The grilled artichoke is a “must” - assuming you like artichokes. I had the Carolina Ribs, my wife the Tri Tip/ Enchilada combo. The Ribs were “fall off the bone” meaning slightly over cooked. They managed to keep them somewhat moist. The Cole Slaw (mustard...More

I have eaten at the Scottsdale Bandera a few times. Living in Wisconsin we're not in town very often but Bandera is always in our plans. Four of us had a great dinner, nicely served, and not overly priced (but not cheap either!). I'm not...More

Caesar salad could have been so much better if they didn’t include the romaine ribs. Wine selection is very good. Pricy!! We both ordered chicken. Needed seasoning and the birds were small. Risotto was superb as was the green rice. Location is premium in Old...More

I had been told the beef ribs were superb, but I have had better, even when I put mine on our BBQ. They were small but too crispy on the edges, and although meaty, there was no fat which took away the natural flavor. The...More

The atmosphere as great. The service was OK. Our server never told us about the specials. For the price I thought was over priced. Had much better fillet mignon elsewhere. Doubt would return.

We went for my husband's birthday, which is on Valentine's Day and not the best night to go out for anything but Valentine's Day. We thought we would be clever and go out on the 13th. It was still busy. The restaurant has a comfortable...More

We were at Bandera in early January. It seemed to be one of the busiest restaurants in Scottsdale's old town but we managed to get a great table without booking. We were served by Brittney who was great - friendly, attentive - but not too...More

What a great restaurant. Superb food. Love the enchiladas. Chicken is fantastic. But the best kept secret is the smoked salmon dip. I don’t eat salmon. But this is exceptional. Staff seamed overworked but always smiling.

First time eating there & it came highly recommended by the friends we were meeting up with. It didn’t disappoint! My aunt, who eats a keto diet, was easily accommodated. I had the Macho salad & a side of their ‘best-mashed-potatoes-in-the-world’ (per my friend) &...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
