Celebrating 30 years in 2015, Bandanas is a family run, seasonal restaurant in Wildwood Crest. At Bandanas, we live the motto "Love People, Cook Them Tasty Food". We believe that there's a kindness in cooking that sets something good in motion, and we want to share it with you. Everyday we make all of our marinades, sauces and salsas from scratch, with fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices. We seek out high quality meats, fresh-caught local fish, aged natural cheeses,and the season's best Jersey produce. Emphasis is on a lighter, healthier approach to cooking and our menu items are prepared to order. Although we have no liquor license, you may 'bring your own" or try one of our non-alcoholic beers or margaritas to complement your dining. Make sure to save a little rooom for your sweet tooth, and indulge in one of our amazing original ice cream creations. They're sure to bring a smile to your face and make your tastebuds dance! Relax and Enjoy! Open Weekends through June 11, 2015 and then daily beginning Friday, June 12, serving lunch, dinner and dessert. Be sure to check out our Build Your Own Burrito Bar available in season daily til 3 pm. Adios for now!

Great Tex-Mex in Wildwood!

Wow, this place was very good. After reading the reviews we wanted to give this place a try. It is a BYOB and certainly worth the wait if you have one. We went during the week and did have a wait at 7:30 which was surprising. Their menu is extensive and also has a kids menu. A must stop if... read more

We continue to enjoy our annual dinner at Bandanas Mexican Grille. We visit Wildwood New Jersey once a year for Beach Blast weekend and always make it a point to get here for dinner. We go early because the wait gets long! It is a BYOB which we enjoy as well. The food is fresh and served nice and hot.... More

My wife got the Tequila Tacos (Tuna). I got the Burrito Asada and my kids both got the Tres Tacos. The service was fine. My daughter's tacos came out without lettuce on them so we had to send them back. The portion size was meager. My wife and I both got about two tablespoons of cold rice and a similar... More
