Hidden gem in Colonial Heights, VA

Easy to reach if travelling through the area from I-95/I-85/I-295. If you are local, it's a restaurant that you should be a regular at. The food is excellent, the menu is priced right - a great value with ample portions, the restaurant is nice and clean and the staff is the best around. If you... read more

Good Tex-Mex - all the usual favorites. Table side guacamole is really good. Good service and food. Recommended.

My husband and I have tried quite a few Mexican places in the Tri-Cities, and Los Banditos is truly our favorite. Not only does it have the best food we have tried, but the interior is very brightly decorated with festive Mexican décor. We have been many times and never had a dish that we didn't like. Actually, now that... More

When I want Mexican food I come here nothing else comes close to the quality and freshness. Huge portions makes ot a great value too. Try the carnitas and fish tacos.

This place is just nuts. The chips are hot and fresh, the salsa and dipping sauce are delicious and the food is ridiculously good. Do yourself a favor and eat here if you are in the area!

Los Bandidos is a small Mexican Restaurant nestled in the K Mart Shopping Center in Colonial Heights. Don't let the size or the modest front of the building discourage you from entering. Inside is some of the best Mexican food in the area. All meals are cooked to perfection and are very reasonably priced. Stop by for a quick bite... More

We were driving south from New York to Florida and were looking for a delicious local lunch. We looked ahead 30 miles and searched Trip Advisor and found ourselves at this delightful restaurant. The table of GI's in desert camo from the nearby recruiting station was a good sign. My friend was gluten free and both of us found delicious... More

At the bandits, our group of eight were seated for our Sunday lunch. Typical quick and friendly service followed. We ordered our drinks and were treated to chips and salsa appetizers. Served with our chips was the typical tomato based salsa and the white sauce. Other sauces were available, if you knew what to ask for. A friend ordered a... More
