Good Que

We Had the St. Louis style spare ribs and they were quite good. Nice smoke ring and good flavor. The portions were large. They have several sauces so you should find one you like. Service was mediocre but not overly bad just inattentive.

Our favorite bbq of all time. Besides service, great food at a very reasonable price. You can also purchase their lunch portions at any time. This is huge for seniors like me who can't eat a huge dinner.

We always get the sampler with beef, Pork, and ribs so we don't miss out on anything. If you like corn on the cob try this fried version. You will love it! This is a very laid back atmosphere where anyone is comfortable whether they are wearing a tuxedo or shorts.

We enjoy a great new place. St Louis bbq is the best. You have to make this a mandatory stop on your trip.

I always love going to Bandana's BBQ for lunch or dinner. In terms of price, dinner is a little more expensive than your typical BBQ place, but they do have $5 specials which fill me up just perfectly! Lunch prices are definitely worth it… same quality food as dinner, just slightly less amount. Your BBQ comes smoked, no sauce. They... More

I stopped here I didn't like some of their sides but the meat was great! Service on that day was a little sidetracked had one special customer and it wasn't me. Never came back to see if I needed anything not even a refill way too much ice in the drink and way to light mix on their fountain drinks!... More

We went on a Sunday for lunch. Apparently this is a very popular place for Sunday lunch as we had to wait 15 minutes or so for a table. I had the sausage plate. The sausage was mild but fairly good tasting. The skin around the sausage was tuff. The available sauces we're tasty. The beans were good. My wife... More

Your meat comes to the table smoked, but without BBQ sauce. They have a nice selection of sauces on each table and the servers are happy to explain them to you. The green beans and garlic bread are good. The potato salad is not my favorite. Its' a bit more expensive for a BBQ place, but the food is good... More
