Lots of variety of the menu

We we glad to see lots of variety on the menu. Our group had steaks, ribs, chicken and many different sides. Service was good, food came out fast and the salad bar was really good.

Poor taste, cold food and small portions. Our bill was $40 and we were still hungry. Go to woodlands in blowing rock for BBQ.

This is a new restaurant in Boone (took over another barbecue restaurant) and if my experience here is any indication, not only are they going to be around for a long, long time, it's also going to be increasingly difficult to get in without a wait. There's no other way to say it - the barbecue here is amazing! Whether... More

Ordered bbq sandwich and Bbq is not chopped up enough and was full of fat. I could get the same french fries at Mcdonalds.

This place was recommended by a local, and was fantastic. Casual, family-friendly atmosphere, and great BBQ. I think every plate was picked clean. I'm not generally a rib fan, but decided to go with their babyback ribs on a whim. They were fall off the bone and so flavorful. I wish I had ordered the large! Next time we're in... More

Bandanas has been on our list of places to eat on visits to Boone for several years. Once more we found our meals to be very nice and service to be good. We recommend this place without hesitation.

We stopped by for an early dinner. The place was empty and were seated fast. We're not sure if they were under staffed that night, but the service was very slow. The server was apologetic and polite, but we waited over 45 minutes for food. The appetizer sampler was not worth the hype. It seemed like it came out of... More

Hesitant at first but grateful at the end. Delicious BBQ with reasonable prices. We try the BBQ Platter which consistent of turkey, chicken, baby back ribs, St Louis style ribs and something else. Everything was good. You can actually taste the smokeynest in the meat. Sweet potato fries yum yum...and good hush puppies. Good meal and good prices. What else... More
