Gringo Bandito Hot sauce has announced that they have partnered with Fullerton, California’s Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen to create a special taco for their new menu. I had a chance to try the Cali Bandito Tacos at a media preview.
Thee tacos are made with house made tortillas and filled with carne asada that have been marinated in a sauce that includes Gringo Bandito Red sauce. The tacos are topped with cheddar cheese, sour cream and avocado creme. If you are not familiar with the Gringo Bandito name and the rock star affiliation, read on.
The tacos were delightfully fresh and the marinated beef was tender and nicely seasoned. There was a bit of spice, but it was not overwhelming. Paired with fresh tortilla chips and salsa and served with beans, it was an awesome meal. It was especially good with a Modern Times IPA.

Makes for a great meal in a fun spot.
This was my first time to Slidebar Fullerton. Sadly, it was not in Fullerton when I attended CSUF because I would have been there every week as the vibe was cool.
Both Gringo Bandito and Slidebar will be at OC Weekly’s popular Summerfest on June 17th at Newport Dunes.
If you did not know, Gringo Bandito Hot Sauce was founded by Dexter Holland (frontman for the awesome Southern California group, The Offspring) in 2004. Sidenote, I love The Offspring, and their hits Your Gonna Go Far, Kid, and Come Out and Play are seriously good tunes.
Slidebar Rock-N-Roll Kitchen was founded in 2006 by Jeremy Popoff. They offer live music, great food and drinks, in a spacious open air setting. It is located at:
122 E Commonwealth Ave
Fullerton, CA 92832-1909
Gringo Bandito is now sold in Australia, Japan, Canada, Finland, Switzerland, UK, Poland, Germany, Belgium, Hungary and coast to coast in the US. It is also in the top ten on Amazon.com’s highest customer rated hot sauces.
