My family and I are staying in Boone for a long weekend. I try not to eat at chains when I can help it. We left Tweetsie Railroad and every restaurant we passed was packed. We drove by Bandanas and they were no different. Went to our cabin to freshen up. Got to Bandanas at 7:30. Still crowded and we... More

While staying in Boone to attend an open house at Appalachian State University we ate here for dinner. We were seated promptly and drinks arrived quickly. Our server was very friendly and attentive. We ordered the fried pickles for an appetizer and I got the chicken tenders, my daughter got the pulled pork and my wife got a burger. I... More

Loved, loved , loved the BBQ. My husband swears this is the best BBQ he has ever eaten. (And we've tried a lot of places). Every thing we ordered was fabulous. The hush puppies and baked beans sides were exceptional. My husband is still taking about the ribs. Too bad it's a 7 hour trip--but even so we will be... More

One of my favorite places to eat in Boone. Try to go there at least once each visit. The sampler platter is big enough for two no matter how hungry you are. Really enjoy the different BBQ sauces they offer. Great family environment and relatively inexpensive.

We tried the Brunswick stew and was surprising pleased! And, course, we got BBQ sandwiches. The meat was perfect, and they let you choose which type of sauce you want with it. and my wife raved about their baked beans. Great service, as well.

My husband had been wanting BBQ and ribs so on a recent trip to the Boone area we stopped in for dinner. Since we had trouble deciding what to get we went with the sampler platter. By far, the best thing were the St Louis style ribs. The baby back ribs were pretty good but the others were juicy, tender,... More

This was the worst BBQ I have ever had! Not worth the money we spent! Very disappointing...On top of it all the service was terrible.

Had take out, and they were fast and the food was as ordered. The coleslaw is on the sweet side, the ribs very nicely rubbed and cooked, and the beans smokey. Enjoyed the mild sauce the most.
