We eat here often after church on Sunday. We were very disappointed in the pulled pork today. It was dry, tough and not the least but smoky. Hopefully it was a one time failure.

Best bbq restaurant I've ever eaten at. Food and service were great. The pulled pork melts in your mouth! Their sides are fresh. The donut holes are made from funnel cake batter. One word "AMAZING!" This past year I have eaten at restaurants from coast to coast and Bandana's is definitely my favorite! I have stopped at every Bandana's we... More

This place was suggested by a local and so I took my family and parents that were in town. We got the meal for 3 that came with Ribs and Pulled Pork plus a platter of Turkey. Plenty of food for 4 adults. The dry rub on the ribs was good but a little too much brown sugar for my... More

I had the smoked chicken and my husbands had smoked turkey. It is always fabulous. Able to sub garlic bread for a third side which we like since we watch our carbohydrates. Servers are always friendly. I just feel the owner needs to update tables and chairs or use paper on table tops at the very least. Some tables, especially... More

We have tried a lot of BBQ places and love the ribs here the best. You also get nice size side items. Everyone is friendly and the service is fast.

The BBQ was decent. I expected the sauces to be to better. I felt there were pretty average and tasted pretty similar to each other, other than the mustard base. The hot BBQ sauce was not hot at all. The lunch meal I ordered had a good portion, and came with buttered Italian bread. Prior to ordering I asked if... More

Nice smoky meat, tender and tasty. Very good barbeque beans and cole slaw. Large, comfortable, clean environment, friendly staff. Ate there twice in a week, could eat there every day. Prices very reasonable. Variety of sauces are interesting but absolutely not necessary for the meat.

Thank Coastercat
