Good barbecue, especially the ribs, in a setting where the funkiness can be overlooked because the flavors are so fine.

THIS RESTAURANT HAS CHANGED LOCATIONS Bandana's Restaurant Review

: Bandana's may look western, with knotty pine and branding irons, but in truth the food is real Southern. The pork is sliced, rather than pulled, but it's so flavorful we can live with that style. The ribs are the highlight: dry-rubbed, tender and moist but not dripping fat. There are four sauces on the table: original (representing a mustardy Southeastern style), spicy Memphis-style, tangy Kansas City-style, and sweet-smoky Midwestern. There's also one presumably so hot it's hidden, so ask for it if you dare. Among the sides, beans win out. They're wonderfully smoky and filled with meaty bits. Consider, too, the baked potato topped with wet Bandana, a beef-pork combo in tangy sauce.
