During the Annual Ann Arbor Art Fair we were in need of food, rest and ice tea! We stopped at Banditos, ordered a beef (shredded) burrito, a chicken chimichangas and ice tea (they brew fresh) - they were mammoth! The food was delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant - it's not fancy, but, it has great food!

Bandito's is an authentic Mexican restaurant with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The cheese enchiladas and quesadillas are to die for! The staff is always very friendly and accomodating for food allergies. The food is reasonably priced and delicious! It's one of my favorite spots in town!

Everything about this place is fantastic from the service to the decor to the food. The times I've been the waiter has been very on top of everything even when it has been really busy. The salsa and guac are fantastic as is all the food I've ever had here. It's really surprising how many places neglect the basics but... More

We meet friends here a couple of times a year and always have a great time. Lots of fun bantering with the owner. Very good portions, but maybe food could be spiced up a little. Diners are made to feel welcome and appreciated as soon as they arrive. Absolutely worth a visit.

My family LOVES this place. The owner is funny and very attentive when he's not out making deliveries, Yes! they do deliveries! The taco's are so delicious my very picky son eats at least 3 every time! Plus all the extra's! We don't eat out much but if we decide to, Banditos is always where everyone agrees on. We have...

We made a reservation with friends on a popular Saturday night. Seated on time, but a very hectic atmosphere. The servers didn't deliver orders to the right tables, forgot a beverage, and were rushing about. That said, the food was very good. I would like to visit on a night that wasn't so crazy. The wait staff was very friendly.

It was very nice to be able to get a table on a game day night and we had heard good things about the place in terms of food. Pretty basic overall though and nothing to write home about. A little bit divey and decent portions but lacking in flavor a bit! Overall it was passable, just not sure I'd... More

From the freshly made chips and salsa to the bright decor, Bandito's is a welcoming tasty experience for the whole family. I have eaten just about everything on the menus during the 12 plus years I've been going. My favorite is the chicken enchiladas, top that with a side of sour cream and some iced tea and you will have... More

A small quaint place, that is very family friendly as well as very tasty. Richie the owner is a very nice guy that treats his guests like they are family.. If you are in the Ann Arbor area, I would highly suggest checking the place out!
