We used to come here a lot growing up. This was my first time here in years. I was extremely disappointed. The menu shrank. The food was very mediocre. The salsa was the only high point in the visit. The staff was more concerned on chatting with one another than focusing on the tables, they were very loud and rude.... More

I've been going to this restaurant since early 90's. Ups and downs but lately the service has been creepy and subpar and the food is not good. Sometimes too salty but overall not enjoyable. Two years ago this was my favorite then things went downhill. I continued to go thinking it was a fluke. After 6 times I think this... More

Had a family birthday dinner here. Food was so-so, service not good. 1 big party nearby got all the attention and we had to wait, ask for drinks, etc. Had to stop on the way home and use the bathroom to get rid of it. Can't prove what caused nausea, but won't chance it again.

People give Bandidos a bad rap, but the food quality is always consistent, the wait staff is amazing, and the prices are always reasonable. My family loves coming here.

Has been a while since we broke tortillas here, but management seems to have changed since our last visit, and for the better. Extremely good service, very clean and a new menu. It seems to be a move in the right direction. Everything was fresh and tasty. Build your own is a nice touch. Most any variation you can think... More

I've been to Bandido's more times than I can count. The employees are always cheerful and polite and their food is always delicious. The free chips and salsa are addicting and usually fill us up even before our food arrives. I usually get the enchiladas, either chicken or seafood. A word of advice, the seafood enchiladas are super rich, so... More
