We stopped for lunch. The portions were generous, and I enjoyed my ribs and hot links. I got green beans as a side and they were okay, but not something I'd get again. The place is a little divey, but aren't rib places supposed to be? Our waitress was attentive, helpful, and friendly. I plan to make a repeat visit... More

Stopped here while traveling down I 29... Not sure what this building was before it became a Bandanas, but it is dark and filthy! The blinds on the windows were all hanging crooked .They have dirty looking concrete floors, and the booth they stuck us in was all sticky, as was the floor. Don't even get me started on the...

We had a very enjoyable barbecue lunch. The meat was so tender we didn't need a knife on our ribs, the sandwiches were equally tender. They had a good selection of sauces to try and all were very good. The friendly service made for a delightful meal.

This place has great BBQ and gives you the option of having a smaller portion for a very reasonable price. I don't eat large potions so the plate was perfect for me! They also have bottles of different flavor BBQ sauce right at the table for you to try.
