“Great Food and Atmosphere!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

We were passing through Lima on our way back to Columbus and decided to stop for dinner - this place looked promising, and we were not disappointed! It reminded me of the Mexican restaurants from 25+ years ago - that kind of kitschy decor with the wood paneling and Christmas lights - very fun. The food was great - I had a combination with a few different things, all of which were really well made. The regular salsa was a bit bland, but if you ask for hotter, they will bring you sort of a spicy pico de gallo, which is much better. The guacamole was very good - definitely worth getting a side of it with your meal!

“Sunday Evening Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2012

My husband and I like to go to Bandido's on Sunday evening for salsa and chips, an entree to share and fried ice cream for dessert. The staff is always friendly and the service is great.

“You'll enjoy their food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2012

Right across from the mall is Bandidos, a mexican restaurant serving good food at a great price! The fajitas and burritos are wonderful! The service is great. And the drinks are bigger than the average restaurant. We'll go back!
