“Made us a fan of tri-tips! And was the best value for dollar on our vacation.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2014

Driving from San Diego and having to endure LA traffic on the way up to Morro Bay, we had to stop and find a place to eat and chill out. By chance we landed at Bandits and boy are we glad. Wasn't really expecting much and being from Ireland really haven't been introduced to tri-tip, we are now tri-tip fans! The food is excellent as is the service and there were six of us eating tri-tip in one fashion or another and each one was delicious, But the biggest surprise was the cost, it turned out to be our most reasonably priced dinner on our entire vacation (no, we did not eat any fast food). So it really ticks all the boxes!

“DELICIOUS BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

We have enjoyed Bandits for many years and it continues to be a great restaurant. Always good is their BBQ Chicken Chopped Salad. Their ribs are also great and one of the best menu items is the yams. They have a list for those us that are Gluten Free. The service is always wonderful.

“Best BBQ in the conejo valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Bandits BBQ has been a staple in the Conejo Valley for as long as I can remember, and there's a good reason for that: the food is great! Portions are large, ribs are tender and savory, and all the side dishes are terrific. It's always crowded, but rarely do you have to wait for a table. Skip Wood Ranch, and go to Bandits. It's less expensive and better food.

“Good casual BBQ resteraunt”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

This is a great place for casual BBQ. It is not too large, and typically not over-crowded. They usually have a coupon in the local flyer, as well.....
