Welcome to Buen Apetito!


Serving the Waterville Community Since 1999


Buen Apetito, located at the Railroad Square Cinema in Waterville, Maine, has been providing the area with fresh, authentic Mexican cuisine since April of 1999. Every meal at "BA" begins with fresh tortilla chips and an accompaniment of salsas that vary daily, with options including our mild yet flavorful red salsa, our famous medium-heat creamy avocado salsa (a favorite of Portland Magazine), and our hot red, orange, or green salsas. To wash down this complimentary appetizer, why not indulge in one of our Margaritas, made daily using fresh squeezed lime juice. We also serve a variety of domestic and imported beers, as well as a selection of sodas, including non-alcoholic Sangria.

Buen Apetito offers a spectrum of entrees to tempt a variety of taste buds, including traditional Mexican dishes, some ďTex-MexĒ favorites, and some South-Western inspired American classics. Even if you, or someone in your family (you donít have to say who) isnít a fan of Mexican, he/she is bound to enjoy one of our sizzling steaks, a delicious guacamole burger, or Chef Gary LaPlantís delectable smoked ribs (a seasonal special). For the more adventurous, Chefs Dalia Davila and Susan LaPlant are prepared to tempt you with burritos stuffed with your choice of ingredients, crisp enchiladas, baked chile rellenos, and any number of other delicacies! Just make sure you save room for a homemade flan (a Mexican custard), or a rich Mexican Baked Chocolate!

Hope to be seating you soon,
-The Buen Apetito Crew
