Every prince knows that the most effective way to wake up a sleeping beauty is not with a boring kiss, but with a single potent drop of fiery green chili. Awaken tired taste buds in royal fashion with today’s Groupon: for $7, you get $15 worth of Mexican fare at Burrito Banditos Nampa.
Owner Jose Morales and his family helm the kitchen at Burrito Banditos Nampa, where a concise menu of made-from-scratch Mexican favorites crushes south-of-the-border cravings. Flour tortillas cocoon succulent mounds of carne asada ($6.49) or tender chili verde ($6.29), packing beans, jalapeños, and dollops of sour cream into a massive burrito ideal for annihilating appetites or lobbing into the mouths of charging chupacabras. Ground-beef tacos anchor crispy corn tortillas flecked with lettuce, cheese, and pico de gallo ($2.09), and they serve as an appetizing side to salvers of cheese-smothered nachos ($2.99+) and melty quesadillas ($3.99+). Backless stools sidle up to burnished wood tables in the eatery's kaleidoscopic interior, where checkered floors and vibrantly hued walls enthrall eyes more than soap operas about astigmatism.
A self-described destination for things fresh, fun, and healthy, Burrito Banditos prepares a straightforward menu of Mexican cuisine. That menu catalogs giant burritos, carne asada, and chili verde burritos wrapped up in giant flour tortillas, as well as tiny tacos encased in a crispy corn shell. Burrito Bandito's kitchen also serves up tostada bowls, steak quesadillas, and piles of cheesy nachos.
