Taco Bandito started in 1968 as Taco Grande, located on South Van Buren in Enid, Oklahoma. Those were the good old days. Our customers from the ’60s and ‘70s still talk about the red shag carpet that was on the walls and the infamous Hank and Iggy dart game that hung in the dining room. The teenagers loved hanging out, meeting up with their friends and playing the jukebox.
In 1982, the Lash family purchased Taco Grande and eventually changed the name to Taco Bandito. In January of 2014 Karen retired and the Slater family took over keeping all of the same great flavors and atmosphere that our customers have come to love over the years.
Our customers from the good old days still eat with us on a regular basis and every year, especially around the holidays, our teenagers now in their 40s and 50s stop by to eat with us when they are in town. They tell us their memories and ask us when we will be putting in a Taco Bandito in their town or state because they have never found any quite as good. We love this. We love our customers old and new.
Taco Bandito mixes delicious food with a fun and festive atmosphere. Drop by anytime or feel free to give us a call. We look forward to serving you!
