About Us

El Bandido Mexican Restaurant opened its doors in 1976 in Spring Valley, New York and continues to grow in popularity thanks to its many loyal customers and staff.

       Through these past forty years, all of my customers have shared the experience of a passion for traditional Mexican food that was the foundation of meals in my household. The recipes that you enjoy today, I inherited and continue to prepare as they were passed on to me by my beloved mother, Hilaria Tello. She was and is the founding spirit of inspiration, which has guided me in the creation of this menu. 


      May you enjoy these savory recipes made with quality ingredients, as you, your family, and your friends dine here at El Bandido. Your loyalty and friendship continue to be a part of my enthusiasm for providing you with original authentic Mexican Cuisine.
