Excellent food and service. They also have an awesome dessert menu and ice cream bar. Sometimes we go just for ice cream or take out. Nice family friendly restaurant.

It was pouring so hard, on August 21st, so my friend and I stopped here, to eat. It was so crowded! People were complaining. I just waited, patiently, as it was worth the wait. The food was plentiful, and good!

It was so good, we went there twice while in wildwood for an extended weekend. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. We tried the enchiladas, burritos, tacos, pulled pork and they were all excellent and flavorful. The portions are quite generous.

This is the second year we've visited Bandaras. The food is really good, the servers are friendly, and we always enjoy ourselves. The pina colada smoothie is really tasty, and definitely try the guacamole app. We ordered the empanadas as appetizers on a whim and they were so good, I wished I had gotten them for my entree as well....

Okay, I have been going to Bandanas for many years now. I have never been disappointed. The food is excellent every time. They also have GREAT ice cream there, too. The atmosphere is very nice, the staff warm and welcome, and the food is excellent. Make this a stop for your dinner out.

The food is sooo fresh, the chips served with salsa to start was delicious, we all had something different from the menu, and everyone LOVED their food, the tortilla soup was fantastic. Waiter was outstanding, catered to all our needs, not expensive at all and byob! Save room for desert, the death by chocolate ice cream is amazing

Thank phenri01

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!
