Best Taco for Stoned People

Bandito Food Park

Bandito Food Park
calls itself a “one-of-a-kind restaurant and event venue featuring an atmosphere that expresses an outer parklike celebration complete with fun food and beverages offered to match.” So how does that manifest for the Columbia Tusculum eatery? The restaurant brought outdoor vibes in by adding a vintage trailer and shipping-container-esque counter to order from, incorporating fake turf, setting up picnic tables and string lights, and decking the space out in murals by artist Kim Goins. The menu itself offers a variety of eats — like one would find at a food park or food hall — and runs the gamut from tacos, burgers and chicken to hot dogs, salads and bowls. If you wind up at Bandito with the munchies, they have some very 4/20-friendly snacking, from barbacoa-topped mac and cheese and stacked nachos to the Dude Seriously taco. This Dude Seriously features seasoned chuck, shredded cheese, ranch dressing, crushed Mexican Takis chips and housemade sauce. banditocinci.com.
