We live in the Valley (Fountain Hills) and eat out often... mostly trying new places. Bandera has a very welcoming, comfortable feel. Our reception and service was very good. One surprise... we were told of a 30 minute wait (seemed quite reasonable). We took a couple seats at the bar only to find you could eat there as well. Two minutes later, we were told our table was ready. Strange.. but nice. We opted to stay at the bar. Our bartender/waitress was very accommodating. 3 female bartenders attended to our needs throughout the meal and were very personable. My wife and I shared their ribeye special which was very good. At 14oz, it easily met our needs for two people. It was grilled nicely. Draft beers are a bit limited. My wife had a bloody mary that was quite nice. All in all.. we had a very nice dining experience. I think you'd be hard pressed not to have a good meal and a good time here.
