Its not often that an old friend comes back home from New York City and wants to have good Tex Mex for lunch, but I don't call my old neighborhood home any more for over 20 years now, so hitting Snider Plaza and stumbling upon Banditos was a pleasant surprise. We had both the margaritas on the rocks and frozen,... More

The food and the food was good. The only thing was that the restaurant was loud which made conversations very difficult.

Average Tex Mex in a loud environment. Crowded, small venue. The service is good. The food is good but not great. Small bar scene.

Ate here with friends. It is very crowded, dark, and very noisy and popular with SMU students. Could not hear anyone at our table due to the noise. It was also raining and I noticed the people at the tables on the patio were getting soaked. They should provide an awning. Food was average and the margaritas were very good.... More

Bandito's is a staple for my family, with the delicious options for everyone and fantastic margs. We love catching the many sports games on all of the big screen tv's too. It's a standard for families in the Park Cities!

On our last visit the chips were stale and the food was served cold, which isn't what you want for enchiladas. We have some friends who love it, so we go with them occasionally, but it's not our favorite.

We had a fun time at banditos but the food wasn't anything out of this world but it was delicious. It's typical American Mexican food. The guacamole was bland and tasted like mashed avocados. The service was very good. Staff is friendly. I would go back because it's comfort food.

I know....who orders and cheeseburger at a Mexican restaurant? Someone told us to try it, so we did and it is outstanding. It is the same burger as KT burger. Our kids love it too.

I've been here many times and almost always get the brisket tacos. They are delicious, meaty, moist, and flavorful. The guacamole is just average, needs some flavor. Service is usually good. Prices are normal, not Snider Plaza inflated. Good solid Tex-Mex. One of my favorites.

Banditos is a solid place to eat tasty food with your friends and enjoy an alcoholic beverage. I'm not a big fan of TexMex but I was still able to find something delicious to eat. On top of that, the place is host to a very intimate atmosphere. However, I have to criticize their margaritas. People rant and rave about... More
