First time here, the atmosphere is fun. Food was OK- our waitress was amazing! Not real expensive, which is a bonus!

Bandanas is a no nonsense, affordable, delicious, BBQ place! We eat there often and have never been disappointed! I love their assortment of BBQ sauces. The menu has a good variety but is still simple enough that you're not overwhelmed! We often take visiting family...More
