My wife and I went there for our first time yesterday. Food was fantastic. Service was excellent. I love my margarita. Decor is nice. I highly recommend.

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

Pretty bad after u wait over an hour for food, you tell them to cancel your order because u are tired of waiting and no one is hardly in the place and leave but they call the police and make u pay for it anyway. I offered 3 times to pay for the water, salsa and chips we had waiting... More

My family ate here tonight to celebrate a new job and had a wonderful time. We always enjoy the company of the owner and the taste of the food. Mexican Pizzas, Chicken Burrito and rice and beans were on the menu for us tonight. Another table ordered the fajitas and they looked and smelled great. We also had the chicken... More

Terrible. Resiculously overpriced for some of the worst mexican cafeteria food I've ever eaten. I ordered almost 50$ worth of vegetarian items, an then arrived to pick up my order only to find out rice is not veg-friendly. As i was eating my bean burrito i felt something hard in my mouth. Upon further investigaion I realized that I had... More

One of the best places ever to try Mexican food.. Enchiladas and Burritos are exceptional as well as very reasonable priced.. Place where I could go with family and friends at different times

The food here was really good. Now that being said, they are a little more expensive than many Mexican restaurants. For that price I would have at least hoped for free chips and salsa like many, some even less expensive, Mexican restaurants. Great service and surprisingly quiet on a football Saturday none the less.

I would call this a hidden neighborhood gem. We frequent Ann Arbor, but only found this due to their high Trip Advisor rating. The food was very good, with great variety and quality. The service was personable and attentive. High marks for their refried beans and guacamole -- all made without lard, but not lacking in flavor. Definitely worth a... More
