We had a great lunch.Service was great. We had a 2 1/2 year old with us and he remained a happy little guy. My son had sliders and loved them. Daughter in law had pulled pork and said it's better than wood ranch. Overall well prepared!

We've been coming to Bandits for years. Today we introduced some guests from out of town to our favourite local BBQ. For the table we ordered the appetizer sampler, this isn't your typical Frozen snacks. They make all these fresh in House onion rings zucchini fried chicken tenders and pulled pork toast, fantastic ! I highly recommend the prime rib... More

The menu has a great variety of bar b que dishes. The food overall is very good. The no longer serve corn on the cob, unfortunately. The servers are very pleasant, and try very hard to please their customers

My mouth waters just thinking about the consistently delicious food at Bandits. Also, the service is good,dimmer lighting is pleasant, peanut shells on the floor create a "fun" atmosphere. The barbecue chicken wrap and the potato skins are favorites of mine. You won't be disappointed! Dorothy, Camarillo

We eat at Bandits at least once a month. It is always busy but servers are very friendly and fast. My favorite is the lunch special which includes a choice of one sandwich, one salad, and one side. The garlic fries are a special treat.

Had the tri tip barbecue sandwich on a hoagie bun. The meat was extremely tender and juicy. The meat was slow cooked and smoked just perfectly. This was undoubtedly the most tender and flavorful tri tip sandwich I have ever had. The French fries was great - lightly salted.

We went during lunch hour on weekday. We were sat right away, ordered quickly and food arrived timely. The pulled pork plate was very good and the BBQ chicken salad was average. Good atmosphere and good place to go during a lunch hour.

I love eating here. My company's divisional office is in Nearby Oxnard and I stop in and eat at least once when I am out here for Business, I love the Tri-Tip. This is a cut of beef you don't normally have in the Southeast US and theirs is delicious. Depending on the time of day, I have eaten in... More

Great prices on the Happy Hour Menu for both food and drinks. It gets quite crowded though so you'll need to time it just right. Since we live in TO we usually go to the TO Bandits.

We always go to Bandits when we visit our son who attends CIU. He loves their ribs and tri tip sandwich plus if he shows his CIU ID he gets 10% off. I had ribs and shrimp which was absolutely delicious; my husband had prime rib which was made to perfection. (pictures attached). We love this place!
