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

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
