Bandera is a tight knit group of restaurants united under a banner of casual sophistication and quality service, owned by the reputable Hillstone Restaurant Group. There are locations in Scottsdale, AZ; Los Angeles, CA; Corona Del Mar, CA; Sacramento, CA; and Chicago, IL.
People rave about their veggie burgers, even if that person is a die-hard carnivore. When I came here, I had their Bandera Chicken, which was great.
When you come here and are placed on the waiting list, don't expect to be given a pager, like at so many other restaurants. In fact, they take down a short description of you and the hostess will come and find you. This is supposed to make your evening more "personal."
All of the restaurants of this chain stay open from 11:30 AM to 10:00 PM on Monday-Thursday, 11:30 AM to 11:00 PM on Friday and Saturday and from 12:00 PM to 10:00 PM on Sunday. [more]
