Great lunch

The southern pulled pork sandwich with fries was very good. Our waitress was personable and the atmosphere is inviting. I would definitely return to this restaurant.

Smoked turkey got us out of the capsaicin allergy--and it was tender and delicious. Two of us split a BBQ for two. The ribs were wonderful: crunchy on the outside and moist and tender on the inside with a lot to eat, Pulled pork and brisket were fine. The chicken was good, too.

Boyfriend had his favorite brisket sandwich with fried corn and a baked potato. Our server Brittany was sweet and attentive keeping our ice tea full.... More

Bandanas has a menu full of option from turkey to pork ribs and Toddler to Busses in the Lot. I absolutely love their full slab of ribs that are currently only priced at @ $16. They have great Pulled Pork, Smoked Chicken and Turkey and Really tasty Smoked Brisket. If they don't have a combo plate you want, they will... More

This Bandana's was just like any other ones. I guess that is one of the reason I went there. Good location but getting out of the parking lot can take some time since there is only one way in and out. Other than that it was what I expected to be.

My boys were quite hungry after visiting the local Jesse James house and museum. We stopped here about 4p on Memorial Day and we were glad we did. The wait staff were friendly and great. The food was very good. We had 2 pulled pork sandwiches, fries, a baked potato, a dinner platter, tea, soda and very yummy freshly made... More

We did pick up as we were staying next door at the Drury Inn. Order was ready very quickly but we couldn't believe the amount of food.......an order of the chicken tenders, Buffalo style with 2 sides and 2 large slices of garlic toast......there were 6 large slices of chicken......not fingers as was expected. They were tasty but only ate... More

Our favorite BBQ place by far. All meats were exceptionally well prepared, smoked and served. Our sides of coleslaw and beans were great as well. We had the two meat lunch and the chicken lunch. Portions were plentiful. Service was outstanding.

I try a lot of BBQ around the country and Bandana's has some of the best tasting, moist, smokey pulled pork I've tasted. Beans are really good. As is the potato salad.

The BBQ here is excellent and service is very good. Bandana's can handle about any size of group that a person would want to take our group had 20+ and they were very accommodating. The orders were taken very quickly and meat were all served at about the same time. When there for lunch by myself I have the 2... More
