Description: 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!

This is the kind of place you hear about and are sorry you missed. Is it the best Mexican food I have ever had? No, but, it is darn good, far better than most. I will absolutely return.This place gets really busy, so call ahead.
The servers are prompt, attentive and always in a good mood.
I had the Filet Mignon Charitas and they were perfectly cooked to my request of medium rare. Very tasty with tasty rice and the guacamole I ordered on the side. I finished every bit of the meal and was full, but, although we were full we could not pass on dessert.
My wife had the shrimp charitas with shrimp and it was equally good.
They are noted for their delicious "real" ice cream, with their many, many flavors. In a cone or a cup, with or without toppings, it's fantastic.

Long waits for very average food. Food and prices are not worth going for. Will not go back. Many other choices in area.
