We were greeted & seated within a couple minutes. Our waitress was friendly, attentive & nice to our 4 year old. I had the pulled pork sandwich & it was delicious! Fried green beans were yummy. My husband & daughter had the pulled chicken & loved it. We will be back!

I am usually one that like to eat at local restaurants when on vacation. We were hungry for BBQ and was going to Wobly Boots. But there was an hour and half wait. So we found Bandara's and was pleasantly surprised. Service was good and food was tasty!

Bandana's is a barbeque restaurant definitely worth making a trip to. It's rustic/casual, the prices are affordable, and above all the food is great. I had the Southern Style Pork sandwich. The pork was tender, full of flavor and the cole slaw on the sandwich really topped it off. My husband had the pork and beef sandwich, and my daughter... More

Skip it. The staff was rude, the food was cold, and the food tasted simply bland and lifeless. The sauces tasted kind of stale, and the bottles holding them were dirty and crusty....it's obvious the rude staff has no pride in what they do. Restrooms had an overwhelming foul odor as though they hasn't been cleaned in a week. We... More

We now live in a red meat and pork locale. Barbecue, smoked meats, and thick slabs of meat are common so locals discriminate. Most locals recommend Bandanas so we tried the Osage Beach location for lunch recently. My sliced beef was tender, not dry or greasy. The four sauces to "wet" the dry-rubbed, smoked meat are each good, but I... More

Good food and service. Nice selection of sauces available right at your table. Reasonable prices. The decor is nice with the bandana theme. Nice family restaurant. Ribs were good and there are quite a few other choices. Good thing they have paper towels right at the table as you will need them. We went on a Saturday afternoon before dinner... More

I've eaten here twice in the past few months & both experiences were excellent. I had a pulled pork sandwich both times because the first time was so good. Each time I was dining with others & everyone was very satisfied with their orders. The waitresses (both times) were super friendly & checked on us multiple times to make sure... More

Fun country atmosphere, unbelievable prices! Ask about the $5 lunch specials (not on the menu). For five bucks I got beef brisket, two sides and a piece of garlic toast! Incredible! The only reason I didn't give it top rating is our server could have been more attentive as we had to wait longer than usual for service, refills, etc.... More

Our family is a big fan of Bandana's and this one did not disappoint! We love their selection of BarBQ and sauces. The atmosphere is fun, and our service was terrific. Will go back if we have the chance to visit again.

I love that you can order from the lunch menu all day which lets you control how much you want to eat. Great baked potatoes, ribs, and the very best fried corn on the cob. You can't go wrong eating here.
