We had an excellent meal here. Stopping in on a hot July night, without a reservation, even so we were seated at the bar. The service was superb, and when we asked a question about the wine, we were offered a taste of two distinctly...More

Bandera does not want you to bring your children to their restaurant. They do not want you to wear tank tops or flip-flops. The restaurant website has an entire list of expected dress and conduct. I have to be honest, having been to the restaurant...More

This was one time I'd wished I had a hearing problem. We had to yell at each other to carry on a conversation! The food was very good......a lot of places have very good food without the excessive noise.

Once again the meals and service at Bandera didn't disappoint. I went there with an appetite but ended up just getting appetizers and they were as always- AMAZING. The wine list also never disappoints, And truly save room for the Banana Cream pie.
