Loved the food but this time I found the portions to be a little smaller :-( Salsa is always a winner. Loved there grilled veggies. Will go back again.

When visiting Hillsborough, stop and have a taste of what good Mexican food is. We ate there today and the price is so affordable and they over fill the plates. Any restaurant in Hillsborough is busy at lunch but Bandidos still manages to get their...More

Doesn't distinguish itself from its thousands of "mexican" restaurant brethren across the country. Basic tex-mex fare in a basic ambiance.

Scary tacos (what's that smell??); roaches in the restrooms, and margaritas that taste faintly of Dr. Bronner's Soap. Pass!

If you are looking for delicious poblano pepper with shredded beef, go to Bandido's Mexican Cafe. You won't be disappointed. We had lunch there recently and it was so good, we ordered 2 to take home.

Very fast, had great recommendations from our waitress. Solid stop. Its hard to get a five star out of me and I feel I've been to more authentic places, and being from Chicago I'm very spoiled with amazing unique taco joints. I'd still highly recommend.

The food was good. I had the San Antonio burrito with steak. It was very seasoned, however there was only one waitress working during lunch time. She did a good job serving all the people. They need to hire another waitress.
