Friendly servers, large servings, tasty sandwiches (especially prime rib and tri-tip), cold beer, easy parking, and free peanuts. This is a fun place to go for dinner. If I had to compare, I would give Wood Ranch Grill a slight edge overall, but I'm a fan of Bandits.

I have been here a few times and always have trouble deciding what to order because it is so good. The portions are generous and served piping hot. I would say it was a little pricey but I always get two meals out whatever I order so that makes it look less expensive.

Bandits special sandwich creations were excellent and reasonably priced. Pulled Pork topped with cole slaw and the Prime Rib sandwiches were delicious, as were their creative side dishes.

My wife and I took my grandfather here. It's his favorite restaurant, and after eating there, I can see why. The service is great. Neat old west atmosphere, and the best BBQ around. We all got the half sandwich lunch special which was still a lot of food. Best tri-tip sandwich I've ever had. I even forgot my debit card... More

Most delicious BBQ I ever eaten. Best cole slaw. Service is great. Prices reasonable. In the heart of old town Camlarillo. Antique shops & a beautiful historic Catholic Church on the hill. Always beautiful weather.

I'll admit that's why I come here. The bar has free peanuts. You can get a big beer, a cocktail, or some cheap happy hour grub. Every time I order off the regular menu I regret it though because it just seems the food is overpriced for what you get. Better options are out there for dinner. The BBQ sauce... More

Great food items on the Happy Hour Menu and very good prices. The food that comes out is big and great to share. The onion rings look better than they taste. Burgers are great as well as the Fish Tacos.

My wife was on a business trip in Simi Valley and I tagged along. We were returning to our Oxnard hotel and decided to visit the Camarillo outlet mall. For dinner we were hungry for BBQ and were going to visit Wood's Ranch. But, we have those at home so we decided to try Bandits and we are glad we... More

The food here is great and the service is quick and good. I have been here multiple times, both for fun and for work (with clients) and everyone has always enjoyed the food. The atmosphere can sometimes be a little loud because they usually have sports on TV and rush hours can get very busy in a small space. Prices... More

We were visiting family (my father) in Camarillo and this is apparently one of their hang-outs. They usually do the bar, but we ate in the restaurant for this visit. Food was excellent (I had ribs and my wife had chicken sandwich). Really good BBQ. Love the peanuts on the floor (altho apparently in the restaurant they have to clean... More
