Restaurant was a great choice for lunch. Our server knew we were in a hurry and she made every effort to get us on our way. The shrimp mango tacos were delicious and a great value.

After waiting twenty minutes for food, eating tomato paste for salsa with crumbs for chips, our fajitas arrived cold with no sizzle at all on our skillets. Paired with a 32 oz Patrón margarita on the rocks that tasted like sweet and sour mix on the rocks, and warm Coronas... A $52 bill well wasted. Don't waste your time eating... More

Have visited here a few times. Service has always been satisfactory. Food has also been adequate and filling. Great, they supply plenty of chips and sauce.

Make sure you are reading the review for the restaurant you plan to visit. This page mixes up the Bandido's locations and their new offshoot - Taqueria B. I have not visited Taqueria B, but have heard mixed reviews, mainly good. There are reviews here of the Northcrest Bandido's, and that location was horrible and has since closed. The Georgetown...

Great little local mexi-american restaurant. I don't know how authentic any of the dishes are, but they are very good. The service is always good. The food is always hot. The chips and salsa are worth the visit alone. This is a family favorite.

Visited for lunch during weekday, was apprehensive from appearance and layout of establishment. Has a cafeteria quality to it, and a long bar with stools. Upside is they let you choose how you would like to eat, at the bar, self serve and seat yourself, or be waited on full menu style. We chose full service and were very pleased.... More

I waited 5 mins to be seated and walked out after 20 mins of no one helpng me. I called the manager to complain and he didnt care about what I had to say. So, if I was you I would go to the one on State St they treat you like family.
