I am not a fan of KC BBQ, the spare ribs you get everywhere are too much stuff besides meat. The prices of Bandana's are great, amazing pulled pork, multiple sauce options! The Chicago Sweet is my favorite! and the garlic bread is an added bonus!

Bandanas is a no nonsense, affordable, delicious, BBQ place! We eat there often and have never been disappointed! I love their assortment of BBQ sauces. The menu has a good variety but is still simple enough that you're not overwhelmed! We often take visiting family and friends there for dinner too. We always have a friendly, helpful server too. Love... More

One of the best things about is the BBQ. This place had "ok" ribs. Our server brought our drinks, then asked what we wanted to drink. Lol. Ribs were kinda small.

The food was ok/average. I had the pork and beef platter and think it was pricey for what I got. The beans were ok, the coleslaw was not. The table was sticky, the bbg sauce containers were sticky, the seats were sticky, the glasses and silverware were sticky. I used a wet wipe on the table surface - it came... More

Stopped by for my first visit and was very pleased with the experience. Food was very good and the prices were fair. Close to Kaufman Stadium and located in a fairly popular area for visitors.

Stopped in Independence, Mo for lunch and glad we saw the BBQ place. I always judge a bbq restaurant on how good the different cuts taste without sauce. The meat should improve the sauce not the other way around. This place did not disappoint. Add in a friendly staff and reasonable prices and we have a winner. If ever driving... More

My wife is a fan of Bandana's BBQ and this one was above average in its food. Wait staff were very busy so service was slow. Seemed to be filled with local who knew each other and the wait staff, so conversations slowed the service.
