    The cornbread on a skillet was super yummy!

    You'll dream about the cornbread here.

    Chimay on tap. Yumm

    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.

    Had the fresh fish of the day and it was absolutely delicious. The cornbread is out of this world.

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

    The kale salad. The fried chicken sandwich. That's all you need to know.

  • Misty M.

    Lamb sandwich and cesear salad are the best. Dress accordingly. Make a reservation when possible!

    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.

    Meredith Friedberg · September 30, 2014

    Consistently excellent service and perfectly prepared American food. I love the ruby red trout.

    Diet coke comes in a tiny bottle, not from the tap.

    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!

    Amazing lamb sandwich with kale salad. High recommended with the musk mule cocktail.

  • Pocket S.

    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 :)

    Pocket Sun · April 11, 2014
  • Josh W.

    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.

    The flag in the lobby is a 46 star flag.

    Just like being home in Corona del Mar, CA. My favorite restaurant. Gotta have to rotisserie chicken, mash potatoes and sauté spinach. B.

    Owned by Hillstone. Average at best... But, the location is good. Its on Michigan Ave near a lot of familiar shops... Prepare to pay more for location.
