About Us

El Banditos is Iowa City's newest Mexican restaurant and bar. We feature hand-rolled tacos, fresh guacamole, enchiladas, burritos and more. All our food is hand made from family recipes and experience.

We proudly serve local produce as well as beef, pork and lamb from Solon's Pavelka Point and Decorah's Grass Run Farms. We also serve a wide variety of soft drinks (including Jarritos) and alcoholic beverages (margaritas!)

We're conveniently located on the Northside of downtown Iowa City. We're open until 10pm daily, serve dine in or carry-out, and we deliver in the Iowa City area. We also do catering.

Stop in and try our family recipes today; we think you'll like them as much as we do!
