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... read 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

Stumbled upon this Mexican restaurant and because of the TripAdvisor reviews decided to stop here. So glad we did! Started off with excellent chips and salsa, always a good sign. The waitress was very helpful and knew her menu. Was surprised at the limited number of items on the menu as compared to other Mexican places but that didn't bother... More

One of our Family's favorite restaurants in our area is Bandido's! Their food is top quality and they always use the freshest ingredients. The best appetizer would be their table side guacamole, they make the best guacamole dip/salad that I have ever had- absolutely delicious.
