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

Excellent food, lots of choices and great service. It's dry rub and you add your own sauce, love it!!! Highly recommend!

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

Staff was prompt and friendly. Ate there on a Saturday evening with no wait. We each had a combo plate with pork and beef. Both are pulled and dry as mentioned in a previous review. Each table had 5 different sauces to try. KC Style, Chicago Sweet, Sweet & Smoky, Spicy and Original. I learned after dinner that the "hot"... More
