We were looking for an interesting place for dinner after a day of browsing the local galleries. We were intrigued by the comments on the rotisserie chicken. Hoping to avoid a long wait we went a little early. Fortunately, we were seated just before the...More

We had dinner last evening at Bandera's in Old Town Scottsdale, AZ. They are known for their rotisserie chicken, so two of us in our party tried it. We both thought it was moist and delicious. Seasonings are just right and the chicken comes with...More

Bandera is one of our must do restaurants when we come to Scottsdale. We always have the two dips - really excellent pimento cheese and guacamole. My husband had the tri-tip and enchilada and I had the enchilada. The tri- tip was perfectly cooked with...More

Stopped in on a Saturday night around 7:30, was told it would be an hour wait. We walked around Old Town Scottsdale to kill some time. By the time we got seated, it was closer to 1hr 20 minutes. The hostess seemed a bit overwhelmed...More

Good wine, good dessert, crap menu from what it use to be! If you went to Bandera before and think of going back, don't, it's not even close to what you remember. They have changed so much and they don't care what the customer thinks,...More

There is no outdoor seating. Not sure about finding their cocktail menu online. I will say I had a cosmopolitan, and it was one of the best ever (and I am picky!). They offered two options for the age of the Chivas my... More
