THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Bandera Restaurant Review

: Large portions of simple American cooking---spit-roast chicken, barbecued beef ribs, apple-cured pork tenderloin and aged prime rib---is what attracts folks to this unpretentious restaurant. Don’t miss the corn bread, served fresh from the oven in an iron skillet. And make sure to order the mashed potatoes and scallion-accented coleslaw. Exposed brick walls, a low, beamed ceiling and comfy red leather booths give the interior a cozy feel. The lighting is deliberately intimate; a single shaded bulb, hanging from the ceiling, shines on the center of each table. The food is illuminated, while the diners remain in a soft, semi-darkness. This could be romantic if the restaurant were not so noisy; the joviality from the centrally located, U-shaped bar can be heard throughout. The martinis are excellent and there is a long list of beers on tap. The wait staff is energetic and friendly but sometimes the kitchen can be slow. Come early or be prepared to wait at the bar because this place doesn’t take reservations and fills up fast.
