This place has that Western feel to it. While their food is pretty much average, the atmosphere and friendly people is where it's at when you want beef.

This place was recommended by locals when I recently was in town on business. I'm so glad they did. Great food and service. Only problem was they apparently don't offer bread unless you ask for it. So if you want it, ...

this place is always packed. however, I like the idea where you can grab peanuts from a big barrel...take it to your table....and you can just basically dump the empty shells on the floor. the place can get slow....but if you are looking for a fine steak place, go to woodranch instead.

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
