Stopped by and grabbed some drinks in the outdoor bar area with a bachelorette party. Although we didn’t get any food, the staff took our drink orders and brought out some chips and salsa. Very attentive service and a fun atmosphere.

The Bank is an authentic bank building and part of old Temecula. You can get great Mexican food and they have tasty margaritas. Be sure to check out the patio bar and fun night life.

Nice layout and ambience. I'm just not a big Mexican food fan. But the chips and salsa were good, as was the Chile rellano. If you like Mexican , you'll like this place. It is actually located in an old bank
