“Always a good stop”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

I love Chino Bandito. Almost always go there while in Phoenix. I particularly enjoy the jade red chicken in a quesadilla. And who doesn't love snicker doodles with dinner? The ones at Chinos are delicious!

“ChineseMex? Really?”
Reviewed 1 October 2012

Yes really. It works. Cheap, plentiful, fast & fun. Do it.

The combo plates allow you to mix flavors, and you can make a Chinese burrito if you like. Everything was fresh and good.

“Not tasty”
Reviewed 29 September 2012

I was expecting really tasty fusion food based on the previous reviews. So not the case. Although the servers were friendly and guided us through the ordering process the food was less than spectacular. The ambience reminds me of a college dorm. I had high hopes given that Guy Fieri was there but the Jade chicken was bland, the carnitas in a quesadilla were bland the only thing that had flavor was the jerk chicken fried rice and black beans. Sadly, I will not be back here. Spend your going out money elsewhere.

“Ultimate pig out spot!”
Reviewed 7 May 2012

When I first saw Chino Bandido profiled on TV, I knew I had to visit because it combines 2 of my favorite guilty pleasure foods; Chinese and Mexican. The menu is crazy confusing, but the staff is eager to help you through it and provide you with samples. Don't miss the jade chicken. I also found the pork carnitas and cuban style black beans to be very good. Chino Bandido is fast, inexpensive, friendly, and worth the trip.
