FARMERS BRANCH (CBSDFW.COM ) – Taco Bueno was named the best Mexican restaurant in America by Market Force Information’s annual quick service restaurant study.

The regional Tex-Mex chain beat out restaurants like Chipotle and Qdoba, which tied for first last year, as well as Rubio’s Fresh Mexican Grill and El Pollo Loco.

Taco Bueno has 175 locations in seven states.

The first Taco Bueno opened in Abilene, Texas, in 1967.
