This was a true delight. For years I have loved my BBQ, loaded with spicy, hot sauce. Lots of sauce covers or makes up for a lack of good taste. I have been educated and this meat stands on its' own. I did use the spicy sauce for my fries. Ribs had a superb rub. Pork was tasy and succulent.... More

The ribs are good, but that's about it. Not a fan of St. Louis bbq. We need some good Kansas City BBQ in this town.

Some BBQ you eat at it satisfies a craving. Bandana's BBQ you eat, and it sets the sets the standard for what a craving is. But, I'm concerned Dubuque citizens won't appreciate what they have. Bandana's BBQ isn't 'yankee bbq' it's southern bbq. And it would be a shame if more people don't discover and flock to Bandana's. Their loss... More

This is one of those restaurants that is great to take kids to and has good food for the parents. The menu selections were good (ribs, chicken, turkey,etc), children's menu was fantastic covering the usual suspects and then ribs as well. Plus a great coloring sheet to keep them occupied while waiting - which also when we went there was... More
