We eat at Bandits at least once a month. It is always busy but servers are very friendly and fast. My favorite is the lunch special which includes a choice of one sandwich, one salad, and one side. The garlic fries are a special treat.

Had the tri tip barbecue sandwich on a hoagie bun. The meat was extremely tender and juicy. The meat was slow cooked and smoked just perfectly. This was undoubtedly the most tender and flavorful tri tip sandwich I have ever had. The French fries was great - lightly salted.

We went during lunch hour on weekday. We were sat right away, ordered quickly and food arrived timely. The pulled pork plate was very good and the BBQ chicken salad was average. Good atmosphere and good place to go during a lunch hour.

I love eating here. My company's divisional office is in Nearby Oxnard and I stop in and eat at least once when I am out here for Business, I love the Tri-Tip. This is a cut of beef you don't normally have in the Southeast US and theirs is delicious. Depending on the time of day, I have eaten in... More

Great prices on the Happy Hour Menu for both food and drinks. It gets quite crowded though so you'll need to time it just right. Since we live in TO we usually go to the TO Bandits.

We always go to Bandits when we visit our son who attends CIU. He loves their ribs and tri tip sandwich plus if he shows his CIU ID he gets 10% off. I had ribs and shrimp which was absolutely delicious; my husband had prime rib which was made to perfection. (pictures attached). We love this place!

Bandits Grill and Bar in Camarillo, CA has been the "go to" place for the best TRI tip and continues to be the best. Bandits serves barbecue chicken, skewered shrink and a host of delicious items. I have been eating there for over 12 years and whole heartedly recommend their entire menu! An added bonus is the outstanding service by... More

Went down there for a soccer tournament and was skeptical to have a team party there...it was absolutely fantastic. They put us in 1/2 of the restaurant, kids in the middle and adults in booths surrounding them. We had about 45, which they easily accommodated. They had multiple servers, separate bills, food was delivered in a timely fashion...it was a... More
