I recently needed something special. My friend called Debbie Bando. She offered to meet me at the store What a wonderful place ! So many treasures to purchase. Then there is the food ! Always the best. More...

Bando’s catering is superb - notice of all details needed for special events. Beautiful, innovative food, prepared deliciously and presented creatively - such a pleasure!

if you're looking for a gift that will impress or a table-full of scrumptious edibles, this is the place. Nobody surpasses Bandos in either category!! Their catering assures you that your guests will rave about your event for days. More...

I have shopped at Bando's for years. The entire staff is very helpful and I always find the perfect gift. Debbie has created beautiful gift baskets for my company's clients and fabulous special occasion parties at the restaurant for my family. I highly recommend the gift shop and the restaurant! More...

I have shopped at this gift shop for 15+ years and have always recommended them to friends looking for Catholic gifts; however, after my experience today, and the way they spoke to me in such a rude tone/manner, I will never shop there nor recommend them to others again. I'm so disappointed as they have a great selection of Catholic merchandise. More...

I've never been to such an inappropriate restaurant and religious store before. My experience matches the previous ones in regards to the manager, Debbie's attitude. It's unreal she's still open. I don't recommend this place. I don't even talk to my dog that way. More...

My experience with this business is 360 degrees what has been posted tonight. Something isn't right. They have always been so kind and generous every time I have asked them for a door prize . Not to mention helping my elderly mother buying a rosary . I just wanted to say something because they have always have made us feel special when we shop. More...

I just saw the post that questioned all this negative comments about my favorite gift shop- and I agree 100% I think if you have a concern or question you should pick up the phone and ask them. I have been a customer for years These posts don't make sense- the customers are older and most don't know how to use Facebook- More...

Out of all the restaurants in Beaumont, this is the last on my list to ever recommend to anyone ever. It's not only the food but mostly the management. I hear from many people how things work here and they're all right - this place should never have gone into business. More...

Manager reprimands employees abusively, loudly, and in front of customers. Terrible experience at this restaurant. Other customers in the gift shop also walked out with me after she threatened an employee today.

Went into Bando's for lunch a few weeks ago - a lady beside us spilled her tea on the ground, before it could be cleaned up, a large, loud women boisterously comes into the cafe and literally yells for everyone to hear "WHAT IS THIS DOING ON THE FLOOR?!" Making the poor elderly woman feel terrible. I won't be coming back here anymore, who would support a business owner of that nature? You can hear her from the front of the restaurant as I was paying.

I cannot say enough great things about Bandos and  Debbie who runs this fantastic operation.  The food is undeniably the freshest and superbly delicious.  It's extremely difficult to please a crowd of 15 people day in and out but all the food was even devoured by the hotel staff at the hotel we stayed   I sincerely would give her ten stars if I could!!Bando's prices can't be beat for what you get.  Fresh, wholesome, organic and in season local vegetables!!  Then I could go on and on forever about the desserts!!!  Pumpkin cheesecake!!  Creme brûlée to die for.  The whole staff was extremely attentive and bent over backwards to accommodate us.  Did I mention she caters the courts there too?If you don't get lucky enough to have Bando's cater your event go and eat at her restaurant!!  It's very cozy.  Perfect for bridal showers or a nice dinner for two!

I have always enjoyed eating at Bandos. My dad, his cousin, and their friends have been regulars here for years, so we are treated like family when we go. I had a perfectly cooked and seasoned tilapia, a lovely mix of veggies (also perfectly cooked; not too hard, not too mushy), and rice pilaf today. The only downside was dessert--a store-bought angel food cake that was just OK, although paired with lovely berries. More...

The entire Patrizi family would like to say thank you for a fabulous dinner celebration honoring our sweet Dad and Beaumont's version of "Dean Martin"! The food was wonderful and the tables and staff just perfect. We recommend this venue for any special occasion. It was a special evening of family food and fun. The Bandos family has been a iconic figure in Beaumont and friend to many. Thank you, we appreciate your care and details making our family gathering feel like home. That's amore' ! More...

The food is decect..but nothing to brag or rave about for sure.  The French chicken and waffles are horrid...and the gourmet chicken enchiladas tasted like left over chicken salad wrapped in a corn tortilla served with a queso sauce that was too rich...not gourmet at all...taco bell would taste better in comparison...

They are only open for lunch and I can see why. They would be packed if they were open for dinner! The service is excellent! Our glasses were never empty. I told them I don't want tomatoes and even though the sauce was already made, they picked out all the tomatoes! Talk about service! Our waitress even remembered I didn't like tomatoes when she brought my salad. The Chicken Ala Wesley is delicious! The chicken was tender and the sauce had so much flavor. Definitely a great choice for lunch! More...

Chicken a la Wesley. One of the best things I've ever ate in beaumont. A 12 dollar dish that was better and fancier than a 25 dollar dish.

This is one of my favorite lunch with the girls places. The quiches (all of them) are yummy. I've even had them made for catered events. Their crab cakes are good. Just writing this makes me want to go. More...

Strawberries. Every Valentine's Day I get my wife, daughter, & grandaughters chocolate covered strawberries from Bando's. My girls love them. Be sure and pre-order in advance!

Quaint. Lovely little place with tasty food. Don't eat lunch here if you're in a hurry, though. The food is prepared when you order it so it takes some time. Definitely go, but go when you have time to spend. A great little gift shop that sells lots of Catholic/Christian and other thoughtful gifts is attached to the restaurant too. More...

I enjoy eating here for 2 reasons. One is because it is good and the other is because it is fast.

If I could take back coming here I would, what a waste of money and time for the company we took here. We seemed to just bother the management after we met her, I guess it's because we didn't partake in blowing money there like she wanted us to.

Terrible place to be with this god - awful management. I can't believe how the employees are treated here. Customers should go to LifeWay or For Heaven's Sake over this store. In a Catholic store I heard profusely inappropriate language by the owner and the employees have to deal with this every day. These people don't deserve a cent from customers. More...

This restaurant and gift shop is so poorly managed - the employees look miserable and the manager is a huge angry lady who can't run a business to save her life

This shop looks like a white trash garage sale. The employee Marie got irritated when I asked her to help me find a St. Michael statue. I don't feel welcome here at all anymore... I could here yelling from some woman who stormed in the front door who the employees said was the owner. I would never walk in there again. More...
