Can’t judge the food but I have waited over an hr.... and still have not been seated. People who came in after us have been seated. Hopefully some one who care about customer service will help us

To start— the corn bread alone is worth visiting this place. The chicken is so tender and delicious. A worth while stop while visiting old town Scottsdale

After reading favorable reviews, decided to reserve a table so that we could dine after taking a stroll through Old Scottsdale on "Artwalk Thursday".

Pleasantly surprised that the restaurant had a dresscode, which is fairly uncommon nowadays.

Only issue was finding parking due to the nearby SF Giants game, but eventually found a spot within a couple of blocks of our destination.

Walking into Bandera immediately reminded us of the old Houston's on Park Avenue South in NYC.

Same subdued lighting and dark wood booths surrounding a vibrant bar scene.

Soon learned that the Hillstone Restaurant Group which runs the Bandera chain also manages Houston's, thus the many similarities.

Menu choices were sufficient to please even picky eaters. Terrific wine and beer and specialty cocktail list.

For a chain restaurant, service, food and value were uniformly excellent across the board. Menu choices were sufficient to please even picky eaters. Terrific wine and beer and specialty cocktail list.

This is a good place to eat in downtown Scottsdale. Highly recommend reservations. We waited over 45min to get in. It was a Saturday night. The service was good and so was the food. Good roasted chicken. We would go back for sure.

The 4-star rating is for the fun atmosphere and excellent service. The bar is super-busy. (We were there on a Friday night.) The tables/booths are comfortable. Appetizer offerings are weak. They tout they’re known for their rotisserie chicken, which was average at best. French fries were barely average. They were under cooked and lacked crispiness. In fact, one side of fries in our order were delivered cold. The server replaced them with hot fries when this was mentioned. The beef ribs were tender and “fall off the bone” outstanding!
