El Banditos is not your typical Tex-Mex place like most Mexican restaurants in Iowa City. I would call it more "fresh Mexican". You will not find refried beans and shredded cheese all over everything; rather, they have delicious fresh-tasting entrees -- my favorites are the Pechugas de Poblano, the Red Snapper Burrito, and the Lamb Tacos (mmmm!). They also make a killer Sangria! Be forewarned, the only down-side to this place is that it can get pretty noisy when it's busy.
