“The bar part is much better than the grill. At best average BBQ for a BBQ restaurant.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

Must admit that I have always hoped that Bandits would fulfill the basic requirements necessary to be a good BBQ restaurant - great BBQ and great BBQ sauce. But, they have done neither in my opinion. The food is average at best, although they do offer a nice selection of menu items. The sauce is OK, but I get better sauces out of a bottle at the local supermarket. Prices are not all that reasonable for what you get. All in all, there are better BBQ places in the area.

“Real Santa Maria style barbecue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 3, 2012

The meat is slow cooked over oak and has the real Santa Maria central coast taste. Even the pulled pork sandwich and hamburgers are great. The side salad with blue cheese dressing is great.

I always enjoy the barrel of peanuts while I wait.

“Great rustic BBQ”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

The best tri tip sandwich I have ever had in my 54 years. Nice rustic old fashion atmosphere. The waitress was genuinely friendly. Had a nice small town feel. Meal came so fast.

“Good Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 30, 2012

Good burgers and variety of meaty dishes. Bandit's is very casual, very western. It's in the older downtown part Camarillo, which makes it more fun. Parking is usually no problem. Ask for a bowl for peanuts.
