We stopped here before our college visit. The food was delicious, i do not recommend the potato salad. Service was outstanding and the prices were fair. I would recommend stopping here if you are in the area.

We enjoyed appetizers and margaritas at the bar late in the evening. The service was wonderful and it was a fun environment among Iowa football fans. There were TVs everywhere, so we didn't miss a play. Loved the BBQ and appreciated the gluten free menu!...More

Bandana's is a restaurant that I'd past several times on the way to other places that I had bypassed due to a rule I've used in the past. If the parking lots empty, its probably for a reason. I've stopped by twice due to overwhelming...More

We frequent this restaurant often as it's close to home, has great food at great prices and is consistently good. The meat is smoked so I have the choice of putting sauce on it or having it without; I love that option! There are many...More
