I love this place! The food is great, the staff are friendly, the prices are terrific - and they sell Big Red Floats. Now you have to try one too. Go on, you know you want to! ;)

Sorry you did not like anything. By the way we are the #1 BBQ restaurant in Bandera, and #2 of all restaurants. I would advise not to recommend Sids BBQ as they went out of business for lack of good food and patronage. They are...More
