    Pork belly taco is to die for. The margarita pitchers are a bit small for the price but the drinks were strong.

    Great margaritas on tap. Love the chicken tacos (cheap at happy hour). Fun atmosphere.

    First you're like, "What? Shrimp fundido? Seafood and cheese? That sounds gross!" And then you're like, "Hi, ten more, please." Also the tuna taquitos.

    Blood orange margaritas are great

    Came after midnight...dark bar, rap music but knowledgable bartenders. Craving guacamole but the kitchens closed

    The crispy Brussels are off the hook! Alambres (hanger steak) and tuna taquitos are delish. Enchilada verde great option for veggies.

    Grab the Pineapple Fruta Margarita!! Brock makes it best!!!!!!!!!!!

    The rumors are true: this place struggles. Mediocre food, everything over-priced, bad service, and no soul.

    Drew Bennett · January 11, 2014
  • Michael D.

    Not impressed with the menu or the venue. The servings were tiny and overpriced. And my friend, that ate with us, got sick later that night from what he ate here.

    Michael Davis · October 2, 2013

    Portions are very small and expensive but the foods are great! Must try nachos and alambres. I also had the best quesedilla ever! Good job!

    Bandolero in Georgetown suspended with "lots of flies." no hot water, food at risky temps. @wusa9. Passed reinspection. Passed reinspection. Unidentified worker blamed it on landlord dispute

    Never been more dissatisfied with service at a restaurant waited an hour and a half and still haven't been served all our food. #absurd

    Ask for Brock! Best bartender ever!

    The El Dorado is pretty awesome as well as the Casa En Fuego. Que Bueno¡

    Carl Erickson · June 9, 2013
  • Denise G.

    Warning: Margaritas are actually just Tequila straight with a splash of lime. I'm not complaining though ;) Food is overpriced. It's basically tapas, not meals. Taste good though. Service is slow.

    Denise Guzman · June 1, 2013
  • Katerina M.

    Not great service. Time between dishes was long. Waiters were not really paying attention. Also, since the kitchen is open we could see the prep & while cutting apples a woman kept eating slices.

    Katerina Matsa · May 28, 2013
  • Kat L.

    Go for happy hour only. Pork taco and guacamole were great for $5. Lamb was ok. Wouldn't pay full price here.

    Really one of the best brunches in the city

    Painfully expensive

    Federico Ling · March 30, 2013
  • Paulina C.

    The food tastes good but the portions are ridiculously small. You have to order many dishes so you can feel full. Very expensive for what you get.

    Paulina Chávez Alonzo · March 30, 2013
  • Reuben I.

    This place is fantastic. Try the Red Snapper Ceviche and the Tuba Taquitos.

    Reuben Ingber · February 24, 2013

    Get the snapper ceviche as an app- it is far better than the tuna tartar!

    ECS · February 17, 2013
  • Michael Q.

    The suckling pig tacos are fantastic.

    Michael Quisao · February 10, 2013
  • Ana R.

    Try the tuna taquito, the queso fundido and the suckling pig. In that order.

    Ana R. · February 2, 2013
  • Amanda Z.

    Fresh guac, unreal snapper ceviche, and great pork tacos.

    Amanda Zuckerman · January 5, 2013

    Suckling Pig tacos are to die for!!!

    Bryan Rosenthal · December 9, 2012

    Solid ceviche but Jesus the service at the half-empty bar is awful.

    Ryan Kearney · December 8, 2012

    What everyone else said: they sure pour their cocktails heavy!

    Chris · December 6, 2012
  • Evan S.

    Horrific serving size. $12 for 2 very tiny tacos? Are you kidding me? If you live in dc, keep walking. Portion size is bordering on abusive. Even the very high quality margaritas can't make up for it.

    Evan Samek · November 10, 2012
  • Silvana U.

    small portions...but the crazy corn is GOOD!

    Silvana Urueta Salas · October 15, 2012

    Fantastic Mexican small plates! The suckling pig tacos and mahi mahi especially

    Jonathan Robinson · September 27, 2012
  • Kelly V.

    Suckling pig tacos and raw tuna taquitos are amazing. Would highly recommend ordering 2-3 small plates per person.

    Kelly Velez · September 15, 2012
  • Megan W.

    This will be misspelled because I'm already drunk -- but that's the point... Extremely heavy pours and innovative drinks. Don't try them all in the same night or you'll end up sleeping it off outside.

    Megan Wilson · August 17, 2012
  • Lauren S.

    Absolutely delicious! But definitely over priced for the small portion... Great for an appy!

    Lauren Szurley · August 17, 2012
  • DC C.

    The service leaves so much to be desired I can see why they add in 30 percent tip, otherwise they wouldn't get one. I will never return.

    DC Cedar · August 1, 2012
  • Debbie W.

    Pricy, but not too bad if sharing as a light lunch. The Chicken BBQ tacos and Crispy Yuca are must-trys.

    Try what we’ve found to be the perfect summer soup: Bandolero’s tomatillo-and-avocado gazpacho is poured over marinated watermelon and orange, for a creamy, tart and utterly refreshing result: Read more

    Ok service. Food was good. The air was out - so not a very comfortable dining experience.

    Patrick Schuerer · July 11, 2012
  • K T.

    Siki pak dip & suckling pig tacos = yum but overall this place is about small, over-priced tapas. Ideal for a drink and a snack IF you're already in Gtown.
