Banditos is a classic mexican food restaurant located in downtown Ann Arbor. They serve authentic mexican dishes with excellent taste and reasonable prices.

The shredded beef burrito has always been one of my favorite dinners in downtown Ann Arbor, and it was as good as always tonight. Their salsa is also good- fresh and chunky- and the chips that come with it were also fresh and crispy. Service was prompt and friendly. Thanks for a great dinner!

This was originally in Irish Hills, but moved to this Ann Arbor location some years ago and it is very worth checking out. The owner's run the restaurant and they are there all the time.

This is in a fun location downtown. Unfortunately, they charge for chips and a small bowl of salsa. The service was quite slow and there weren't many people in the restaurant. We had enchiladas, tacos, and nachos. They were decent but not great.

This small, communal table spot, has absolutely mouth watering sandwiches, served with fries in the sandwich.Their Cuban "milkshakes" are raved about and only add to the calorie rich menu. This is a quilty pleasure, at most once a week or less, unless you are a local college student or marathoner!

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!
