Taco Bandito started in 1968 as Taco Grande, located on South Van Buren in Enid. Those were the good old days. 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 everyone had come to love over the years.
Customers from the good old days still eat at Taco Bandito on a regular basis, and every year - especially around the holidays - teenagers now in their 40's and 50's stop by to eat when they are in town. They tell stories, share memories, and ask when Taco Bandito will be expanding to their town or state because they've never found anything quite as good. Taco Bandito loves their customers old and new.
