We didn't try the one at the airport, but the restaurant was close to our hotel, so we had to give it a try. First thing to note: the parking is full, due to it's popularity. So, expect a bit of a hassle parking during busy times. This is actually a good thing as I travel a lot and tend... More

Caught lunch here with a business colleague when I was in El Paso a couple of weeks ago. She had chilaquiles and I had tacos. Both were tasty. The service was good but the decor really put you in the mood for a margarita. Perhaps on my next visit, I will check that out.

This was our second time there. We went about a year when visiting El Paso and loved it and expected no less this time. We weren't disappointed. The service was excellent, the food was delivered piping hot and was delicious.

We were only passing through El Paso (one night stay) and our hotel recommended Los Banditos to us. Went there and OMG, the food was great! We have never eaten better fajitas in our lives!

Went here for lunch on a holiday. Everything was really good! Prices were great. We had lunch with 2 huge margaritas and it was only around $30. Definitely go here again.

Have only been there with music, but what we've seen was superb! Great mariachis, nice little dance food, creative drinks, and above average snakitos! A fun place.

Went for dinner. The waiter was wonderful, and the manager stopped by to check on us. Very pretty restaurant for celebrations or just meals. Margaritas were amazing! Would definitely recommend !
