JOHNY BANANA REVIEW

  • 3

So, I was feeling like some nachos, so I decided to gather together my family to go to johny banana, since Id heard alot about it. Alot good, and some bad too.. The menu is large at first glanse but most of the pages is full of their special smoothie/milkshake like drinks. They all sounded SOOO good and looked good as well, however, whenever I go with anything milky or smoothy-like in consistancy at dinner, I can NEVER eat my meal, so I just went with the usual diet coke. We started with a plate of nachos, which were great, served with a nice homemade green salsa (spiiiiicy). They certainly werent the best Ive had, but I did enjoy them. They werent greasy at ALL. We also got a huge serving of guacamole, with another bowl of chips. The guac was served in a huge mortal and pestle like bowl , and was some of freshest tasting amazing guacamole Ive ever had.
As my main my father and I both had the 'pork n' roll' which was incredible. It was marinated pieces of pork with onions ,pineapple, and cheese in a spicy chipotle sauce served over 4 small corn tortillas which you wrap the filling around. It was incredible. My mom had some kind of beef build-your-own fajita which she claimed was the best she'd ever had, and my sister had a really delicious burger with grilled pineapple. I tried some, and let me tell you, it was one of the best burgers I have had in a while. It was served with more chips and a really smooth avocado salsa (looked like light green thick milk or something but tasted incredible).
So, all in all, we really enjoyed it, and for a dinner for 4 with two mains, two diet cokes, and two special fresh juices, the bill was only 100$ exactly. Not bad , not bad at all... give it a try if your sick of conventional 'quesidillas-served-with-beans-and-rice' mexican style food.

  1. You say "some bad too"....what didn't you like? Your review is a glow, really. Was there something that you would not recommend?

      I think you misread the review. It stated she had read some 'good and bad' things about the place.

        yes, I meant i had read some bad and some good things about it.. um.. come early, we came very early, at 5, and we were the only ones there and the service was still pretty slow. Once 6:30 rolled along, the place filled up and the two servers were running around like mad med, and it took a long time to get our bill and visa slips back. But food-wise, we were all very happy.
