Review Summary:

Shy Bana is the classic example of taking a culture's food and trashing it. They boast about serving American southern cuisine, but the execution is anything but. The gumbo is more like a meat spaghetti sauce with sliced hot dogs. The macaroni and cheese is just macaroni with Cheez Whiz, which is a shame because I bet it would be cheaper to make the authentic version. The soft shell crab salad would be perfect except that they drizzle on some dressing that tastes like grape soda. On a positive note, the coleslaw isn't so bad.

How the FUCK is this gumbo? And served with a shitty burned biscuit.

Macaroni and Cheese. Cheese freshly scraped from the cook’s butt crack. Smelled like it, at least.

Soft Shell Crab Salad with the syrup from grape soda.

  1. This place is nasty. The first time I went, it was good, but then when I returned more than a year later, the biscuits were hard as rocks and the food just tasted like there was ketchup all over everything.
