My husband got ribs. I got a three meat platter. It is hit or miss with the turkey. Sometimes it is juicy other times it is dry. I got sausage and pork as well and they were great. Got ours as a take out order.

Good BBQ and not to expensive. Never a wait line when i go which is either at lunch or early dinner. They have budget buster menus that have 3 oz of meat and 2 sides which is plenty

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.

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.
