    Overrated, but the steak was much better than the chicken

    The French dip is an amazing entree, it is a steak sandwich that is to die for and the sauce is a must to dip your sandwich in! Also if you want a good appetizer the artichoke dip is very creamy!

    Very intimate and great for a date night. Signature margarita is worth trying. Get something to share in the bar and enjoy live jazz!

    Get the cornbread though it's a little bit too big for a table of two.

    The steaks don't have weights on the menu, but were generous. They come with a salty crust, which detracted from the flavour for me - but were beautifully cooked. I'll ask to hold the salt next time.

    Jazz and Macho Salad... The perfect world of chicken, cornbread and great music in a surprisingly affordable yet perfectly old school mix.

    Macho salad is the best salad in the entire world. Hands down. I continually have cravings for this salad and the expensive price won't even keep me away.

    Great atmosphere: live jazz at night and nicely designed interior. A very convenient location that is good for a nice lunch or dinner. Great food too.

    Just as great a lunch spot, as it is a dinner spot. Beef ribs (are the best in town) & the artichoke appetizer (to share), was a delightful surprise. Yum! I love you Bandera!

    Have been here three times. Live jazz at night. Love the corn break skillet! Macho salad is so delicious, and I loved the rotisserie chicken. The special dessert last night was great too :)

    The food is decent. However, it's really irritating when you want to order a salad and you ask to customize it and the kitchen refuses to do it...Especially when the waiter claims it's not premade.
