This was originally in Irish Hills, but moved to this Ann Arbor location some years ago and it is very worth checking out. The owner's run the restaurant and they are there all the time. They are kind, want you to have a good experience and the food is amazing. The atmosphere is not super soothing, but at night it's... More

This is in a fun location downtown. Unfortunately, they charge for chips and a small bowl of salsa. The service was quite slow and there weren't many people in the restaurant. We had enchiladas, tacos, and nachos. They were decent but not great.

This small, communal table spot, has absolutely mouth watering sandwiches, served with fries in the sandwich.Their Cuban "milkshakes" are raved about and only add to the calorie rich menu. This is a quilty pleasure, at most once a week or less, unless you are a local college student or marathoner!

During the Annual Ann Arbor Art Fair we were in need of food, rest and ice tea! We stopped at Banditos, ordered a beef (shredded) burrito, a chicken chimichangas and ice tea (they brew fresh) - they were mammoth! The food was delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant - it's not fancy, but, it has great food!

Bandito's is an authentic Mexican restaurant with a friendly, welcoming atmosphere. The cheese enchiladas and quesadillas are to die for! The staff is always very friendly and accomodating for food allergies. The food is reasonably priced and delicious! It's one of my favorite spots in town!

Everything about this place is fantastic from the service to the decor to the food. The times I've been the waiter has been very on top of everything even when it has been really busy. The salsa and guac are fantastic as is all the food I've ever had here. It's really surprising how many places neglect the basics but... More
