Although Bandits’ Grill & Bar was founded in California in 1989 by head Bandit, Ron Parker, I have a long history in Utah. Utah local and long time friend of Ron, Shane Barber opened Bandits’ on Main St in Park City in 2003. And now Cottonwood Heights, UT in 2015.

Why Utah?

Utah's mountains and rivers were my escape from populous Los Angeles. When I discovered these gems, I fell in love with the land and the people. So, I convinced Ron to teach me everything he knew and I packed my stagecoach, I mean my car and never looked back!  Some say it was that I could both ski and surf, but the truth is that my heart and soul felt at home in Utah … so thank you Utahns!

The First Bandits’

Was more of a true smokehouse, a BBQ joint if you will. And although we’ve held true to the founding menu, we are proud to offer so much “more than just barbecue”. I invite you to explore the menu because there truly is something for everyone, whether it be a tasty burger, a healthy salad or a fresh piece of fish. Don’t worry, we’ve got the little ones covered too! We offer some of our most popular items in portions for their smaller appetites.

Speaking of Food, We Take It Very Seriously!

We strive to source and provide the most incredibly fresh and highest quality ingredients. We purchase from local farmers and ranchers whenever possible and make everything in house. We buy only premium ribs and all of our beef is USDA Choice, our fish is hand packed on ice, never frozen and our fresh poultry is hormone and free range.

So, I Humbly Invite You to Join Our Table and To Truly Feel at Home.

This restaurant is for you, the local, who so graciously welcomed me into your beautiful state.
