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

A group of us were at Colonial HD (the best Harley dealer in the country), and needed lunch. We picked Bandidos based on the TA reviews, which once again lead us to an excellent dining experience. There were 7 of us, and each had a different dish. None were disappointed. Personally, I had the Chori-pollo. May have been the best... More

The food is awesome, fast, huge portions, always fresh, and so tasty! The service is excellent. Waiters are friendly, know their product, prompt, and always playful. The decor is bright and comfortable. I highly recommend the San Juan burrito, if it is back on the menu. That sucker is HUGE and tastes so good, my mouth waters just thinking about... More
