“Read this one first...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 18, 2013

I was hesitant after reading a few reviews but out hotel is next door so figured it was worth a try.

YES.....been in the Southwest for over a month always looking for good BBQ and this definitely was! We heard there was a recent manager change and with that lots more patrons.

You can order lunch portions at dinner which are perfect for a light dinner. Beef is wonderful and pork is good too. You have choices of 5 sauces on the table and if you love HOT, ask, the waitress will bring another version.

We would definitely be back....hopefully soon!

“Not good compared to other area Bandanas”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

I got the turkey platter with sweet potatoe fries and green beens came with garlic bread.
Turkey ok but nothing special kind of bland and had some fatty stuff on it like connective tissue.
Sweet potatoe fries also nothing special kind of soggy and not seasoning
Green beans canned
Garlic bread not garlicy at all just oily and at other Bandanas they are browned these were not just not worth the money
My husband got the chicken platter
Chicken dry and completely flavorless
Corn tasted canned
Beans ok but not as good as other bandanas our local bandanas they have meat in them these were just like canned bbq beans
Garlic bread was same as mine of course
Drinks were all ice
Pros
Good waitress and friendly service from a girl named Shannon. Pretty quick service.
Bathroom could use some attention

“Boiled peanuts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I always enjoy Bandana's and to be honest was about to walk out of this restaurant as I had to wait about 5 minutes for someone to greet and seat me. However after that, everything was great. My server Rose was excellent and could appreciate that I ordered and enjoyed the boiled peanuts. She was quick to refill my drink and gave me a drink to go without me asking. I had the chicken and it was very good. I will return to this restaurant.

“Mediocre at best”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Food was fair. Service was okay. Our food arrived quickly, but the waitress seemed to be in a bit of a hurry. Couldn't really understand that because the restaurant was not crowded.
