I got the Margarita Chicken Rice Bowl, and left satisfied. If anything, I would have traded a bit of the chicken for more avocado/veggies. The size of the bowl makes the portion look a bit smaller than it is. The chips and salsa were also good (salsa has some heat) and I used some of the chips to dip in my bowl. Dining room was full of college students, some of whom were a bit loud, but that might have been the particular night (post finals).

Had the pork burrito and it was pretty good. The refried beans were delicious but definitely could have had more.

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.

Horrible service. Prepare to sit there for 30 min before anyone notices. Will never go here again.

Love the shredded beef nachos and the churros!

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!

Long-time Franklin St restaurant with good food, great prices, and a cozy atmosphere. My go-to for a weekday sit-down lunch with friends.

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.

The Hillsborough location was a family favorite for a long time. Glad we can still get our Banditos fix in Chapel Hill, albeit not as often.

My favorite place for Mexican food in the metro. Great tasting, friendly service, convenient location on Franklin Street. Lunch menu prices are really good, too.
