Bandolero is located in the heart of Georgetown. It has a great appealing design and cozy environment. My choice was large empanadas and some Mexican beer. Good prices and service!

Nice authentic (authentic enough for me) restaurant on M St. in Georgetown. Stopped by for lunch. Ordered the Tuna Cerviche and split a Chicken and churrios lunch with my wife. Glad I did as the portions were huge. Nice break from shopping.
