Rarely go back to a restaurant for a 2nd time when on vacation. But we did for Bandera. Our first trip there was memorable. Our second trip was a memory maker. First time my son and his girl friend were with us. He has worked at one of the finest restaurants in South Jersey, so he knows fine dining. Observations were that the General Manager is really doing an outstanding job. The wait staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We watched as the staff circulated around the dining room making sure that everything was operating perfectly. There were no servers grouping in the corners and ignoring customers as has happened at other restaurants. But more importantly the food, it's worth the trip. Rotisserie Chicken, ribs, corn bread, what's not to like. But the cheesecake was like having an affair with your dream girl.
Our compliments to Nick the GM. Bandera is a place I'd visit every time I'm in Phoenix area, any other state, since this is just one of many restaurants of the Hillstone Group. If the other restaurants are run as well as Bandera, then reserve me a table.
