Recently my family and I stayed at the Quality Inn in Independence. We decided to check this place out since it was in the parking lot. I'm glad we did. We got a family special with bbq, beans, corn, and delicious garlic bread - all for under $30. The food was fixed fast and getting the take out was a... More

How many ways can we say awesome food and service. We are a family that was visiting Independence and love BBQ food. So when we tried Bandana's BBQ Restaurant, we left busting at the seams and more than pleasantly surprised at how good the food and service was superb. Once we were served I don't think there wasn't a positive... More

They have roaches! Used to work there. Don't suggest anyone eating here. This is only at the Independence, MO location that I am aware of, but I feel it is disgusting and that people should know about the pest problem. You don't want your kids or family to eat here, I promise. Not to mention the way you are treated... More

Bandanas has been my favorite barbecue for years now. I fear they are changing to cheaper ingredients because last night really sucked.

I really love the ribs at Bandana's. They always taste fresh and yummy. I also love the fact that they offer 3 different sauces so I can play around and get the taste that I crave. The service is consistently good even when they are packed. The prices are fair. They also offer a nice assortment of side dishes. I... More

Bandana's is right off I-70 and Noland Road so it is a fairly busy locale. The first thing you notice when you get near it is the smell... the wood smoked barbeque smell. Walk in and it is pungently (and pleasantly) very barbeque. A slab of ribs is about $20 and boy are they tender! There are almost too many... More

My friends said I had to check out the barbeque in KC. I tried Zarda's in Blue Springs, MO and was not impressed at all, so I tried Bandana's 'cause it was close to my hotel. WOW is what I can say about the meat. I had the ribs which were awesome with no sauce on it. I spoke to... More

they aren't kansas city bbq like Gates,Oklahoma Joe's, or aurthur Bryants but it was a really good memphis bbq. We did eat at Gates later and I prefered Gates but it was close. I'm told Oklahoma Joe's is the best bbq in Kansas city
