Taco Bandido
Ranked #42 of 144 Restaurants in West Monroe
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 August 2016 via mobile

A step above the normal fast food. This place is like Taco Bell on steriods. Fresh taste with a great hot salsa and the margaritas arent bad either.

2 Locations, 1 on Forsyeth in Monroe and the other is on Cypress in West Monroe.

The only problem I can find is at lunch, the tables seemed always dirty and a need of a good wiping down.

Thats is whats keeping this place from getting an excellent rating for a locally owned fast food restaurant.

This is a fast food taco joint that has been locally owned for over 40 years. I frequently eat here when I'm in the area. They have 2 locations, 1 in Monroe and 1 in West Monroe. I say that Taco Bell could learn from them because they actually fill your taco shell with meat, cheese and lettuce! It's very good! They are not stingy with the meat or cheese!! They also have their own sauce , it's not in packets !

Taco Bandido is a typical Mexican restaurant. Just about everything is put together right in front of you at the time you order. The ingredients are fresh and the staff is extremely competent.

However, there are better Mexican eateries in West Monroe, so comparatively speaking, I give it an average rating.

On a recent visit I ordered two beef enchiladas and one beef taco while my wife ordered the Bandido salad. They were freshly made and tasted fresh, but there was nothing particularly special about the meals. In other words, good but not great.

This is a locally owned fast food Mexican. It is far from your typical fast food restaurant. Everything is fresh and made when you order. My favorite is the meat chalupa with the meat and bean nachos a close second. They also have great margaritas. Go here for Mexican. You will not be disappointed.

I've never been here where I wasn't impressed with how friendly the staff is. They want to take your order and get you your food as fast as possible. I like that because when you're on your lunch break no one wants to spend all day in the line trying to get some fast food.
