This location is where I was introduced to Bandana's BBQ. This place has it all over Famous Dave's. I will make a point to find their other locations. the meat is well smoked- usually I find most BBQ joints don't smoke the meat enough or they don't smoke it at all, just slow cooked on the grill. But this place... More

I'm from the South and we take our BBQ seriously there. This is the best BBQ I've had up "North". They smoke it to perfection! And, the sauces are incredible. They have one to suit everyone's taste. Everything from mild & sweet to... I'm not going to touch it sauce. Very friendly staff!

Tim and I had lunch here. The Beef lunch was great and Tim enjoyed the pulled pork. Our waitress was exceptional considering the crowd. She is about to graduate with a degree in Respiratory Therapy so at some point they will lose a great waitress. Coffee is Ronoco which is great because I am not a fan of Starbucks coffee.... More

we dropped by for lunch. Our server was exceptional and set the stage for a great meal. We sampled the turkey, pork, and ribs. The turkey was very moist breast, but not very smokey. The pork and ribs were the best. The baked beans, cole slaw and potato salad were very good. Lots to eat and still brought home enough... More

When pulling into the parking lot not only do you see a pile of wood but the aroma of burning wood permeates the air and makes your mouth water. The meat has a wonderful smoky flavor that does not overwhelm the meat itself, was very tender and lean. We found the coleslaw to be delicious and I believe homemade in... More

Not only was the food great "I love ribs" but the price and service were perfect. Next time the family and I are in town we will visit again! Here's the funny part, we're from Texas so we know BBQ. At least we think we do.

I enjoy Bandanas! They have a fried corn on the cob that is really good. It does stick to your teeth:) The ribs are good but the sweet tea is awesome! There are areas that are semi-private if you have a big group it is great for that. I like Bandanas but I do prefer Smokey Bones on down the... More
