We walked from our hotel into town. The town of Zihuatanejo is friendly, clean and charming. This restaurant had a wonderful patio and large screen televisions with U.S. football on. The food was incredible, the service was impeccable, but what made this restaurant the best was the service and attention from Armando Oregon. He is handsome, charming, friendly and the... More

We stumbled upon Bandidos and could not ask for a better Zihu experience. we had the molcajate and boy... that was delicious. Juan provided us 5 star service and even made a reco for a place afterwards(we need to dance off our calories :) ). Highly recommend it for a true Guerrero experience. And note: do not trust their "mild"... More

My husband and I went in to the town of Zihuatanejo last week looking for a place to eat dinner and watch an NFL game. We stopped at Bandido's. Everything was excellent! I ordered a nachos to start and had the chicken molcajete, a delicious bowl of hot broth full of chicken and vegetables, very inexpensive. My husband enjoyed the... More

The food was good, but no better than a lot of other restaurants we have eaten at. The bill here was the highest bill we had for our dinner, anywhere. Service was good, and entertainment was nice.

Bandido's has good food, service and wait staff that goes out of their way to make you feel very welcome. Armando is the man!!! The place to be for brunch, lunch or dinner, not a bad meal or snack.

A great spot. Sunday is a busy time in Zihuatanejo. So Bandido's was crowded and service a little slow. That said we had a great meal.

These guys really know how to accommodate you.... they go above and beyond to help you with anything. They've recently just opened a Wine and Tapa bar in a nicely decorated air conditioned building and I wish them the best of luck!!

At first glance Bandidos might look like a place to avoid if you are after a good Mexican experience: Numerous TV screens showing American Sport or music videos, clientele that look like they've been sent there from a big hotel and plenty of gushing staff. Sit down though and the waiters and waitresses are friendly and efficient and the food... More

Great food and staff. I avoided this restaurant for several years but this trip 2016/17 my husband and I took a chance and we were surprised. Music is great too.
