Bandito burrito review - Edit

I enjoyed eating here and the food is alright when you have to quick pick stuff. The inside space is crowded and some of their food is good but it all tastes like cheap things you can buy from a grocery store. When I ate cheese I enjoyed their nachos but for the price their portions are small. It's not exceptionally clean there and being able to see in the back you can see where hand washing and gloves are not a regular thing. People have long hair down and fluffy beards exposed right over food. Cross contamination is a big issue and none of the staff will tolerate even a small complaint in person without cursing at you or getting rude. The same works for social media sadly. They have old employees go to bat for them on things that should be taken seriously, not argued with. Their customer service is crappy with most of the staff and they do not have very many vegan or vegetarian options.

Pros: Quick service

Cons: Small portions, not clean enough and bad customer

Review for Bandito Burrito Southside - Edit

We go to Bandito's at least once a week. As a vegan, I am very appreciative of their willingness and ability to offer vegan alternatives. It is super cheap, the staff is super nice, and the food is incredibly delicious. They offer live music many evenings -Microwave Dave is a regular performer and there are several other bands that rotate. Just a friendly, informal atmosphere and a great neighborhood eatery.

Pros: Delicious Vegan/Vegetarian options, Inexpensive, Live Music many evenings

Cons: None

Best burritos I've ever had - Edit

I think they put crack in their food. When I don't have any, I find myself going through withdrawls. The green bean burrito is awesome and the raven is beautiful. I like the whole in the wall feel. If you want a more upscale experience, go to one of the two others in Huntsville.

Not clean enough - Edit

Bandito Burrito wasn't clean enough for me. There were several veg selections that featured various arrangements of rice, beans, and tortillas. There weren't enough vegetables. The salsa was bland. Lunch was extremely inexpensive. I would have gladly paid four times as much for a meal with a lot of fresh ingredients. I wouldn't go back.

Pros: cheap

Cons: dirty, few fresh ingredients, bland

I am not a vegetarian - however I do choose to eat the vegetarian side of the Bandito Burrito menu - (no cheese) - I recommend the green bean burrito - add their hot sauce. I have always found the service to be good and the food to be fresh - oh and they make a great guacamole (sp?)

Pros: locally owned, fast service, fresh food

Cons: less options, not low fat

Bad - Edit

My experience was way different than the others. My food was bland, service was super slow (waitress passed by at least a dozen times to say she'd be with us soon). We we there for lunch, and the waitress seemed pissed that we weren't ordering alcohol and asked several times if we were sure we didn't want beer or whatever. We saw our order sitting, waiting to be delivered for at least ten minutes. (edited-see ToS). AND it was way to expensive. My black bean tamales were almost $10 and very bland. Needless to say, we won't go back.

Pros: Vegetarian/ vegan options

Cons: slow service, rude waitstaff

Very friendly staff! - Edit

We came here last night, after being turned away from the NON-vegan-friendly Stanlieo's Sub Villa. As soon as I went in, I saw a vegetarian menu. I asked the girl working there if everything on the vegetarian menu was vegan, and she said yes, if you ask for it without cheese. She then continued to tell me what everything was and explained what all I could get. I really just told them to give me whatever was good. I ended up getting a buritto, some sort of tostada, a tamale, chips, salsa, guacamole, and a drink. All for under $10!! Great value.

One bad thing that happened, though.. There was a dead fly in my chip basket. I don't think it was a case of the restaurant being dirty.. I just think it happened. It won't stop me from coming back again whenever I'm in Huntsville.

I was just blown away by how nice an accomodating the people that worked there were. Very nice people.

One other thing.. The booths are a tight squeeze. Me and my boyfriend are both average size, and it was a bit uncomfortable sitting next to each other on one side of the booth. I would recommend getting a table.

Pros: friendly staff, very accomodating, great value

Cons: cramped booths

Great Cheap Option - Edit

A large number of vegetarian and/or vegan options. Tell them at the counter that you're vegetarian or vegan, and they'll happily suggest things and are willing to make any adjustments you might need. They're great people, and many of the employees at both locations (Governor's or Madison/Main Street) are themselves vegan. Try the green (sauce) bean burrito! It's supposed to look like a dive, because that's where the best food is always found!

Pros: great prices, surprisingly tasty, knowledgable employees

Cons: some meat on menu, often crowded
