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

This is a tough one. There are many good things but there are some places that do certain areas better. I frequently travel to Camarillo on business so I appreciate that bar setup in Bandits more. Lots of TVs and they actually have the volume on so you can hear whats going on. At the Wood Ranch there are only... More

I have eaten here many times and always have a good meal. I love pulled pork and chicken, so I always get this here. My husband and son get other things though and we always look forward to coming back. They highly recommend the steaks and ribs, with the ribs being their favorites. Give it a try; it's just good...

I can only review the bar section of Bandits as we did not eat in the restaurant. We visited twice during Happy Hour and had great service, food and drinks! Happy Hour drink specials are great and the appetizers were delicious as well. The Pulled Pork sliders were my favorite along with the onion rings. Loved the dark old town... More
