Our party of 7 was seated promptly and half our party got their orders promptly and correctly. Two orders came with no filling in chili rellanos. They were taken back to kitchen and the filling put under not in chili for one person. For other they just brought filling in a bowl! One order came after every one else was nearly finished. Past food and service has been better! Not crowded!

We go here every time we are in Durham. The people and food are great, they never disappoint. Pretty good margaritas too.

After a year off we visited this neighborhood restaurant for lunch. Last time our granddaughter's food never arrived. Lunch this week showed a nice crowd but not nearly full seating. Our drinks were not refreshed and after food was served (reasonably promptly) we were not even revisited. Manager's excuse was a sick call, but this looked to me like the same problem of our last visit. Two wait persons cannot handle an entire lunch crowd.

We have been going for several years, and knew the owner when he had a restaurant in Marietta, GA. Nothing fancy, but everything is good. Service is excellent, the homemade chips are always warm and crisp. I haven't gotten a bad entree yet, and I've tried many of the. We would highly recommend Bandido's.
