RTD Reporting Bandito’s Coming Back the Same as it Ever Was

Sometimes you just want a crispy taco and a Tecate.




Good news for Museum District taco lovers. Bandito’s will be back and according to this article, there won’t be any changes. Sean McClain was the owner/operator of Bandito’s at it’s current location since 2002. The restaurant known as much for music and tex-mex closed at the beginning of the pandemic. McClain has now sold the restaurant to Sonny Heath who had this to say on RTD.

“I’m not changing anything, everything’s going to be exactly as it was,” new owner Sonny Heath said.

Heath has been in the restaurant and bar business since 1977. He also owns Chester Junction, a restaurant and bar in Chesterfield County, but he said he’s had restaurant and bars “everywhere,” including a now-closed Lakeside restaurant called Sonny’s Bar and Grill.
