I am a local, and when I want BBQ, I go to Bandana's. Their ribs fall off the bone. My wife and I visit this place about once a month or so and the food and service is always great. We also buy our Thanksgiving Day turkey here. Their smoked turkey is the best!

My husband and I were just driving through Boone and saw this restaurant. Delightful young waitress who did a superb job. We ordered the baby back ribs and st. Louis ribs....thick and fall off the bone good. Clean eating area and bathrooms

Great value along with decent portions. The salad bar is a nice touch that all BBQ places should offer. The Hush Puppies were perfect as was the English style cherry cobbler which may confuse the visiting Yankee's. Meats are well smoked to medium. Great friendly staff is eager to please. Clean and well laid out. The only drawback is the... More

I ordered a pork barbeque sandwich without the bun (but with a piece of Texas Toast. Good, tasty NC style barbecue! Good cole slaw, too. I enjoyed a glass of Hoppyum beer -- very bitter and very good, but cost me $6. I could have had a PBR!

Nice full menu, quick service and a choice of BBQ Sauces. It was uncrowded at 5 PM. They have a drive-up window if you are on the run.

We read reviews on bbq restaurants in the area and decided to give Bandana's a try. The restaurant was very clean and our waitress was very friendly. The four of us were very happy with our dinners and if you are not from around this area (like us) try the peach fruit cobbler. It's made differently from anything I've ever... More

Have been here a few times and have always had a great meal. I won't say it's the best bbq i've ever had but it's not the worst either. Everyone has their idea and opinion of what great bbq should be and those opinions should be respected because not everyone likes the same thing. As for me, the bbq i've... More

We picked up dinner one evening and brought it back to the cabin. We didn't eat at the salad bar but it looked good. I had steak and a baked potato and my son had the BBQ. We both enjoyed our meal very much. We'd eat there again. Very reasonable priced.

When we returned the skis at a rental place, we asked for a barbecue restaurant and they suggested to go to Bandana's. This is a restaurant well known in Boone. This place was already full of customers, but we got a table as soon as we got in. I ordered a 10 oz sirloin (I know, it's not BBQ) and... More

Get the BBQ sampler and share it. You'll have plenty to take home. Nice salad bar. Everyone in our party was happy.
