Taco Bandido is a nice place to go for a change of pace for Mexican fast food. The tacos are good and the prices are reasonable.

This place has really good Mexican-American style food. I highly recommend their combination tostada. Sanchos are very good also. I usually get the super sancho if that is what I am going to have. Taco burgers are also very good. Now I am going to let you in on a secret. If you want a good reasonably priced tenderloin they... More

It looks like a little hole in the wall but its the best place to get taco burgers around. I'd also recommend the super sancho. Its a very large smothered burrito. Totally delish. Good prices. A local favorite

It was a good price but it wasn't restaurant quality. It is more of a semi fast food experience. I didn't like walking into the restaurant and seeing cigarette trays on the tables and a bit of smoke in the air. It would have been more pleasant without that.

This little place serves up tasty Mexican food without that chain-store aftertaste. I recommend the half-and-half: five hard-shell tacos and five soft-shell tacos for about 15 bucks. The drinks are served in huuuuge styrofoam vats, so if you need to get your Pepsi on, this is the place. The salsa is unlike any other I've tasted; it seems to be... More
