The upstairs bar is fun I will admit but I only come to Banana Cafe for one reason and that definitely is not the food. The redeeming reason to frequent this establishment in spring and summer? Delicious margaritas and a great patio.

Pros: Patio + Pitchers of margs

Cons: food

Picture this: Start with a dollar store pizza flat bread, topped with Hunt's ketchup, salty pork sloppy joe's, a few random kernels of corn, (surprisingly tasty) plaintains, low-fat mozzerella, and top it off with a full handful of cilantro. The result: repulsion and GI track "issues" for remainder of day. Not impressed. Although, the daiquiris were refreshing, we should have downed a few more to ease the suffering. Stay clear!

The atmosphere here is friendly and fun, and the food tastes good...until about four hours after you eat it. Service, by the way, is slow and unfriendly. Drinks-- especially the mojitos-- are excellent. Chips and dip are good. The big problem: last time I went I got TERRIBLE FOOD POISONING and missed my trip to France. I was not pleased. I ordered a shrimp dish, which is probably what caused the poisoning, but you never know...could have been the salsa. Anyway, I haven't been back and wouldn't go again. Be warned!!
