Not really near the Seattle Center or Belltown ?? this place is not really close to much of anything. It had been in the neighborhood for while before we even noticed it. The ??Western?? theme is a little gratuitous ?? but despite that it is a fun place with really good nachos. The female bar tender is way more friendly than the one male we??ve seen.

A great little neighborhood bar with a quasi-western theme. Don't worry, they don't overdo it with cowboy hats or anything. One side of the bar has a huge assortment of tequila, and the other side is stocked with whiskey. Staff is friendly and the bar food is quite tasty.

I haven't been here in a couple of months, but something/someone has to have changed in the kitchen. The tamales aren't even mediocre now and they used to be so good. And the queso chili dip had that burned-in-the-pan, scooped-off-the-top, flavor that is definitely noticeable and not very tasty. And their "made from scratch" chips were those round ones that you get in the really big bag from Costco. They used to have hands down THE best made-from-scratch bloody mary's in the city.........and this time you could tell it was from scratch, but not really all that good and definitely not good enough to order a second one. Really disappointing because I love Bandits and it's usually so good.

I'm sure I'll be back to give it another try or two...maybe it was just a bad night. The bartender was fantastic as always, though, so at least that hasn't changed.

Pros: Great bartenders every time, normally really good tamales

Cons: Tamales this time bland and mushy, drink not so great

It may look like a dive bar from the outside but this bar totally kicks but. I'm always happy with the service I get. Bartenders are awesome. These is even a group of guys that are allowed to have their weekly poker game there. It may be small but I like it.

My fave! I heart this place. Great drinks, great tamales, and the best bartenders in town. If you like a spicy cocktail, try the blazin? saddle - slightly sweet with a major kick. Everyone who I have introduced to bandits has fallen in love with its charm. I wish I was there right now?

Pros: location, the owners, service

The atmosphere is a little strange (too wide open, seemed like the Wild West stuff was thrown together at the last moment with props from Costume & Display) and the cocktails are too alcoholic and not very good. But hey--there's plenty of beer on tap and in bottles, and, seriously, the best tamales in Seattle. And you can't beat the happy hour prices. You can get out of there, tipsy, well-fed and only $10 poorer.

Enjoyable neighborhood bar with a great bar staff, fun local crowd, (really) good and stiff drinks, and killer tamales.

In Short
Dark red walls, accented by shingles and wooden shutters suspended from the ceiling, help create a frontier saloon atmosphere, while horseshoes and pistols hanging on the walls further evoke the theme. Patrons can sit at…
