We eat lunch here often and the BBQ is always good and the service is even better. I left a credit card there once, and when I called back to ask about it, they told me they had it. I appreciate the honesty of the employees and will always be a customer because of it.

Bandana's is not your typical barbecue joint. I enjoy their lunch plates and they are a very good value. We happened to attend a special birthday dinner this weekend here and they were very accomodating. They were very gracious with our large party, the food orders were taken promptly and the food all came out at the same time to... More

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.

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
