Great alternative to Wood Ranch

Good food, drink specials and generally a good vibe there. In old town Camarillo which is a little artsy area. Good weekend walk for art and shopping.

After work, I wanted to wind down, so I went to Bandit's Grill and Bar in Camarillo. As soon as you walk in, you feel the fun of the place in the Bar. Free Peanuts and throw the shells on the floor, TV sets showing the various games going on, the place is just FUN. Ordered a Newcastle Ale in... More

Food selection was good and the items we chose tasted great! Beer selection and service were also very good. Overall, one of the better dining experiences during our trip.

Let's be clear: this is a basic BBQ joint. The food is cooked over oak wood in the California Central Coast style. It is not "corporate BBQ" like Chris & Pitts and not "yuppie BBQ" like Wood Ranch. We recommend the Tri-tip sandwich, garlic fries and Ranch beans. The service is attentive and the beer is cold. The televised sports... More

My wife and I ate here on Monday night and took advantage of their great dinner special on Monday evenings. The food was delicious, service was fast and it was a good bargain. The BBQ is great. With the special you get two entrees (we had tri tip and prime rib), two sides each (lots to choose from - the... More

My husband and daughter love Barbecue, so we decided to go to this restaurant. The atmosphere is great and the waitresses are really friendly and attentive. My husband ordered ribs, my daughter ordered a tritip sandwich, and my son and myself ordered steak tacos. Even though the food was delicious, the portions were very small for the price. Our steak...

After a day of shopping in the Premium Outlets, we wanted a good relaxing meal. Just down the road (south on 101) is Ottavios Italian Restaurant, but most often that place is packed. A block down, we saw Bandits Grill & Bar, so figured, why not some BBQ? The restaurant is western rustic, but nice. Service was fantastic; drink refills... More

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.
