Bueno Malo

About Us

2 Guys.
2 Coasts.
2 Restaurants in One.

Mike & Franco had a vision...
To bring the good vibes of Southern California to the East Coast.

Break your brain double wrapped tacos.
Secret salsa recipes handed down from Mom and ‘Abuelita.’
Craft cocktails as an art form.
Tequila as a way of life.

BY DAY
“BUENO” invites you to family friendly, fast lunch with a smile;

tacos & burritos made to order with the very freshest of ingredients.

BY NIGHT
“MALO” beckons you to date night,

& gathering with friends.
Dine on sharing plates, toast with libations, and get cozy.

Time for BOSTON to get a little BAJA.

The Players

MIKE REIDY

You’ll soon get to know Mike - the “frontman” of the duo.
An Andover native, Mike’s the guy taking the orders, telling the jokes, and generally making people smile.
If he can’t make it right, it probably didn’t need fixed in the first place.
And if he isn’t wearing a signature taco shirt, his washing machine must be busted.
Customer Service is his middle name. We swear. It’s on his birth certificate.

Mike and Franco

FRANCO LOZANO III

You might not see Franco, but then again, you might not care.
His food is that good.
He’s the man behind the best fish taco you’ll ever know.
You’ll want to send love letters to his marinated chicken…
bathe in his shrimp ceviche
and bribe sweet little Mom and ‘Abuelita’ for those salsa recipes.
Frank’s no joke, though. He runs a kitchen like nobody’s business.
Don’t even think of asking what’s in
his top secret Baja Sauce…
You will regret it.

“There’s a little Bueno Malo in each of us.”
