Great choice

My wife and I frequent Bandits on a regular basis. She loves their prime rib sandwich as the meat is very tasty and especially tender. Consistently good food coupled with a cozy environment and friendly service. An excellent lunch or dinner choice.

This menu is extensive! They also let you mix and match - for instance, I got my Prime Rib sandwich on garlic bread instead of the normal roll. Also, upgraded to Onion Rings on the side! Our waitress was very friendly and service was impeccable. I thought the place would be loud as it was a Sunday night, but it... More

Located in Old Town Camarillo this restaurant is a remnant of the past. We had the rib eye steak. It was huge. We shared a dinner. Everything was large, the steak, baked potato and caesar salad, much more than one person could eat. It was excellent, cooked perfectly. The service is great. I would recommend this to anyone who wants... More

Bandits is definitely a main stay and a choice restaurant to go to when in Camarillo. Atmosphere and staff are charming. One of my favorite choices at Bandits is the BBQ Chicken Salad. There smaller portion is just right.

We went here on the last night of visiting family friends as it is one of their close-to-home go-to places. The kids loved the Western vibe and that they could toss their peanut shells on the floor. I tend toward gluten-free-ed-ness so I got a turkey burger with cheese, hold the bun. It was great! I think with a bun... More

This place is known for it's trip tip sandwiches, which are very good. Past that however, I was not impressed. They try to be "fancy California food" when they should just stick to less fancy food to accompany their great tri tip sandwiches. That said, they where crowded and everyone else seemed very happy with their meals.

Have had three meals here and it never got better. I don't understand the appeal. It's not cheap. It can't hold a candle to Wood Ranch which isn't great but the best in the area. Just really really below average bar food
