Good smokey pulled pork.

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 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.

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

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
