After a move to Indiana, we haven't had Bandanas in over 3 years. Just as awesome as it has always been. Wait staff very personable. Enjoyed our meal!

This place was such a bummer. funfortunately it wasn't really what we were expecting for the area, I know that this part of the country is supposed to be one of the best places to eat BBQ; however I think I have had better experiences in other places like Texas to have this type of food. The staff was very... More

I really enjoyed the rib dinner. Ribs were hot tasty and juicy. Sides were great and the service was good.

Ten or so of us ladies went to lunch after church. The service was good. The service was quick considering it was such a large group. I had the pulled pork. It was good and tasty. I like having several bottles of sauce to choose from for my meal.

Found this BBQ place awesome with specials for under $6. Meats are served without sauce but at table you add your own favorite sauce from 6 different kinds. Friendly waiters.

We eat here often after church on Sunday. We were very disappointed in the pulled pork today. It was dry, tough and not the least but smoky. Hopefully it was a one time failure.

Best bbq restaurant I've ever eaten at. Food and service were great. The pulled pork melts in your mouth! Their sides are fresh. The donut holes are made from funnel cake batter. One word "AMAZING!" This past year I have eaten at restaurants from coast to coast and Bandana's is definitely my favorite! I have stopped at every Bandana's we... More

This place was suggested by a local and so I took my family and parents that were in town. We got the meal for 3 that came with Ribs and Pulled Pork plus a platter of Turkey. Plenty of food for 4 adults. The dry rub on the ribs was good but a little too much brown sugar for my... More

I had the smoked chicken and my husbands had smoked turkey. It is always fabulous. Able to sub garlic bread for a third side which we like since we watch our carbohydrates. Servers are always friendly. I just feel the owner needs to update tables and chairs or use paper on table tops at the very least. Some tables, especially... More
