Adults enjoyed their fish tacos but kids unhappy with their food. Rice and beans were too spicy. Ice cream though was very delicious.

Who would think you could find good Mexican food in a seaside town. Great place for families but get here early or call ahead (they will put your name on the waiting list 30 minutes ahead of time).

Our family went here on a Saturday early evening. We had to wait but not long. The food was wonderful. Great guacamole! The service was quick as well. I would definitely go back.

I think Bandanas is the only Mexican place I've been to at the Wildwoods and it was so good. The guac was super fresh, the chips salty, and the salsa nice and spicy. I got the Three Amigos: a hard shell beef taco, a mini...More

Thanks for the two thumbs up review! We appreciate it! The mint for our fresh brewed iced green tea comes from our own organic garden, as do our jalapenos and much of our salad. Hope to see you again soon!

Description
Celebrating 30 years in 2015, Bandanas is a family run, seasonal restaurant in Wildwood Crest. At Bandanas, we live the motto "Love People, Cook Them Tasty Food". We believe that there's a kindness in cooking that sets something good in motion, and we want to share it with you. Everyday we make all of our marinades, sauces and salsas from scratch, with fresh vegetables, fruits, herbs and spices. We seek out high quality meats, fresh-caught local fish, aged natural cheeses,and the season's best Jersey produce. Emphasis is on a lighter, healthier approach to cooking and our menu items are prepared to order. Although we have no liquor license, you may 'bring your own" or try one of our non-alcoholic beers or margaritas to complement your dining. Make sure to save a little rooom for your sweet tooth, and indulge in one of our amazing original ice cream creations. They're sure to bring a smile to your face and make your tastebuds dance! Relax and Enjoy! Open Weekends through June 11, 2015 and then daily beginning Friday, June 12, serving lunch, dinner and dessert. Be sure to check out our Build Your Own Burrito Bar available in season daily til 3 pm. Adios for now!
