My husband and I came to sweet Bandera and of course, was hungary. Stopped at Sid's. Best idea all day. The BBQ sauce was to die for and the sandwiches were great. Don't forget the sweet potatoes casserole--fabulous! Thanks for a great meal!

A small place. Very homey and not fancy. I got sliced brisket and it was great. If you are looking for creamed corn it was also terrific. Outside picnic tables too.

We found Sid's on tripadvisor and were not disappointed by the delicious offerings. When we got to our ranch accommodations it was noted by the owners that Sid's was the best place for BBQ in Bandera. TripAdvisor got it right!

I had the 2 meat plate. I put the spare ribs at a 5 and the brisket at a 4. Brisket was not bad, just a tad dry for my taste. Great tasting BBQ sauce. I would come back.

Very small shop. Very good BBQ. I fancy myself as more than capable at a grill; however I knew at first taste I couldn't equal those ribs. Top sides were pinto beans and coleslaw. Ground brisket/pulled pork both fine stuff. Sauces on sweet side. Jalapeños...More

Most recent visit had the chicken special. It was wonderful. My favorite side is the pinto beans, but the potato salad was good when I tried it.
