Bandits' Grill & Bar Restaurant Review

: This slick-looking Thousand Oaks spot has upscale décor and a shiny open kitchen. But that doesn’t mean they don’t know down-home barbecue here. The brisket, pulled pork, chicken, tri-tip and ribs are slow-cooked and then finished over an oak wood fire to give them a pink color inside and a nice char outside. On the tri-tip and chicken, you can choose your favorite seasoning. The pulled pork and brisket come swathed in a bit of sauce already. Any of these meats are available as a full dinner plate or can be sandwiched between two pieces of garlic toast (or on a steak roll). If all that food overwhelms you, opt for one of the many salads like the wagon wheel wedge with blue cheese and bacon, the chicken Caesar, the Cobb, or the salmon salad with Mandarin oranges and wonton noodles. The mini burgers are fun and easy to eat. For those who have any room left, desserts are limited and decidedly simple. There’s old-fashioned cheesecake, chocolate cake and three flavors of ice cream---you guessed it: vanilla, chocolate and strawberry. Also located at 1980 Ventura Blvd., Camarillo, 805-445-4742.
