A Tradition of Fine Food and Guest Service

The tradition began in September of 1996 when our first Bandana's BAR-B-Q opened in Arnold, Missouri. Our mission remains the same, to provide the best Southern Style BAR-B-Q, with exceptionally quick service, in a friendly, family atmosphere. Our real wood pit smokers operate 24 hours a day, which is why you can "SMELL THAT SMOKE" every time you come to Bandana's BAR-B-Q.

Our meats are hand-rubbed before they go into the smoker. This is how we apply our special Bandana's Dry Rub, which contains over a dozen herbs and spices. This combination requires 11 to 14 hours in the smoker to produce our signature Bandana's BAR-B-Q taste. The BAR-B-Q then goes straight from the smoker and is hand-cut to order.

We take just as much care with our side dishes as we do with our meat. Our Potato Salad and Cole Slaw are hand made, fresh each day. Our Bar-B-Q Baked Beans are slow cooked with our special sauce and chunks of smoked meat. We give the same attention to our other sides like spicy Brunswick Stew, Fried Corn on the Cob and Grilled Garlic Bread.

Bandana's is a barbeque restaurant, that is what we are all about, and consistency is the key. You will not find hamburgers, fish or pasta entrees on our menu. What you will find is the best Sourthern Style smoked barbeque pork, beef, chicken, ribs, turkey and sausage you have ever tasted.

Our customers are the most important ingredient to our success and we consider them friends. That is why we treat every guest like they are guests in our home when they stop by for a meal.
