Bandera is Lower Greenville's newest addition, and it's definitely a welcome one. Bandera Bar is far from the typical, noisy, sticky, crowded and boring lower greenville bar (sorry, Sofranos). Bandera has a decidedly country feel, as the owners were going for a "red dirt" style venue. Bandera features live music and a tasty lineup of bar food. We highly reccomend Bandera to anyone who wants a change of pace during a night of Lower Greenville drinking.
