It's difficult to spew more superlatives about Casa de Bandini, but I'll try. This past week was Restaurant Week in San Diego area and this restaurant rolled out some of their most delectable fare for us once again. I just have to rave about the Taco Loco. It's a giant tortilla shell with huge amounts of chicken or beef, refried beans, lettuce, tomatoes, quacamole, sour cream, and cheese. The chicken, which appears to be all white meat, is not spared by any means. More than simply a meal, this is a feast! And, during restaurant week, you get the choice of several appetizers at a great price. Don't miss the guacamole which is about the best in the area. A cross between creamy and chunky and just right. Finally, the salsa is spicy, and will pique your palatte for more. And maybe a Margarita while here? A great restaurant with excellent service. We'll be back in a week or so! .

Tex Mex at its very best! House made tortillas are excellenté. Large menu. Great service. Nearby shopping (Apple Store) is an added bonus.

My sister and her friend said this was their favorite Mexican food place and we just had to go. We were not disappointed in any way. These people really know how to prepare Mexican food I ordered the chili rellenos and they were some of the best I have ever had and the portions were large. My wife and sister shared a meal. And they along with my sisters friend couldn't finish their meals. The atmosphere is just great and the prices are very reasonable. I just wish this place was in the Portland Oregon area
