Better than most of the other joints in the area when it comes to service. I always go for more than 20% of tips here because they are so great in here.

I love the food, but can't handle the noise level inside. The BBQ chicken and ribs are delicious and the sides might as well be homemade. The fries are the best!

I love the BBQ sauce at Bandits. It compliments the Tri Tip so well. This is a great place for lunch! Great prices, and great service. Everyone has been super friendly and attentive. We can get in and out quick, which is always a plus when your on your lunch hour!

The Tri-Tip sandwhich lives up to its name..."Unbeatable". I highly suggest this sandwhich as well as everything else on the menu. The BBQ sauce is great too, just as it should be.

I've only had a take-out order from this particular Bandits and the food is about the same as the times I had it in Thousand Oaks. I was glad I ordered over the phone because when I went to pick up my food, the doors were locked. That was over 45 minutes prior to when they were supposed to close.
I almost always order the a la carte ribs combo. It doesn't come with sides, but I get beef, baby-back and St. Louis style ribs at a good price point. The sides are okay, but nothing worth leaving room for if your stomach isn't big enough to eat all those ribs and the sides. The BBQ sauce is a little sweet and smokey and while it's not the best sauce I've every had in Ventura County (it was at Smoke's Cookehouse which is now closed), it's fairly good.
I like Bandits, but why not 4 or 5 stars? It's because the food quality and the service is inconsistent. The cooking is almost always done right, but the ingredients isn't always of the same quality. About 20-30% of the time, I would get beef ribs that are really bare to the bone and since that's my favorite rib type, I have to dock Bandits down a notch. What also takes it down another star is because of the service. Sometimes, it's very obvious that they really don't care to be there to wait on you.
Overall, the food was fine and if I had to choose a place close-by for BBQ, I'll stop by again.

This is a great restaurant that you will want to return to time and time again. It's clean, despite there being peanuts all over the floor. They make the best tri tip sandwiches in Ventura County... my mouth is watering just thinking about it.

They claim to have the best Tri Tip sandwich in the world. Yet they didn't cook it to order. They didn't bring me the condiments I ordered on it. They didn't want to fix it, they just wanted to argue that they were right and I was wrong. Even if they had gotten it right I am sure I can think of Dozens of places I have gotten much better saandwiches. They are high priced for very poor quality food and service.

This historic spot just off the 101 Freeway used to be a stagecoach stop along El Camino Real. 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…
