We eat at Bandana's a couple times a month. Usually for lunch, so we get the lunch plates. My favorite is the turkey, but burnt end beef is a close second. I usually pick beans and fries for my sides. The bread is good. The variety of sauces allows for everyone to find one to their taste.

Okay, so we are from Kansas City! BBQ capital of the area, so I did not have I hopes but boy was I surprised! Great food, great service and great prices! I felt welcome and I would go back again!

I really like the selection of food on the menu. The choice of sauces on the table is a plus. The service was great and food came fast. Everyone give them a try if your in the mood for BBQ

I walked over from the Drury Inn and sat down for dinner. Had a wonderful young lady wait on me. The rib and turkey combo was my choice. I've had the ribs before, and they are decent. A little on the dry side, but tasty. The 5 BBQ sauces on the table give you a fine selection for your taste.... More

Bandana's BBQ has five Budget Busters entrees under $6 that are great for both your wallet and your palate. You get a choice of meat, two sides, and a piece of toasted garlic bread. You may choose between pork, beef, chicken, turkey, or sausage. There are nine side dishes to choose from, and you may upgrade to a premium side... More

Ordered to go so we could go back to the hotel and watch the Huskers fb on tv. The food was awesome; my son had a slap of ribs, let's just say he didn't talk during eating since they were so good, and I had a beef sandwhich which was very filling. The sides were great too. What I really... More

I travel a lot for business. Upon seeing Bandana's BBQ, I decided to stop-in for something a little different while on the road. It met that requirement. I grew up in the Kansas City area and would not classify it as among the best BBQ I've tasted--but, that said, it was a plenty tasty meal. I got pork and thought... More

Hosted a business meal and was very impressed with the meal. We chose BBQ beef and turkey, potato salad, baked beans and dessert. Everyone in attendance commented on the meal and how good it was. Very nice meeting room and the staff kept drinks and food coming as long as we wanted it.

... in a state with thousands of them. Only complaint is no wines available (not really beer drinkers, especially domestic beers). Service was a little on the slow side when we first were seated, but food was tasty, arrived hot.

I was concerned about eating here because Trip Advisor hadn't rated it at the top and some of the reviews were negative. But at the suggestion of several people we tried it and were glad we did. The BBQ had very good flavor and we appreciated the wide variety of sauces. We tried the ribs and the brisket and both... More
