THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bandito's Burrito Lounge Restaurant Review

: Take one neon pink tortilla and fill it with a savory mix of beans and shredded pork and you have the specialty Bandito burrito. It is surely typical of the offbeat Tex-Mex fare at this local favorite and its many city locations. There's not much on the menu that doesn't have a chili theme---except for the ubiquitous grilled chicken Caesar salad---so don't come hungering for down-home catfish or up-East chowders, though the weekend brunch does offer a few non-Tex-Mex dishes, including apple jacks, French toast, granola, and cheese blintzes. You'll find a pretty mixed crowd of hard hats, good-old boys and college kids, so obviously, anything goes here.
