  • Bandera has the best service! Ask for Mayara or Trisha. The poke and prime rib are excellent.
  • Cornbread is a must!
  • The macho salad is delicious!!!!!!
  • Mac and cheese yummmy!
  • No corkage fees here. Yes, that is a liquor store across the street.
  • Crispy Chicken+ Rum and Coke
  • Everything is amazing. Macho and Caesar salads are fab. Have the skillet cornbread too!
  • Must have the cornbread! The whole thing is good but the crunchy part on top is the best! Surprise - there's jalapenos inside!
  • The cornbread, the lamb sandwich and the salmon appetizer. Must try.
  • Amy is the best bartender. Such a great personality. Excellent service. #spec
  • Feels and looks exactly like Houston's
  • The fish sandwich is excellent! Ask for the sauce on the side and substitute the slaw for escabeche. Healthy and tastes great!
  • The ribs are amazing!
  • Delicious prime rib!!!
  • I love the Ribeye....also try the ribeye at Gulfstream
  • The California grilled artichoke is fantastic
  • I loved the crispy chicken sandwich + must start with the dip duo!
  • I get back always for the crispy chicken sandwich one of the best I ever try
  • You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. Very good basic American food, active, ambient lighting, cozy booths, generous drinks and food, and friendly service.
  • Cornbread skillet is a must. The chicken Cobb salad is delish but the white meat chicken was less than prime rotisserie quality (more fast food chicken). Good service. Overall, ok eats for the area.
