Yummy Margarita

Laid back and really enjoyable. The restaurant has wonderful frozen margaritas (mango) for me. Add to that an order of loaded nachos and a chicken burrito and I was one happy and very full camper.

What a fabulous place. What an amazing Quesadillas. Bags and bags of flavours, perfectly crispy edges, absolutely delicious guac and salsa... So fresh that you do feel eating some good quality food. I am a foody and We are so glad that me and my husband went to this place. Ambience was beautiful. I ended up asking about their colourful... More

I t looks like a Mexican restaurant and Latino music plays in the background. The food is like Taco Bell, not authentic Mexican as advertised, We had a hard time getting drinks refilled. I ordered chicken nachos and it was just chips, chicken and cheese, bland and colorless. We could have eaten at Taco Bell and saved some money!

Banditos is our favorite Mexican restaurant in Ann Arbor! Not only is the food authentic and consistent, but the service can't be beat! We have become good friends with employees and feel that our relationship with them is genuine and it keeps us coming back again and again. There are zero things lacking - nothing to complain about. We are... More

The food there is delicious, best Mexican food around! I went there for the first time and I was hooked. The chimichangas are my favorite at Banditos.

I have been going to Banditos for a number of years now and can always count on getting a good meal and fast, friendly service, all at a very reasonable price. My favorite dish is the chicken quesadilla accompanied by a really tasty margarita. The quesadilla has a lot of filling, unlike some other places I have tried, and I... More

My boys and I traveled to Ann Arbor to see a movie at the beautiful Michigan theatre and needed a nice spot for a late lunch beforehand. After reading the reviews on tripadvisor I knew this place would fit the bill. We parked at the Liberty Street garage, walked a few blocks west and found Banditos to be even better... More

Ok, ate there the other night and it was great. We also got a show....Everyone see the post below where the guy claims he waited an hour then tried to leave and had the police called on him? Well, I was there that night (dude, we were at the booth in front of you) and I did a search to... More
