I believe this place is just "Southside Cantina" now. They have good food, served quickly. It's a very cool, quirky atmosphere with friendly service. I like just the regular beef tacos.

Maybe they have some other tasty food I didn't try, but the burrito was disgusting, no flavor what so ever.

Thursday night: Dave Anderson (voted Number 1 Best Musician in the Valley) takes the stage and performs for three hours with nothing more than a beer for a break. Lovely Tess remembers what you want to drink and has it at your table before you've situated your Hush Puppies under your chair. Food is good. Music. Is. Great. Dave Anderson... More

The Bandito Southside was spawned from the Bandito Burrito on Governors Dr. There are a couple of other locations in Madison and US72. But Southside is the best cleanest location. I think the Southside location is independent of the others. But the menus at each are nearly identical Southside has a food side and bar/band side. Yet place still maintains... More

This restaurant does not have the eclectic 70s counter culture feel of Bandito Burrito on Governors Drive. Instead, the feel is that of a more spacious sports bar with a Bama football theme. The menu is similar to that of the Governors drive restaurant with plenty of vegetarian options, reasonable prices, and good quality. There are a few tables outside... More

We've eaten dinner here several times. The food has always been good-tasting and served quickly. Several nights a week live bands perform there too. The prices seem a little cheaper than some of the other Mexican restaurants in town. I recommend this place.

I've been going to bandito since the place opened. Tess, who runs the bar, is a friend along with Tom in the restaurant. lots of comfort food, good salsa, and I guess you just have to work your way thru the menue. Definately something there for everybody. The bar is usually hopping with great live music and terrfic drinks. And... More

I stopped in for lunch with some work folks and had a #10 combo. They have a really big beer selection which is great. The enchilada had a nice red sauce on it, the re-fried beans were very good and the taco that came with the meal was also very nice. I think this was comparable to Mexican that you... More

Trip Advisor has the wrong hours posted. Bandito Southside is OPEN late Monday thru Sat. Hours are 1100 am to 1:00 am every Monday through Saturday. Always fresh good, nonsmoking, family friendly. Live music nightly.

I love Bandito Southside. Been there for lunches, dinners, and just the bar & to see bands. These really are my favorite burritos on the planet, and I'm crazy about their salsa. Usually have just about any beer you could want. Good family atmosphere, too, though which I find is rare for a place that is 1/2 bar, but I've... More
