Solid BBQ Place

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 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.

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

My family and I visited this restaurant around 12:00 pm it was not busy at all. We were greeted by a hostess small blonde female. She said how many? We were just getting in the door and I guess she didn't hear us say 7. So she respects "I SAID HOW MANY" and we repeated 7. She walked us to... 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

This place delivers every time with consistently good food and service. This is a BBQ joint without an edge. It's comforting, roomy, and warm. The pulled pork is great and is served with several choices of sauce. Not too loud to enjoy a leisurely conversation. Down home feel leaves you very happy and content.

The sides were very good (sweet potato fries, fried okra, hush puppies) but we have had much better BBQ many other places.

We tried the sampler for two (which could definitely feed more than 2 people) and the hush puppies. Despite the fact that they were out of baby back ribs at time we went, it was still awesome! I'd heard great things about it but had never been. The sweeter tomato-based sauce is fantastic, the ribs are tender and have a... More

The restaurant was clean and pleasant, and the servers were efficient. The problem was the smoked turkey. There was something strange about the turkey. It tasted like turkey flavored Spam. It didn't have the texture of real turkey, and there was absolutely no smoked flavor at all. I asked the waitress about the turkey. She was sorry that I didn't... More
