Bandits serves up delicious food. Grilled tri-tip, chicken, pulled pork, wonderful salads, desserts. Extensive menu. Never had a meal here that was anything but great. Servers are efficient and helpful. Management stellar. You won't be disappointed.

Went down there for a soccer tournament and was skeptical to have a team party there...it was absolutely fantastic. They put us in 1/2 of the restaurant, kids in the middle and adults in booths surrounding them. We had about 45, which they easily accommodated. They had multiple servers, separate bills, food was delivered in a timely fashion...it was a... More

I had a tri tip sandwich on garlic bread and beans , and my wife had ribs and sweet potato fries. The tri tip was very tender and juicy with Jack cheese. The barbecue sauce was just right. Not overly done on the sandwich. The beans were excellent. Wished for a larger quantity though. My wife's ribs were to die... More

They have a nice selection of appetizers and meals. Their tri tip salad is really good and so are the chicken wings.

I went with my family. I heard some complaining while we where seated. Soon I too was complaining. The chicken we ordered was served under cooked. They tool it back and tossed it in a microwave. I refused to accept it. The management offered to lower the price on the meal. I refused to pay and we left. I won't... More

I've been a loyal customer for years, coming here at least twice a week for their Chicken Waldorf salad. Today, after a week out of town on vacation, I came in so excited to have my usual to learn that the menu has changed and it is no longer available. No explations, just not available. They have good tritip and... More

I was going to have BBQ here but the waitress recommended the tri-tip steak. Great recommendation. It was cooked just right and had a wonderful flavor and was tender. I would come back here just for it. I was seated in the restaurant and not the bar area and so the attentiveness of the waitress seemed lacking. She wasn't that... More

The food is OK. No raves from me because I'm picky when it comes to BBQ. I don't see a smoke ring on the meat when you cut into it so they must do slather BBQ. If rustic decor is your thing then you're set. Ribs are OK chicken is OK. Steaks a tad over cooked for what I order... More
