The food is fine.Very good.However..and this has happened to me numerous times-they either will not answer the phone or they answer and leave the phone laying on the counter while you hear them ringing up order after order on the register nearby.Like That is what happened today and many,many other times when I have called.Food is fine,organization is terrible.

Banda's is just what we were looking for - great fried fish and shrimp (and oysters), with no frills. They also offered grilled shrimp and fish, but that is not what we were in the mood for. Order and pick up your food at the counter, several tables for inside dining. Everything was clean. Service was friendly and fast. We... More

After experiencing so awful food choices for seafood here at the coast, I really wanted something good. Saw all the great reviews and couldn't wait to try this place. The front desk at our hotel even recommended it. It didn't look like much but it smelled good. Their menu is painted on the wall and I was pleased at the... More

Good sauce, always fresh seafood. A staple in the community with everyone whose anyone. I was introduced to this food by an 75 year old who has lived here his whole life.

Good fried seafood. Big servings. A neighborhood tradition. Parking is a bit iffy and we were advised that this wasn't a great part of town to be hanging out in at night...

Great place to grab some fried shrimp, fish or oysters in season for take out for lunch. Kind of a rough part of town at night. I grab things for picnics here on the run.

When we lived in Corpus years ago, we would eat Banda's at least once a week. It was quick, inexpensive and good food. It beats LJS or Captain D's. The shrimp is big and butterflied and tastes great. Go to Banda's if you want quick, inexpensive seafood-Beats the other fastfood places!!!
