Ribs are Not Too Bad

We’ve been here a few times. The service has been consistently attentive and prices are fair for the value received. The meaty ribs were very good and you can “smell the smoke” but they’re not the best that I’ve tasted. I like full-bodied, robust, smokey “flavor” that’s really cooked into the meat, along with a little more kick in the spice. I prefer ribs smoked at a lower temp and cooked more well done. They do have a great selection of sauces that you can put on your ribs, but I truly believe that really GOOD ribs should stand on their own.

For dessert, Bandana’s has a WONDERFUL Root Beer Float that you’ve got to try while you’re there!
