Love the menu options here and food combos. Big fan of the black beans and snickerdoodles. They have lots of different delicious entrees to choose from and it seems like the combinations are endless.

The food is like no other Mexican or Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. The food is like angels dancing on your tongue. I can be a bit spicy if you are into less spicy be sure and tell them when you order. They...More

Chino Bandido takes only what I imagine to be common in Mexico, that is, Mexican-Chinese fusion, and transfers it across the border to make something of a novelty that does no less than amuse and delight. The food makes for a good lunch and, while...More

The reviews I read of Chino Bandido did not disappoint. I ordered the two entree with Jade Red Chicken and Teriyaki Chicken. My husband had the BBQ Pork. They were all good, although the Jade Chicken was by far my favorite. It was perfectly crispy...More

You wouldn’t think these two would work well together but they do! Make your own combos you can’t go wrong every thing is so delicious. The snickerdoodles are must haves also.

Got the Jade chicken with chicken fried rice and WOW it was delicious. And they gave me a cookie! Very fast and reasonably priced, especially considering the quality of food and speed that they brought it out to me with.

We took our grandson here for his birthday. He had been telling us about how much he liked this place. It's in a strip mall, a real hole in the wall. But the food is fab. If it is good enough for Guy Fieri, it's...More

Janet at the counter is really friendly and gives taste spoons. The place is proudly a dive, rude t-shirts, best-of pictures on the wall, checkerboard flooring, chrome bumper siding and a lonely Charlie Brown Christmas tree. I've just moved back from Japan so have been...More
