Nice layout and ambience. I'm just not a big Mexican food fan. But the chips and salsa were good, as was the Chile rellano. If you like Mexican , you'll like this place. It is actually located in an old bank

Very good Mexican food, with more of a Sonoran flavor rather than the typical Southern California style or Baja California. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. The restaurant is in old town Temecula, and is situated in a historic building, hence the...More

As the name states, this is a restaurant in an old.... and I mean old bank. They have an outdoor patio and bar area. Inside you get the vibe of the old west bank. Mexican food is authentic and delicious.

Friendly staff at lunch time. Not crowded and food service was quick. Large portions of traditional Mexican fare. A bit bland but good chips and salsa.

I really prefer the patio area to inside. So much more lively and the food seems to taste better too outside. The margaritas are sooooo yummy. I prefer to go to The Bank instead of across the street to Rosa's.

Three of us arrived at the Bank tonight for dinner. We were seated outside and it took 20 minutes to place a drink order and the place was not at capacity. We ordered at the same time and I had time for two drinks before...More

Wonderful story behind this building. The owners are awesome. We learned so much from them about the town and The Bank. Margaritas are served in a very special way. Great guacamole. I definitely recommend to stop by if you are in town.

My friend and I ate here because it had seating available inside on a 103 degree day and the old bank building was intriguing. We were glad we chose it. The guac was fresh but could have been more substantial. The chips are thick cut...More
