I usually don't eat chain BBQ , but I found this place to be quite good. We at here for lunch and I had a pork and beef combo plate. Nice size portions with good side. Great smokey taste and they offered several different sauces. My only complaint is that I like my beef brisket sliced and that was not... More

I have been here 3x. All taken by "work crew", never chosen it on my own. The food id pretty darn good. It just needs to up the interior from a fast food look.

This restaurant seems to have a lot of turnover, and the last few times we've been there, it shows in the decline in service. Lots of new wait staff and lots of mistakes. Other than that, the food is fairly good.

We really enjoyed our meal here. The portions were generous and they offered to increase the size of our meal to the next larger when we seemed to finish what we had quickly. The sauces were very good and the baked beans were delicious. I appreciated that the prices weren't outrageous which can often be the case with BBQ.

First time at Bandana's. The prices were reasonable and the menu selection was good. We ordered a couple beef platters and a sandwich. Each platter came with two sides and the sandwich came with one. Between the three of us we were able to try 5 different sides, all of which we enjoyed very much. The potato salad was creamy... More

On the road heading toward Kansas City, we made a lunchtime stop here on Sunday, May 31. (After we determined our travel plans, I researched BBQ restaurants along the way on TripAdvisor, so we were well-prepared.) The restaurant was clean (including the restroom) and inviting, and the bbq aroma when we walked in was amazing. Our server, Kalyn, was attentive... More

On business I stopped here for lunch and had a really good mixed pork & beef BBQ sandwich. Nice grilled Texas toast with plenty of BBQ and a good selection of sauces. Great value and the serice was much better than I expected. Good for family, travelers or friends. I will return.
