“excellent”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2014

This was by far the best restaurant we found regarding its quality food , service and pricing. We did return due to the fact there was not a lot of other options that compared in any way.

“Not quite as good this time”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

Two years ago we went to this place about 5 times. This year we only went once and it was just not the same. The shrimp avacado is off the menu (it was our favorite), but the salsa is still made at the tablle. Mexican medium is really a Canadian hot, but still good. Great margarita's still but the main course choices were limited. The music was good, however a lot more on the mellow side and expecially for a Saturday night. Not sure I will return next time.

“Table side salsa making is wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

Bandidos is a fun place to watch the games as well has do some dancing later in the night. The food was great. The cucumber martinis were great...no hangover! We stopped by twice during our last trip and will be back during our up coming trip! Looking forward to it!

“Unexpectedly excellent meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2013

We went to Bandido's with moderate expectations but it was great. The salsa is made table sides your liking, the service was wonderful, the food was very very good! Pretty touristy but so what? Also excellent frozen margarita, not too sweet. A great choice!

“Good for watching the game”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

Bandido's is a bit more expensive than many other restaurants in Zihua. We have eaten there at least once a visit during the last 7 years or so. We typically go there to watch an NFL game on Sundays. The food, as well as the drinks, are good. We visited Bandidos last Sunday for the Bears game. We had 2 appetizers and 2 bloody marys and all was excellent. The staff was very accommodating. One other major plus: great bathrooms!
