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.

It wasn't awful, certainly, but the enchiladas had some kind of a white sauce on them rather than a red, and it was pretty tasteless. Just not our thing. Probably would not go back, plus it turned out to be about 4 miles from our hotel-our mistake! We met some nice people in the next booth though!

I have so many good memories made at one of my favorite restaurants ever! Growing up, my mom, sisters and I would come here after shopping at the mall. It used to be super cheap, but they have since upped their prices (which are still reasonable). I also had a first date here, which was perfect, because you get the... More

Bandidos is a small restaurant chain headquartered in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Lima location has been operating for about twenty five years and was a favorite of my kids growing up. After repeated food quality and service issues several years ago, we’d sworn off the place and hadn’t been back until recently. We’ve been there three times in the past... More

We were passing through Lima on our way back to Columbus and decided to stop for dinner - this place looked promising, and we were not disappointed! It reminded me of the Mexican restaurants from 25+ years ago - that kind of kitschy decor with the wood paneling and Christmas lights - very fun. The food was great - I... More
