While I prefer hard packed, I appreciate the flavor, consistency and quality of the soft serve here. Those in my family who love soft serve tell me this is among the best they have had. Usually, friendly efficient service.

Today we stopped at the Banana Boat ice cream shop. We heard that they had great ice cream as well as food. I had a double cheeseburger, fries and a beverage. The burger was freshly made and delicious as were the fries. Although full I had to try the soft serve. The owner advised it was ice Cream not ice... More

I bought a double cheeseburger from there and it was so big I could hardly fit it in my mouth. They use fresh meat and toppings. They also have a large selection of Ice Cream which by the way is delicious. Very friendly people. Also the food is very affordable for those on a tight budget.

Love the creamy soft serve of the Banana boat. The chocolate is so good. No fancy stuff here, just plain goodness. Have had his burgers also, better than any fast food chain in a heart beat. Prices are so easy on a budget also. So get yourself a burger and make sure you leave lots of room for the Banana... More

Banana boat has the best ice cream. I love the butter pecan. Their servings are large and very cheap. This mom and pop business offers the tastiest burgers (2 patties) for under $2. They are always busy and have a very small parking lot, but you can call ahead and they have your order ready for you.

The bananna boat is a local hangout. If you live close by, it will work. If you are not from the area, it could be very easy to get into a rough area you might not desire. I am from the area and I try to be mindful of the surroundings. I must say, I have always receved good ice... More

Just a little hole in the wall with few tables and umbrellas outside. Walk up to window and enjoy the best real cream ice cream. They sell sandwiches and drinks but the chocolate soft served ice cream is my all time favorite. Guilt? No way...they sell a little bitty ice cream cone...I'm sure it's intended for little ones but...I can... More
