We met family here for dinner. It was okay but we definitely had mixed feelings about our food. The ribs got good reviews as did the garlic bread. The Brunswick stew and baked potato were just okay. And they serve Pepsi instead of Coke, which is just yuck.

They have to be one of the friendlest wait staffs in all of Jefferson city, MO. They never rush you, but you do not wait very long either. Food is always hot, and it is very good.

In today's world it's rare to find good ol fashioned experience of friendly service and an owner that is present and visits with customers. We love a restaurant where we can experience delicious food and excellent hospitality!! Austin does a great job of running our local Bandannas and we feel at home there!! Their ribs& chicken nachos are our favorite!!

I went to bandannas with my 16-year-old son and his 14-year-old friend on our way to Fort Leonard Wood Missouri. The food was outstanding. I ordered a pork and beef combo plate, my son ordered a pulled pork sandwich, and his friend, Who has gluten allergies, ordered the catfish. The staff was very helpful on determining what was gluten-free and... More

I was in town for business and wanted BBQ. Bandana's was nearby and is always excellent. This time was no different and even my picky kids ate well. Always know what you're getting here food and service wise.

First meal I've ever had in Missouri, and my trip started out great with this restaurant. We ordered a massive platter of various kinds of barbeque (all great) and a lot of sides which all were stunning. I will definitely return one day :)

Had a Friday lunch with a relative here. The restaurant was very busy and almost to the point of people waiting to be seated. We had the pork and sausage platters/meals. Both were very good. The abundance of different hot sauces and BBQ sauces made it easy to customize the taste. The service was also excellent. It was one of... More

My wife and I split the $13.99 two meat dinner. We had sliced beef, ribs, baked beans, and slaw. Everything was good but not excellent. Being used to Kansas City BBQ we might be BBQ biased. The server did a good job tending our every need and the place was nice. Overall, I thought better than average but not quite... More
