El Bandido Mexican Restaurant set to open second location in Beckley

BECKLEY, WV (WOAY) – The popular Mexican Restaurant El Bandido in Oak Hill is opening up a second location in Beckley.

The new restaurant will be located at the former Peking China Super Buffet at 4050 Robert C. Byrd Dr. Owners say they’ve already begun renovations, and along with the new look, customers can expect new items on the menu.

“We are excited to open the new location,” says Julian Ayala, El Bandido Owner. “Stress will come with it and everything. We’ve got three good months to remodel and upgrade the building; we will be doing an outside patio, put tile in, paint, [and] just remodel [with] the furniture and everything. Hopefully, we will have everything ready in three months for the customers.”

The new location is set to open this summer.
