We always go to Bandits when we visit our son who attends CIU. He loves their ribs and tri tip sandwich plus if he shows his CIU ID he gets 10% off. I had ribs and shrimp which was absolutely delicious; my husband had prime rib which was made to perfection. (pictures attached). We love this place!

Bandits Grill and Bar in Camarillo, CA has been the "go to" place for the best TRI tip and continues to be the best. Bandits serves barbecue chicken, skewered shrink and a host of delicious items. I have been eating there for over 12 years and whole heartedly recommend their entire menu! An added bonus is the outstanding service by... More

Bandits serves up delicious food. Grilled tri-tip, chicken, pulled pork, wonderful salads, desserts. Extensive menu. Never had a meal here that was anything but great. Servers are efficient and helpful. Management stellar. You won't be disappointed.

Went down there for a soccer tournament and was skeptical to have a team party there...it was absolutely fantastic. They put us in 1/2 of the restaurant, kids in the middle and adults in booths surrounding them. We had about 45, which they easily accommodated. They had multiple servers, separate bills, food was delivered in a timely fashion...it was a... More

I had a tri tip sandwich on garlic bread and beans , and my wife had ribs and sweet potato fries. The tri tip was very tender and juicy with Jack cheese. The barbecue sauce was just right. Not overly done on the sandwich. The beans were excellent. Wished for a larger quantity though. My wife's ribs were to die... More

They have a nice selection of appetizers and meals. Their tri tip salad is really good and so are the chicken wings.

I went with my family. I heard some complaining while we where seated. Soon I too was complaining. The chicken we ordered was served under cooked. They tool it back and tossed it in a microwave. I refused to accept it. The management offered to lower the price on the meal. I refused to pay and we left. I won't... More

I've been a loyal customer for years, coming here at least twice a week for their Chicken Waldorf salad. Today, after a week out of town on vacation, I came in so excited to have my usual to learn that the menu has changed and it is no longer available. No explations, just not available. They have good tritip and... More
