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

    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.

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

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

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

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

    Painfully expensive
  • 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.

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

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

    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.

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

    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    My tip is to go next door to Chipotle. The food was less than desirable and overly salty.

    The snapper tostadas, calamari and hanger steak are extraordinary. Don't hesitate on ordering a pitcher of margaritas. This place is the best reason for coming into Georgetown. Hollah!
