Good food and portions, server was friendly but new to serving so not as good as she will be in 2016. Establishment was clean and pleasant.

I've been to Bandido's more times than I can count. The employees are always cheerful and polite and their food is always delicious. The free chips and salsa are addicting and usually fill us up even before our food arrives. I usually get the enchiladas, either chicken or seafood. A word of advice, the seafood enchiladas are super rich, so... More

My neice b day was fun. They gave her a sombrero to wear while we ate. Her meal was free. The food is average chain mexican food. Drinks are good! I recommend margaritas.

Our family has enjoyed Bandito's since the late 80's. First date with my husband was there. Roast beef burritos are a favorite. Can't get those too many places. Many flavor of margaritas to choose from. Raspberry is my fav!

Just ate there today and we had a lovely lunch. The place was packed and we had to give our name for the waiting list. Waited maybe 5 minutes and was seated. Everyone kept apologizing for the wait (5 minutes?). The bartender had to help out waiting on tables between drinks and he did a great job. My wife's lunch... More

My husband and I invited two friends for dinner at the Banditos. We all had fajitas they were served on cast-iron skillets. The friendly waitress did tell they are very hot, however, while eating and having a conversation one of our friends grabbed the skillet handle to bring it closer. Bad mistake! He burnt his right hand terribly. The friendly... More

When here tonight, haven't been in awhile. And as always, Brian, and his staff were right on top of things, hot, plentiful, and of course good.

We've been here a number of times, but this meal was really exceptionally great. I had a roast beef taco, roast beef burrito and seafood burrito. Each was excellent (my only suggestion would be to add a few jalapenos, but I could have asked :-) My son had a huge plate of nachos. We also had a small white and... More

A nice, very comfortable sit-down Mexican restaurant. Most of the dishes are the usual Mexican fare, but they're well prepared and taste great. Service was attentive even though we had a large group.

We stopped here tonight because La Charreada had such a long wait. Our service was fine, no complaints with the staff. The food just was not very good. My "big Juan" burrito had yellow cheese on it, like velveeta! If I wanted nacho cheese on my burrito I would have suggested Taco Bell. Come on man!! I ordered it with... More
