We had the nicest time celebrating with my Momma on her birthday last weekend. We had twelve adults and a baby surrounding the table. Mom ordered three dinners for four, and it was one of the nicest spreads we've ever had. Such a variety. Our server was excellent. And, with so many leftovers, she boxed them up beautifully for at...

Although we are local to the area, it occurred to me as we were finishing our meal over the past weekend that this Bandana's BBQ location would be great for travelers who want a good sit down meal instead of something from a fast food place. Their specialty is honest wood smoked Southern Style BAR-B-Q with exceptionally quick service and... More

This is a frequent stop when traveling to/from St. Louis or Columbia, and we are never disappointed. This visit was no exception. Fast, friendly service and delicious food -- what we've come to expect and receive every time.

We were traveling through and stopped at Bandana's Bar-B-Q two years ago and like it so much we stopped again. We were not disappointed, and for a couple of travelers the $5.99 meal was very sufficient, and was excellent. The service was very fast! Our waitress was Felicity and she was very helpful with questions we had since my wife... More

Prices have jumped, portions are half. I realize the big Mac is a lot of food but at least give me what I pay for

If you are in the area of South St. Louis County Missouri and are ready for some barbeque, try Bandanas in Arnold. It is consistently good with a varied barbeque meat selection. AND is reasonably priced at $6 if you can be satisfied with a smaller portion of meat, two sides, and slice of great toast. This particular good meal... More

Great lunch specials (Sausage) and the boiled peanuts good. The restaurant is across the street from the Drury Inn Arnold, Mo.

Service is always excellent, never a long wait. Good variety of sauces. I could make a meal just off the garlic bread and Carolina hot BBQ sauce!
