about Our Restaurant


Image 1

If you're craving the original Austin Style Tex Mex taste that hasn't been around since the 1970's and '80's -- You've found it. We flavor every item with a little Willie, Waylon, and a touch of Jerry Jeff Walker. We’re not a chain so our enchiladas are beefy, cheesy, and a little greasy…cuz that’s the best way. Each margarita is our own sacred blend of great tequila, orange liqueur, and lime. Locally owned and operated, Banditos is what Tex Mex should be.

why Choose Us

  • "Excellent food, great atmosphere, and good music. What more can you ask for? If your looking for a place to go hang out with some friends and watch some sports or just to get a bite to eat with family and relax this is the place to go to! The staff is friendly and the food is amazing. I would recommend the 12-gauge flautas or the trinity. Pretty much everything on their menu is hard to beat!"

  • "I love Mexican food, and after living in New York for the past three years I really missed it. Their queso is perfect. I could have eaten that alone for my whole meal, no they don't have queso in New York- they will bring you a bowl of shredded cheese though! I also had their huevos rancheros and sangria which were really good. I can't wait to come back and try their beerita!"

  • "Banditos rivals Mi Cocina as my favorite Tex-Mex in town. Whether you're craving Enchiladas, Ribeye Tacos, or fajitas, they all are great! The best part is you can wash it all down with the best margarita in town (In my opinion anyway). The chips are warm and the salsa is fresh. The beer on tap is served in giant frozen glasses. There is more Tex than Mex at Banditos but its my favorite place to go in town when I get a craving."

  • "Finally a GREAT Tex-Mex (emphasis on the Tex) place in Snider Plaza!!!! I love the atmosphere, great service, and the food is excellent (I always get the build-your-own queso to start, cheese enchiladas with freshly chopped onions or fajitas - which comes with all of the extras, you don't even have to ask, which is SO nice that they don't skimp on you, and I finish things off with the sopapillas...amazing) and affordable."
