Reviews for Bandido's Mexican Cafe

I’m not usually a fan of Mexican food, but Bandido’s is one of my friends favorite restaurants and we now go here every week! I’ve loved almost everything, the quesadilla, the tacos, the pollo Acapulco, the rice, except the mole was a little more on the spicy side with not enough of a chocolate flavor for me. Also a little pricey to go too often. Staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. Very busy on Thursday nights.

It was our first time coming here and it was a great experience! They were very kind and the food was delicious. It can be hard to find good authentic Mexican food these days but whenever in doubt, this is the place to go!

Visited on a saturday night to try their tacos. The place was crowded with college students and the service was thereby delayed a little. I got the carne asada tacos with corn tortillas and they were awesome. Meat was cooked perfectly and I liked how they put extra tortillas on the side. Definitely a good place to get authentic tacos.
