Joe Bandito's is a local phenomenon. My friends either seem to LOVE it or HATE it. I have been there twice, once when it first opened (and it smelled like mildew,) and once in Oct. 2016. In Oct. 2016, the salsa and chips were delicious. I would go there just to buy them, they are that good. The main dish,... More

Parking lot was packed when we went in but we were seated quickly. Wait staff was very friendly and attentive. Food was prepared quickly. We were very satisfied with the quality and quantity of our meal. Definitely recommend.

On the edge of Springville sits a little old building.....goodness in disguise!! Chips and salsa are to die for with great big soda cups to quench your thirst! My fave is 2 cheese enchiladas with green sauce, the hubs, fish tacos! We love to go with friends or family! A local eat for sure!!!!

This is a run-of-the-mill Mexican place. You'll get big entrees that come with the requisite rice and beans. My fish tacos looked good and had a good mix of textures, but they lacked any flavor. A real disappointment. Chips and salsa were fine. But nothing special. I don't live in the area, but I doubt I would come back.

Very generous portions for those on a budget. The staff take the time to help you decide what to get based on your taste. The chips and salsa are very good. I love the enchiladas and salads and drink selection is the best.

I've eaten here 4 times and every time it's been awful. Last night I got their chicken chimichanga, it's huge and looks good but it was filled with more beans than chicken. My hubby got their crab enchilada, they opened a can of crab meat, dumb it in a tortilla and put some sort of green sauce on it. He... More

I know I went with the fam to a mex place and ordered a 9$ burger. Why didn't I order the bandito or even mahi tacos as I have in the past and was thrilled with them. Things I didn't like about the burger, 1 smaller patty than bun 2 bun had to be lifted to make sure there was... More
