Bandera has some pretty greasy food. Don't like the potatoes....We compare all Rib Joints to places in the past like Tony Roma's. There was lots of meat on the bones of those ribs, the sauce was excellent and meat very tasty. Bandera is most known...More

Bandera has been around forever, and I keep thinking that we should eat there, but we're never been able to do it until last Friday. We brought an older relative there for an early dinner and the place was full at 5:15. The bar was...More
