Good meat and good sides

Nice smoky meat, tender and tasty. Very good barbeque beans and cole slaw. Large, comfortable, clean environment, friendly staff. Ate there twice in a week, could eat there every day. Prices very reasonable. Variety of sauces are interesting but absolutely not necessary for the meat.

The BBQ was decent. I expected the sauces to be to better. I felt there were pretty average and tasted pretty similar to each other, other than the mustard base. The hot BBQ sauce was not hot at all. The lunch meal I ordered had a good portion, and came with buttered Italian bread. Prior to ordering I asked if... More

Food is pretty good for a chain restaurant, but there are non-chain BBQ places in the area that are much better (like Hick's in downtown Belleville). Ribs are great as long as they don't give you the ones from the short-end of the rib plate. One of our favorites is the smoked sausage. We also fancy the fried donut holes... More

The atmosphere is awesome: very country theme and my kids especially love the washtub lights. The servers have always been friendly and outgoing. The portions are large and delicious. And not just the BBQ - the BBQ is great - but the sides are also worth mentioning. The BBQ beans are delicious, the okra is crispy, the fries are perfectly... More

What made this a great meal was the service. For a chain BBQ it was good food for sure but lots of good BBQ in and around St Louis. What made it was the service and atmosphere. Would go back again..

The food is amazing and they have the best servers around! I frequently visit this location as well as the others in the area but this location is worth checking out, I have never been disappointed! It can be tricky to find since it is located in a " shopping center" Winchester plaza behind the bank but I would recommend... More

This was our (my wife and I) first time eating at Bandanas. We were not sure what to eat so I grabbed my phone and opened "trip advisor" to decide on some worthwhile dinner. #1 in fairview and most certainly for good reason was bandanas. Upon walking through the front door we were greeted with amazing smells and smiles! The... More

Just got back from eating at Bandanas. The southern style pulled pork sandwich was awesome. I wanted two of them. My Mother-in-Law did find a hai in her food, but the manager was super quick to come over and apologize. He comped the meal for us. She didn't even return the meal... she finished eating it because it was so... More

We took our adult children to Bandanas last night. They raved about the smoked pork. I had the turkey and it was delicious. The prices couldn't be beat for the amount of food they give you. Highly recommend.

This is a small chain in the St Louis area. All of the locations are very good, but I live near the Fairview spot so I visit here with my husband a lot. I love the Turkey and the Beef, and he always gets Ribs and Turkey. The turkey is moist and smokey without having any kind of rub or... More
