We must have been bananas when we planned on going thirty minutes out of our way to stop here. The shack appears a-banana-doned, unripe, and vacant. As our banana dreams were peeled away, we decided to make like a banana and split. Would not recommend.

Listen, I am a die hard lover of all things banana. Maybe not to this level, but these guys definitely have the best banana milkshakes you will ever have. I always swing by here when we are in the area and have taken trips this way just to show the spot to friends.
