Great Place

Skylar was our waiter and we felt he did a great job with our group. He was attentive, friendly and on top of his job. The food was good, prices were acceptable. We chose this as it was next door to our hotel and did not leave disappointed.

Bandana's is probably my favorite BBQ place in St. Louis! I love the smoked meats, the potato salad and YUMMY fried corn on the cob!

I had the true pleasure of eating at this location while working in the St. Louis area, and I must say that I was very satisfied. This was the first Bandanas BBQ location that I have ever visited, and let me just say that the bar has been set very high for the rest of this franchise's locations wherever they... More

We visited Bandana's on Saturday August 1. We arrived late (9:00pm) the close at 10:00. We were happily greeted and sat. We saw the sign that said they were out of turkey, and after we placed our order, or server told us they were out of ribs as well. We had the pork and Chicken which was FABULOUS! Our server... More

I have been to other Bandana's locations and loved them, so I figured this would be the same....Not so much. The place is clean, atmosphere is good and the servers were wonderful, very friendly and helpful. The food just wasn't that great--not much flavor in anything, although I did love the garlic bread (which strangely didn't taste particularly garlicy). They... More

Ate here with a big family group. My husband and I split an appetizer, the chicken bbq nachos. We had eaten earlier and couldn't eat a whole meal. They were delicious! I'm not a very adventurous eater and was reluctant to try them, but I'm glad I did. Every one else at the table ordered different things and everyone was... More

After reading the reviews we decided to try it and out of the three of us none of us can honestly give the food a good rating, if this is what the locals call good barbecue than someone needs to get some real barbecue and bring here!!

We went to St. Louis for a robotics competition and were staying in nearby Fenton for out time there. Just down the street from our hotel was Bandana's Bar-B-Q. Great Bar-B-Q food, had the ribs, pulled pork, brisket, smoked turkey and smoked chicken along with their potato salad and their Bar-B-Q beans. Their sauces are excellent and the food tastes...

Bandana's was recommended by the front desk staff at our hotel when we asked for a Bar-B-Q recommendation. We were greeted warmly and service continued to be fast and efficient. We ordered the meal for two that included ribs, pork, beef and chicken, along with garlic bread and two sides. Our waiter ended up coming back from the kitchen to... More

I had high hopes for this place after reading all of the reviews but I am guessing they were having an off day in the kitchen. The service rates a solid 4, friendly and responsive, but the ribs and sausage off the "pick three" menu option were disapointing.The ribs were dry and chewy and in need of flavor and the... More
