Had sliced brisket sandwich which was delish. Love their sauce. The brisket was melt-in-your-mouth tender and very tasty, even without the sauce. The potato salad was very good too. Next time we're in the area, we'll try something else.

Super delish BBQ! Never have been disappointed when I eat here and usually get the pulled pork sandwich with some fries. The Pinto beans are also yummy!!!

Despite many visits to Tx I wouldn't presume to be a Bbq expert but hell this stuff was good and great value! We will be returning as well as buying our steaks to take to 11th St bar.

I had the chopped beef sandwich and it was huge and my wife had the sliced beef which she thought was very good. We also had the potato salad and it was good. This restaurant uses a vinegar based everything which is fine with me. Everything has a vinegar taste to it. We took ours home but they do have... More

Sid's is a great place for BBQ. The food is very good, the staff is efficient and the price is average. A good deal for good food. Easy parking right on Main Street in the center of town.

I have eaten here about 3 times. The brisket is chewy. The BBQ sauce is a type of copycat from Rudy's. The coleslaw tasted like it was mixed with 90%vinegar and 10% mayo. I didn't like the beans. The potato salad is okay. The chicken is okay. This is the last BBQ place in Bandera that I would purchase a... More
