This is a "go-to" place when in West Los Angeles. Always good food and mostly good service. Wide variety of food from burgers to salads to steak to seafood. Good mix for big groups. Valet parking in the back. Never disappointed.

This is the perfect place to meet up and party. Delicious, hi-quality food with superb service make this an excellent venue for any occasion. Try the salmon or the ribs and finish off with the Oreo ice cream. OMG!

This was our first visit to Bandera and it was a success. Owned by the same chain as Houstons, the menu and atmosphere have some similarities. Unlike Houstons, Bandera takes reservations, eliminating the typical 45 minute wait for a table at Houstons. Very busy bar...More

I love Bandera and try to eat here every time I'm in town. The grilled artichokes are the best I've had anywhere, period! The atmosphere here is always upbeat whether you're at the bar or eating at a table. They always have a great group...More
