You can order a whole chicken to go. That's always easy. The artichoke is super yum. And you can NOT go wrong with the chicken sandwich. Make reservations if you want to dine in. It gets packed. And arrive good and early for any hope of sitting at the bar. Always a good choice to eat at bandera!

Can't go to Bandera without having the rotisserie chicken and ribs, and that was just what we had, besides the artichoke and delicious skillet cornbread for starters. Their menu is limited but everything that is on it is great. Never have had a bad meal at Bandera and the service is always great. The night we went our server was Shamous and he was atentive to our needs. Check out Bandera!

Had the artichokes and the house smoked salmon. Both very tasty. We also shared an order of chicken and ribs. And enjoyed a pan of sweet cornbread. The food is good but heavy. Wait staff very proficient.

Great menu. This place is awlays busy, so go early or eat a little something before you go and prepare to wait 30-60 minute for a table during dinner any day of the week.

I have been dining at Bandera and also taking advantage of their convenient take home service for years now and find them consistently delicious. Their portions are generous - so much so that often times my husband and I will split their chicken and rib combo dinner and just order an extra side of their incredible peanut cole slaw. The corn bread, which I highly recommend, comes in a small cast iron skillet and has a buttery crunchy crust with ortega chilies mixed in. Their jumbo grilled artichokes are perfection and come with a garlic based dipping sauce that is fabulous - get them while they have them or you will be sorry as they only carry them when in season. The Macho salad is another favorite with roasted chicken, avocado, chopped dates and goat cheese with fresh greens. Whether you are looking for a delicious juicy burger, delicately grilled fish, ribs or their famous banana cream pie, they do it all to equally well. If possible I would recommend you make reservations as the wait is generally at least 35 - 45 min. without them. You can however eat at the bar (marvelous bartenders - friendly and attentive) or have drinks and appetizers on their front patio.
