Busy place - Classic Mexican American comfort food

While the menu has remained the same since Joe Bandito's opened 9 years ago, the chips and salsa are unbeatable - fresh hot light chips are delicious. the entrees are large, reasonably priced - 9 to 14 dollars per person and large enough to easily share between a couple.

My family enjoy eating at Joe Bandito's very often. You can have shredded beef, ground beef, or grilled chicken on almost everything. They also have the best salsa and chips. They also have a good kids menu.

All 4 of us enjoyed our different meals. I had the shrimp fajitas, and they were really tasty. The vegetables were fresh and the flavors were excellent. The shrimp was delicious. I came away very satisfied with the quality, quantity, service, and price.

ok the food is good, the carpet is dirty and its always crowded. So mostly good signs that this place is in demand. But is it authentic Mexican food? Yes. Though the best evidence of this I can give is a true story of a team of Hispanic workers who worked at our home all day. At lunch time they... More

Some of the best chips and salsa in the state. I give them 5 stars for the chips and 4 stars for the food. I recommend the Tostada Grande - Ground Beef. Adding to its attraction is that it is open on Sunday

I love the food at Joe's. My favorite is the Enchiladas Tres with pork and green sauce. My wife loves the Bandito, a house specialty. Others in my party have had the Fish Tacos and loved them. One of the highlights is their chips and salsa, love 'em.

We love the chips and salsa - fresh, home-made chips always served warm with plenty of fresh salsa, is the highlight of our visit to Joes. They serve salsa in a bigger bowl and give you individual small bowls in case you want to double-dip. The guacamole is good and so are the entrees we've tried. The bandito is a... More

We decided to try this place because we were hungry, and it was available...WHAT A FIND!!! We went back 3 times within 10 days. They start you out with a huge basket of fresh, crispy tortilla chips and a fresh made tasting salsa. Careful with these though, the friendly wait staff keep refilling both. The entree dishes are huge portions... More
