Description: Celebrating 30 years in 2015, Bandanas is a family run, seasonal restaurant in Wildwood Crest. At Bandanas, we live the motto "Love People, Cook Them Tasty Food". We believe that there's a kindness in cooking that sets something good in motion, and we want to share it with you. Everyday we make all of our marinades, sauces and salsas from scratch, with fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices. We seek out high quality meats, fresh-caught local fish, aged natural cheeses,and the season's best Jersey produce. Emphasis is on a lighter, healthier approach to cooking and our menu items are prepared to order. Although we have no liquor license, you may 'bring your own" or try one of our non-alcoholic beers or margaritas to complement your dining. Make sure to save a little rooom for your sweet tooth, and indulge in one of our amazing original ice cream creations. They're sure to bring a smile to your face and make your tastebuds dance! Relax and Enjoy! Open Weekends through June 11, 2015 and then daily beginning Friday, June 12, serving lunch, dinner and dessert. Be sure to check out our Build Your Own Burrito Bar available in season daily til 3 pm. Adios for now!

I had the Mexican Street Corn and Chicken Tortilla Soup. It's hard to find the Mexican street corn around here. I enjoyed it. Husband had tacos. We were not disappointed. We were seated quickly on the front porch. We ate here last year and will return again the next time we visit Wildwood.

Thanks, Karen, for the 5 star review highlighting some of our tasty treats. Our grilled corn served with chipotle cream and Cotija cheese is one of my personal faves, and I'm glad you loved it too. And our spicy chicken tortilla soup is veggieful and delicious. Tacos? So many days, so many choices. Love having you as a repeat guest, and look forward to your return visit for more al fresco dining.

Stopped into Bandanas for some lunch. We sat outside, nice little nook out front. Ordered chips and salsa. Very good and authentic. We had steak quesadilla and taco asado. The food was good and the price was reasonable. Would definitely recommend for lunch.

Thanks, Charlie, for the 5 star review and high recommendation. We're glad you enjoyed our yummy filet mignon quesadilla and grilled steak tacos on the flower-lined patio. Looking forward to seeing you again next summer for lunch or dinner.

We finally got around to trying this place and we are so happy we did. Great flavor and good portions!! Start you off with their home made chips and salsa which is fantastic. We ordered the tequila fish tacos and the supreme burrito. Both were fresh and full of flavor!!
We will be back again next year for sure!!

Hey Darren, so happy you stopped in! So many restaurants, so little time...now you can put Bandanas at the top of the list for next year! There's so many more yummy treats to discover on our menu, and we can't wait to share them with you. Have a great winter and get ready to make your tastebuds dance at Bandanas next summer. We open the weekend before Memorial Day on a limited schedule, and serve lunch and dinner daily by the middle of June, through the week after Labor Day. Weekends only for 2 more weeks after that. Thanks for sharing your experience and see you in 2018!

Pretty good Mexican fare although the restaurant is a little on the small side. We decided to do take out and just about everything we got was very good, and prepared to our liking. While we're not authorities on Mexican food, we do like to go to Mexican restaurants and this one fares very well against the competition

Thanks, Lou, for your review. Happy to hear that Bandanas stacks up highly when compared to other Mexican restaurants you've been to. Hope to see you again soon (last day of the season September 23), or remember us on your next visit to Wildwood in 2018. We may look small, but our eat-in service and fresh off the grill quality are excellent and we have 3 dining rooms (ok, they're not huge!), and outdoor patio seating. Adios for now!
