We had six in our group. Most of us ordered the combo with ribs and pulled pork. It was all good. This was our first trip to Bandana's. If we are in the area again we will stop here again.

We were traveling and stopped by Bandanas BBQ for lunch. Austin was our waiter and provided excellent service. The food was very good. My husband and I both got the ribs. We decided we would make this a definite stop when traveling through the area.
