“Great fun food!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

Well it started with the waitress Christine who made us feel comfortable, (we looked like tourist), and we felt like a part of the locals who visit here. Our waitress gave us a lesson in 5-6 sauces they have for you to put on your meat if you choose or as she suggested you may not because of the dry rub procedure (she really knew it all). The food arrived very hot, even the toasted garlic bread was like it just came out of the oven. As we chowed thru it all my, wife quippped "this is fun food" and the next thing you know we looked at each other and said" are we finished already" We were just having fun mixing the sauces with our tender pieces of beef, pork, and chicken. We ended up taking our apple pie ala mode to go, as we were full of fun!!!

“Bandanas in Collinsville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Felt like being in the south. We headed there after visiting the World Heritage Site of Cahokia Mounds. We had the sampler BBQ platter and dessert of hot donut holes rolled in powder sugar. Service was great. Lots of families and locals were arriving as we left--always a good sign.

“Very Good BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Went to Bandana's for the first time last night with my wife and son and it was really good. My son and I had the pulled pork and it was very tender and tasty. The fried okra and also the BBQ beans were also very good. My wife had the chicken tenders and she said they were really good too. The sweet tea was just right. Not too sweet, but just sweet enough. I would highly recommend it.

“Smell that smoke!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

Awesome food for a chain restaurant. I have always had great service and you really can smell that smoke! I almost always get the pulled chicken or turkey. Its always great! Portion sizes are reasonable, and they list the calorie count on the menu. Love that.

“good meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

my son loves this place and this one was just as good as the one we have back home. It is a little pricey but its worth it on vacation to splurge a little bit
