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.

This place was awesome. Chicken fell off the bone. 3 different sauces on the table to choose from, all were good. Super friendly staff. Glad we stopped!

We have eaten at Bandana's before but hadn't been back until recently. They have good BBQ here and one special treat is the smoked turkey which you don't find in many restaurants. They have a nice selection of BBQ sauce and tasty sides. Make it a point to get the hushpuppies. They're some of the best around. Even more pleasing... More

Bandan's has pretty good BBQ most of the time, this past time we went it wasn't too bad but the previous time we went I got the BBQ plate and the BBQ was EXTREMELY greasy, I couldn't eat it. Their fried pickles however are delicious! Most of the time the food is good, the sauces are good ones to choose... More

This BBQ place was close to our hotel. The waitress was sweet and the service was fast. My soup was bland and basic. My husband ordered the BBQ pork. It was dry and unimpressive.

Heading back to home after visiting Grandfather Mountain. I ordered the ribs, they were probably the best ribs I have every tried. Buddy of mine shared the sampler platter which had everything especially the dry rub ribs.

I much prefer Woodlands. Bandana's was good but they chop their Pork way too fine for me. They did have wonderful Chicken. It was so juicy and had a great smoke flavor. Their mustard based sauce was very good also.
