    Potato wedges are a great choice for these carne asada fries, possessing the structural integrity to stand easily with the beef, refried beans, and other toppings. Great drunk food!

    You can't go wrong with trying a bit of everything. All time fav: mango chicken enchiladas. Also love the Bandera sampler. Dope art and music but definitely reserve a spot on the weekends.

    All entrees come with your choice of one equally appetizing starter: pozole (spicy chicken soup), bean dip, seasoned fries, sweet potato fries or goat cheese salad Read more

    Some of the best wings we've ever had: cooked perfectly, sweet but not too sweet, perfectly sauced

    Try the Taffy Apple Empanada - Delicious! Best eaten warm, right when it's brought out. Just the right amount of Apple, super sweet ice cream!

    Order the green tea horchata with the el Diabolito shrimp. The burn of the shrimp is brutal, but that tasty rice milk helps.

    Try the Pozole - Super tasty, just the right touch of spice for a kick. Some added salt, but I think it was the right blend.
