This restaurnt came highly recommended so we thought we'd try it. The reviews were hi. Not what we found. Parking was next to impossible. The staff was very nice, then it went downhill. We found it uncomfortably dark (I guess romantic if you are young),...More

Hillstones' restaurants never fail to impress, and Bandera is no exception. Everything we ordered was delicious, and the service was superb. Ridiculously good banana cream pie!

Fantastic dinner at the bar! As usual, top notch service, even though SUPER busy!!!!! Filet was amazing, as was kale salad. Devastated, this neighborhood gem will not be in my backyard soon. The new UV management company should not only give aggressive lease terms, they...More

Up until this evening, I’ve only heard about Bandera’s. Hard to believe we just discovered this wonderful fine dining place! From the roasted artichoke appetizer to my Hawaiian Rib Eye down to the delightful coffee...it was pure deliciousness! Can’t wait for our next visit!

My husband and I came here with some friends. The restaurant is so loud it's difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was different but pretty middle of the road taste wise. Parking is tough as well.

Loud, local eatery with good food, nicely presented, excellent service. It is VERY dark inside, so bring reading glasses to read the menu. It is pricy, but the food is good.

I've reviewed them before but went the other night and it needed another. Some restaurants do some things just better than almost anyone. For Bandera it's grilled and rotisserie meats. Steaks, ribs, chicken, pork, through in some salmon, all are tender, tasty and juicy. But...More

My first time coming here was 17 years ago and loved it. Was able to visit with my daughter last night and the chicken is still phenomenal. Service was great and so was the atmosphere. Definitely recommend if you are in the Sacramento area.
