Banny's closed last week and they will be missed. There are no current plans to reopen anywhere else, but if they do they will have a loyal following. Thanks to all of the Bannworths who gave use such great food all these years.

Everything was wonderful. Taste your food before you reach for the salt or pepper because they season it perfectly. The prices were reasonable. I wish I lived closer and could eat more food! You have to try it.
