Stopped at Bandana’s BBQ for dinner while visiting Carbondale for business. Visit was in the later evening, so place was occupied but not very busy at that time. Was seated almost immediately, and server was quick to stop at table to take drink order. Server was also very friendly and helpful with explaining some of the menu options, which was appreciated with this being my first visit.

Food arrived rather quickly, and everything was fresh and hot. I got the BBQ beef and pork dinner, and both meats were very tender and flavorful. I had the green beans and potato for the two sides, which were also very good. Place prides themselves on using a dry rub so you enjoy the taste of the cooked meat versus a sauce, and they do a good job at that. There are sauces available on the table, which is nice to add some flavors, while allowing you to control the amount.

Prices are reasonable for what the quality of what you got. Portions are decent sized as well, although I’ll admit that I would have liked a bit more of the beek/pork. There is a combo option that would have been a bigger amount (versus the smaller dinner and even smaller lunch options), so I might have to remember that for the next visit. That being said, it speaks well to a place that you want more of what they serve.

Passing through town and hoping for a good BBQ place, but this wasn't it. Ribs were very tough with little meat. Pulled pork was good though.

These ribs are much better than 17th Street Bar and Grill. Well seasoned with a great rub and large and juicy. Love the Carolina spicy sauce. Chicken has crisp skin and a great smoky flavor. Really good BBQ beans and garlic bread. Reasonable prices. Good for take out.

When in Carbondale, eat at Bandana's. It wasn't busy, because it was before the dinner rush. My server was pleasant & helpful with the menu. Order taken, cold drink was quick. Didn't have a long time to wait on food. I had the Southern style BBQ sandwich with potato salad & fries. BBQ was hot & had excellent flavor. There was several different flavors of BBQ sauce. I tried several and all were good. The food was fast, hot & tasty. Overall the visit was excellent. Value excellent. Food excellent!
