Had a very good diner at Bandana's during eclipse trip. Even with crazy travel load, the staff were smiling and happy. Ribs were very tasty.

The outside store front does not do justice to the gems on the inside. Service was excellent, wait staff is super friendly, and the food was amazing. My wife and I had the pork and beef platter with a rib. My children had the rib...More
