Very good Mexican fare, my group concentrated on tacos and chimi's. Everything was delicious. Great waitress (her recommendations were spot on). Definitely worth a visit if your hankering a bit of the Mexican fare. Would go back again.

Our family has traveled to the Wildwoods for the last four years. We discovered Bandanas the first year, and we make a point to come back each year. The food is fresh and excellent with delicious selections even for those who do not like Mexican food. Our children love the kids' menu, which even includes fresh fruit. Bandanas is also... More

Visited on a whim last night. Called ahead and only waited 15 min to sit outside at 730p. There is usually a wait for dinner. So I recommend calling. We only had a party of three. The chips and salsa are good as well as the guacamole. I had chicken quesadillas which were portioned well. My husband had a chicken... More

The food at Bandanas was fresh and fast. Although the place had a long waiting line, they got us in as fast as they could and the service was excellent.

Will do takeout at least once more before the... More

We liked the chips and salsa. I had the 3 tacos. Quite good. Service and decor nice also. I wish we had gone back again, our other meals out were not as good.

Thank Lititz

Celebrating 30 years in 2015, Bandanas is a family run, seasonal restaurant in Wildwood Crest. At Bandanas, we live the motto "Love People, Cook Them Tasty Food". We believe that there's a kindness in cooking that sets something good in motion, and we want to share it with you. Everyday we make all of our marinades, sauces and salsas from scratch, with fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices. We seek out high quality meats, fresh-caught local fish, aged natural cheeses,and the season's best Jersey produce. Emphasis is on a lighter, healthier approach to cooking and our menu items are prepared to order. Although we have no liquor license, you may 'bring your own" or try one of our non-alcoholic beers or margaritas to complement your dining. Make sure to save a little rooom for your sweet tooth, and indulge in one of our amazing original ice cream creations. They're sure to bring a smile to your face and make your tastebuds dance! Relax and Enjoy!
Open Weekends through June 11, 2015 and then daily beginning Friday, June 12, serving lunch, dinner and dessert. Be sure to check out our Build Your Own Burrito Bar available in season daily til 3 pm.
Adios for now!
