My review on TripAdvisor:


Taco Bandito is right around the corner from the Soup Kitchen where I work and around the corner from the Fashion Institute of Technology campus where I went to school. The prices here are perfect for the normal college student as there is nothing on the menu over $10.00.

Taco Bandito IV

The restaurant is around the corner from Holy Apostles Church

The menu is more of a Tex-Mexican food selection with many popular items. The menu contains Nachos, Tacos soft & hard shell, Quesadillas, Enchiladas, Burritos, Tostadas, Tortillas and Fajitas. The portion sizes are very generous.

Taco Bandito III

They have a nice menu here that is reasonable

On the two trips I have made to Taco Bandito (See reviews on TripAdvisor), I have tried the Chicken Quesadilla which were two soft flour tortillas  loaded with fresh veggies, grilled chicken and cheese pressed together and served with sour cream.

The second time I visited, I had the Chicken Fajitas with Guacamole. The Fajitas was a large flour tortilla loaded with grilled chicken, onions and topped with fresh guacamole served with a side of hot sauce.

Taco Bandito II

The food is always fresh here

All of their items are bursting with flavor and the portion sizes are such that one piece of an item is more than enough for lunch. They get a nice lunch time crowd and the place is loaded with students from the surrounding schools.

The restaurant itself is not fancy but is clean and functional. It is a nice place to stay on budget.

My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
