A really nice place for Mexican food. The eight of us tried a number of things from their $7.99 lunch menu and all were very pleased. I had a combination with a beef enchilada and a chicken quesadilla, and the traditional rice and beans. Also, a good salsa with the chips! Solid, above average Mexican style food. My wife's cocktail... More

There seems to be specials for certain hours especially on the tacos, which are good! We also liked the margaritas. We actually went two nights because we liked the patio seating area with the ocean view!! The second time we went there was live entertainment on the patio!

Been almost exactly a year since I've been back in Myrtle Beach. Had to go and check out Banditos Mexican restaurant on the beach since I was blown away by the food last time. Just like last time, ordered chili nachos and the beef chimchanga. Just like last time, the best chimi I've ever tasted. First the nachos. They don't... More

Stopped in for lunch looking for something different. We sat outside for the view, our waitress was prompt and attentive. The food was mediocre, I had a fish and a shrimp taco that I would honestly eat again but the beans and rice were both totally dried out and the beans were completely unseasoned. It was as if they were... More

Rather empty when we arrived at 6:30, but crowds showed up at 7pm despite it being the beginning of off-season. Groups seemed to be having fun, enjoying drinks and apps before ordering dinner. Our beers were served icy cold, just the way I like. Generous basket of chips with very mild salsa,but no offer of 'medium' or hot salsa that... More

Had lunch here and the food was great. I also had the best Pina Colada I have ever had. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service was also great. Banditos sits right on the ocean side and you can eat outside and look at the ocean and sand. Great views! Great food! Great drinks! Great service!

Great chips and salsa, friendly and fast service, offer both a vegetarian and gluten free menu as well as traditional Mexican fare. My cheese enchiladas were served with rice, beans pico de gallo, sour cream and lettuce and were quite tasty. My husband enjoyed the chicken chimichanga.

Stopped in for lunch following mini-marathon, restaurant was oddly empty for Sunday afternoon following major event that ended blocks away. We were asked if we preferred sitting inside or outside. View of "outside" seating on Ocean Blvd was not the best so we asked for interior. As we were being seated, noticed another patio behind cafe along the beach and... More

Had several meals here, the food was well prepared and flavorful, I suggest the seafood burrito, filled with creamy crab and grilled shrimp. The drinks are good, try the Orange Crush, a good way to get your Vi.t C ha ha.
