I always get the beef nachos. They are so good I haven't tried anything else. I'm sure the test is awesome. But the nachos are divine. I go there for lunch. I don't care for how loud it is at dinner. Lunch atmosphere is excellent.

Bandito's is a staple for my family, with the delicious options for everyone and fantastic margs. We love catching the many sports games on all of the big screen tv's too. It's a standard for families in the Park Cities!

On our last visit the chips were stale and the food was served cold, which isn't what you want for enchiladas. We have some friends who love it, so we go with them occasionally, but it's not our favorite.
