Great any time

Delicious food every time! Each time we go here we have to customize our items to be vegetarian friendly and they never mess it up. The chimichanga is my go to item here and it never fails to be perfect. It is more Americanized, so if you are wanting full authentic Mexican food, save this for... read more

The reviews are right about the chips and salsa. They are good. However, we've tried about half of the entrees and the food is indistinguishable. Filled tortillas are soggy. The restaurant may be clean, but doesn't feel that way. There are better places to eat and you can get salsa to go.

Having recently moved to Springville, we decided to try Joe Bandito's--recommended by family and rated fairly high by Trip Advisor. Our meals were served quickly, and they had the same taste of most food at Mexican restaurants: rice, beans, maybe cheese, and usually some kind of hot sauce. Nothing special. The place is also old and fairly rundown with a... More

Very good chips and salsa! I had a chili reenno and pork enchilada. It was very very good! The best I have had. The portions were extra large.

Food-terrible slop Service-ok Atmosphere-filthy. The busboy clearing the table behind us was throwing the dishes in a pan, food flying everywhere and the noise was deafening. If I could rate this place any lower I would.

This place is about as Americanized as Mexican food can get, except maybe Taco Bell. The refried beans tasted like they came from a can (probably Old El Paso), the rice was dry, and my burrito was almost sweet. Service was indifferent at best and the prices were too high for the swill they were feeding their customers. Join the... More

When we first arrived, we thought that we may have a few issues getting a table as the car park was close to full. Don't know where all those cars came from, but don't letting the full parking area put you off having dinner here as there was plenty of seats available. We were seated fairly quickly after entering the... More

Try the sweet pork it is some of the best tasting food I've had it is not listed on the menu but they do have it. The chips and salsa are also fantastic not super spicy but it had a lot to it. The only thing I don't love is the service but the food makes it worth it!

Really enjoy Joe Bandito's. Always friendly service, great food. It's often busy on Fridays, so plan accordingly.

Staying in town and decided to try this restaurant. Ample food portions along with fresh salsa and warm chips. There was a large portion of meat in our dishes. Service was good and friendly. They were fairly busy and went out of their way to greet locals warmly which was nice to see. They refilled chips and drinks timely too.... More
